Deception Falls, Leavenworth,…

Filed under: Personal,Tourism,Travel — ramsblog @ 12:11 am

Well, the weather forecast sites have been unpredictable these days. few weeks ago, we had thought of going over to the Crater Lake which is about 10 hours drive from home. Looking at the weather forecast related sites like weather.com, northwest weather, weather.live.com, weather.yahoo.com, etc etc, we canceled that trip and decided to go over to the local places. So headed to a zoo in Tacoma. However, the temperature was at high 70’s with beautiful sun light throughout the day. The Zoo and Aquarium was really nice and I liked the peacocks the most.

We went to the Crystal Mountains the following day, and though the weather was rainy off and on, it was great where we stopped over for lunch and again on top of the hill where we played in snow for some time. We enjoyed the weather and the fabulous scenic drive on rte 169 and rte 410.

the other weekend was also another wet day according to the forecast, we still decided to drive to the Leavenworth, and the temperature forecasted was at 60’s with cloudy or rain showers. Although it was cloudy when we started in the morning, it got better off and on for initial 40 to 50 miles and then it was sunny in the midst of those forests. We stopped at  Deception Falls [http://www.waterfallsnorthwest.com/waterfall.php?num=196&p=0], the place I had enjoyed even several years ago. Temperature was at 30’s back then, but it was a lot better this time at 50’s or so.

It was sure lot of water there and the view itself was gorgeous. Further looking up for resources on Deception Falls, it appears like the water might get as huge as to flood over the little bridge that appears on picture one above like the one below

Although we thought of taking a lunch break near Deception Falls, we decided to further to Leavenworth and have lunch over there. As we proceeded towards the Stevens Pass, the drive got much better with fantastic views of snow clad mountains all around.

Further along the way was the time to take a lunch break, it was around 2:30pm and we were also enjoying the view of a river alongside the driving. It was a wenatchee river flowing down towards skykomish. We just stopped to take see the river and noticed the campground and picnic tables around. So it was a sunny afternoon with temparature at 60’s, found a table with a bit of sunshine so to avoid a bit of chill, and had our lunch by the river. After a leisurely lunch till about 3:30, we went down to the water and yes, it was very cold. Water temparature might have been at 30s or 40s.

We finally reached Leavenworth around 5’ish, went around for a couple of hours. Leavenworth is a beautiful place with the structures like from Germany. A little village with nice people and lot of visitors all through the year. See here on wikipedia for more information about this place [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leavenworth%2C_Wa].

  3. Around 150 games in total, but that’s relatively small compared to our users. This way you are not disappointed when you get residence, and you won’t have to make a excursion back to the shop.
    It fizzles as the lights go out, and she says it’s been great talking to you.

  4. The new EP Pure Wet is a masterclass in experimental baselines and echoey, breathy vocals all underpinned by
    varying funk and R&B-based rhythms. Manual;
    this is the instructions; same again is it in good condition.

    If we relate to the recession with fear, then it will close us down further.

  5. This is more important than ever in a world where there
    are dozens of different audio formats. Often, long term schedules with a bit of breathing room work best.
    You will need an outside antenna to get clear reception on your
    radio.

  7. s better to use whole foods made from scratch for good health.
    Vitamin B3 or also called as Niacin is important in weight loss because
    it is responsible for the regulation of thyroid hormones and
    also in sugar levels in the body. When you’re about to start on your weight loss plan, it’s a good idea to think about your end goal and chunk it down into smaller goals.

  8. Would you like to save money by not hiring a wedding planner, but you feel overwhelmed by the thought of trying to organize, track and complete all
    the details and tasks by yourself. This suggests banks will be
    in a position to borrow cash from the central authority at low rates and subsequently, they are
    going to be able to offer low interest private loans.

    This way, a slice can be removed from the freezer, defrosted, and eaten whenever the urge for birthday cake hits.

  9. Too many folks have already thrown away plenty of good money on nothing
    but useless salt tablets being shipped from South
    America. In fact, I always suggest to those overweight vegetarians to keep to a max of 4 pounds a week so you won’t suffer loose skin post weight loss. Now, the average healthy amount people are supposed to lose is 2 pounds per week.
