Last month I went to Leavenworth, Washington which is a delightful town nestled between mountains, and we drove about 6 miles out of town to Eagle Creek Ranch for a fantastic experience! It had snowed about 14 inches the previous night (but the roads had been plowed) and it made for a gorgeous spectacular. The snow at the ranch was deep and the thousands of tall evergreen trees were loaded with so much snow we could see no green at all. The entire landscape was deep white pristine snow to match the trees-- and the sleigh ride was a dream come true. I have never seen so much white. It covered EVERYTHING. I have grown up in the Northwest US and live with snow cap mountains visible year round, but this was something I had never seen, where there was literally nothing but white everywhere we looked but especially the trees were amazing. I'm sure it is not always covered with this much white in the winter but we certainly lucked out for the day we were there. Before and after the sleigh ride (it was actually a large open wagon with snow runners attached) there was free hot apple cider (and cookies) in the barn with a fire burning in a stove. Very rustic, but warm. I will be going to Leavenworth again in a couple weeks with my siblings and spouses and plan to go to Eagle Creek Ranch for another sleigh ride. I hope we have a similar experience with such a glorious snow show. (they had plenty of blankets for us so we stayed quite warm on our ride)
