Leavenworth, the Washington Alps

It's the jewel of the Cascade Mountains. So this Bavarian Village is one of the best places to view the Fall colors of deep red, vibrant orange, and sunny yellow.

Driving into Leavenworth from the west via Highway 2, you will wind through spectacular Tumwater Canyon.  Hugging sheer canyon walls on one side, and winding and twisting through the rocky gorge, the breathtaking white water river rushes past you on the other side. Suddenly, you round a corner and there is Leavenworth, nestled in against the mountains that rise to more than 8,000 feet.
