Probably every Seattelite has crossed the Cascades for a day/weekend trip to the iconic town of Leavenworth. You may have savored a danish or two, a pretzel or three, donned a crazy hat, stapled your dollar to the wall, ate too many salami samples, narrowed down your favorite mustard, bought something for your home, yourself, your mom--whatever it may be, your own memorable experience. I wonder if Germany has a touristy town that's like a little Seattle? Hmm...probably not, but that would be pretty cool. This yodeling town, nestled in a valley surrounded by mountains offers many outdoor activities with pretty incredible scenery. We came here in the spring a few years ago and set out to hike the hills, we got a mile or so in, took a few photos, but had to turn back due to a rapidly rising creek that crossed the trail.
The "Trail"-- ya right.
