Bend, Oregon to Leavenworth Washington

One of the things I love about driving in the Pacific Northwest is all the snowcapped big peaks you see on the horizon. Today we saw Mt Hood, Mt Adams, and Mt Ranier. As we were leaving Sisters this morning we had a great view of the Sisters peaks.

After we checked into our hotel in Leavenworth we drove into the mountains to hike a trail called the Icicle Gorge trail it is. A 4.5 mile loop along a cascading river through pine forest filled with wildflowers.

For dinner we ate at a Bavarian restaurant in Leavenworth. I had weinerschnitzel and shared a strudel with Duke.

Tomorrow we catch the Alaska ferry to Juneau. I dont know how much internet coverage we will have so posting to this blog may be spotty.
