Eastern WA Off Road - Leavenworth Christmas (12-19-10)
 
Leavenworth Christmas Lighting Festival
Report by Clay Graham - Eastern Washington Off Road

On Sunday December 19, 2010 Eastern Washington Off Road met up at the München Haus
in Leavenworth Washington for the last day of the 2010 Christmas Lighting Festival.

The day was a lot of fun thanks to the people of Leavenworth that put so much work into making the Christmas Lighting Festival happen.
We want to thank all the people that came out to this Eastern Washington Off Road get together.

Merry Christmas to all!

Below are the pictures of our Leavenworth Adventure.

It had snowed pretty good around where we live in Selah Washington the day before.
The pass reports looked good on this day so we fueled up and headed to Leavenworth.

The traffic slowed coming across Blewett Pass because of all the road smut being kicked up.

We got to Leavenworth just before 1 PM. We parked in a $10 a day parking area next to the Adventure Inn and headed to meet the others.

The München Haus has a great family atmosphere, great food and beer so this was the place to have lunch to start our Leavenworth Adventure.
We all sat in the München Haus's heated outdoor courtyard.

As we sang Silent Night the stars came from each side of town.
As they walked in front of each building, the Christmas Lights came on.
