Day 2 – Monday December 10th – Leavenworth – Local Touring 
Indulge in a European breakfast buffet at the hotel… Fresh Belgium waffles, sliced cheeses and meats, biscuits and gravy, and more! Next, it’s… Red-Tail Canyon Farm for a Sleigh Ride! Travel back to the days when the horse was still the center of activity on the farm and down-home hospitality was enjoyed by everyone. Sing along to the beat of the jingle bell, listen to the clomping hoofs of the horses as we dash through the snow on one of their custom hand-built sleighs. We’ll travel along farm trails, over fields and through the woods snuggled under wool blankets. At the end of the ride warm yourself by the fire and sip on hot cocoa or pose for pictures with the horses. Next, it’s Lunch at Gustav’s “where good food, and old fashioned hospitality are still a tradition”.  After lunch, we’ll depart for Chelan County. First stop: Liberty Orchards’ Aplets & Cotlets factory… America’s favorite fruit-and-nut confection! Founded in 1920, by two enterprising Armenian immigrants who settled in the little town of Cashmere, located in the heart of the Washington State orchard country, Liberty Orchards has expanded to the full line of fruit-and-nut candies and fine food gifts. Next, it’s the Cashmere Historic Museum & Pioneer Village… The Museum embraces a wonderful collection of pioneer and Native American history. Some of the exhibits include hunting and fishing artifacts, a sweat lodge, native food and medicine items, an exhibit about the Hudson Bay Company, and a Meso-American collection. Basketry, beadwork, jewelry, and other work showcase the artistry and craftsmanship of the local Wenatchi Indians. We’ll head back to Leavenworth where your evening is free to enjoy town or relax at the resort. Icicle Village Resort (B, L)
