The lake is of glacial origins and is in a transition zone between wet, western Washington woodlands and the drier pine and fir of the eastern Cascades.
And oh boy, before we even reached our destination, we were blown by the beautiful drive.
To be honest, none of us were prepared for this, but it was surreal amidst snow all around.
Random AF stop on railway lines to get a photo? YES!
Evergreen foret, snow, lake and towering mountains - all so serene!
We made sure to capture the moments, some times in real candids ...
... and other times in fake candids!
Absolutely the most beautiful place where I have played mafia at, lol! The mafias were distracted by nature's charm indeed.
And FINALLY my new drone was here!!
And this was my first flight in 2021!
And then this was the view from our drive. Snowy peaks and glacial rivers!
Can there be more beautiful pitstops?
We then stopped at the famous Leavenworth where the entire town center is modeled on a Bavarian village as part of a civic initiative to save the city from economic hardship by boosting tourism!
Leavenworth's elevation is 1,166 feet, with mountains rising 5,000-8,000 feet nearby and offers an abundance of activity and excitement for everyone, a pony ride for example haha!
A sumptuous meal to end the day
