Spring has definitely arrived in Leavenworth. Although it’s been weeks since I’ve worn boots, the temperatures have now risen into the 60s the past few days. The sunshine is an added bonus.
On Saturday Linda and I went out to Sleeping Lady. We picked up drinks at O’Grady’s and sat outside on the patio.
We then walked around the grounds, admiring some of the sculptures and stonework.
The Chihuly glass sculpture is definitely my favorite.
The snow covered mountains create a stunning background.
The beauty of these mountains never ceases to impress this girl from the flat Canadian prairies.
Colder temperatures and less snow? Or milder temperatures and more snow? Winnipeg is the former and Leavenworth is the latter.
Today is Thursday and we’ve had over two feet of snow since Tuesday night when I moved back to Leavenworth from Wenatchee. The Washingtonians take it in their stride. But after eleven winters in Mexico I find it rather fascinating.
Here is the view from my front door with the 17th hole of the golf course in the background.
And here is Steve’s truck after the foot of snow we got last night.
It’s now Friday. Linda and I went out to Sleeping Lady and went for a walk. It was warm and the paths were primarily clear with slushy spots. I was warm in my ski jacket and toque. I even wore my Thinsulate gloves for the first time although a lighter pair would have been just fine.
This beautiful glass sculpture by Chihuly looks completely different with the snow in the background.
We also came across this quaint little bridge.
Here is one of the charming cabins at the resort.
Today is Saturday. Once again the sun is hiding. We had snow showers this morning instead of the heavy snowfall we had earlier in the week. This afternoon it changed to rain and then to snow. I’m hibernating and catching up on laundry.
I am quite enjoying my first winter in snow in eleven years. I know I will never tire of the spectacular view of the mountains, even when snow covered.
Today is Sunday with more snow in the forecast. And it’s time to post this.
