|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Leavenworth Washington is the Bavarian tourist-town of the Pacific Northwest located near the Eastern Edge of the Cascade Mountain range in Central Washington State. |
The entire town carries the German theme from their food and entertainment to the design of nearly all of their buildings.
Pictured is the younger Mr Johnson of the Enzian Inn. Each and every morning at 8:15 Am and 9:15 AM either Jr or Sr Johnson stands on the railing edge and blows out a couple tunes on this long horn much to the delight of the many breakfast eating onlookers at the Enzian Inn and on the street below.
If you visit Washington State and desire a piece of the "old country" without having to travel to Europe, then Leavenworth is the town for you.

Come Blow your Horn!!
A little taste of Bavaria in the USA. Good shot Tim, and the flowers give it a good lift. The BG makes me think of the hills / mountains in Europe. Good one,
Yes in Switzerland it is called ALPORNE, a powerful bass sound.
Good moment Tim, cheers.
I've been there. As a European, I really hated the place, it was so fake. But I can understand the idea behind it. The only good thing, the german bakker.
I love how the line of the horn, mimics the line of the mountains behind, very colorful and peaceful looking scene. I didn't know the town of Leavenworth was done in this manner, I'll have to visit sometime. TFS this photo, very nice.
