Glad you and the kids had a great time with us, and we hope to have you come back and visit Leavenworth again to float with us! Great advice on the parking as we are looking into offering direct shuttles to hotels in the future.

We did not use wet suits. The air temperature was in the 80s and the water was cold but refreshing and many of us were able to stop at the sand bars and swim briefly.
