    Don't go to the river banks

    On our way back home to Seattle, we stopped at the dam on the left side of the highway. There is a lookout there secured with a fence for safety of visitors. During the summer time, the river is so feisty with it's roaring waves going down hill. The melted snow from the mountains adds to the height of the water and carries logs down the hill sometimes.

    During these months, the river is very treacherous. Don't go to the river banks without companions.

    It takes at least three hours to drive to Leavenworth from Seattle. During festival season, there is more traffic going through the Steven's Pass and to the Cascade Mountains. The roads are only two way lanes and the driving time gets longer when there too many motorists going to Leavenworth! Make sure to leave early so you enjoy the views at Leavenworth and not rush going back home (unless, of course, if you are spending the night in Leavenworth). The roads are long and winding and sometimes steep. Plan ahead and take time to travel and stay on the speed limit.
