Take a Hike | Lake Wenatchee Trail

Whenever we visit a city or place we’ve been before, I like to plan at least one day where we go explore something new. When we visited Leavenworth, Washington last week for a little R&R with some friends, I was excited to take a couple hours to wander around Lake Wenatchee for the first time.
