In the vicinity of Leavenworth


For most of my adult life, Leavenworth, WA was the name for paradise (although I seem to have found a new paradise now).  Icicle Canyon stretching south past the turnoff at the 76 holds untold wonders of rock, mountains, rushing creek and mighty ponderosas.  If you've been there, you know what I'm talking about.


Ryan and I spent the weekend in Leavenworth to celebrate the wedding of a good friend, renew ties with other wonderful friends and meet new people. 


We did not stay for long, but made sure to spend a couple hours among the shady boulders, jump in Icicle Creek and eat lunch in a beautiful place.


We left our camera in its case, but I'll share with you photos from previous trips of many fun days spent in the canyon.  Meeting the physical and mental challenges I found for myself over the years in such magnificent surroundings was rewarding and profoundly shaped my view of how life works.


As Ryan says, working hard in nature is one of the keys to happiness and living a rich life.



Wherever your Leavenworth is, I hope that you make the time to spend happy days there soon.

Great information I would recommend this company to others. They connected me with a Better life company quickly and I was able to request my loan in a timely manner.
