Leavenworth. If you live anywhere in the beautiful state of Washington, surely you’ve heard of this little bavarian town, nestled in the middle of the north central Cascade Mountains. Ifs quite lovely in the summer, and beautiful in the winter. It’s touristy, but it’s rich in history. It was even recently mentioned in the December 2013 issue of “Everyday with Rachel Ray” magazine. If you haven’t visited this place, it’s an absolute must. I highly recommend you visit the cheese monger shop, free cheese samples of the most delectable cheese ever made.
