Leavenworth was beautiful! Dan & Leslie, I think I've decided one place that I'd like to go camping this summer... :)
We stayed at a resort called The Sleeping Lady Mountain Resort, so named after a section of the mountain that looks very much like a reclining woman. See the outline of her face and chest? If you look closely, you can also see that she's got a bit of a soul patch going on...not very lady-like, if you ask me!
This resort really supports the art community and there were sculptures and art pieces all over. They also are big advocates for getting out and enjoying nature - so no TV, no email and hardly any cell phone service. A perfect location for training because you can't be distracted by anything other than the task at hand (well, and the beautiful scenery).
The Bavarian town of Leavenworth was really cool, too. I didn't get to do too much exploring because we only had a few minutes of personal time in town to look around. And at this time of year, everyone closes up shop really early. Next time!
