a very recommended to stop by for 10-15 mins only while going to leavenworth or to lake wenatchee from Seattle. dont go only to see this fall, because it is a very small one and not worth the 2 hours drive.

We always stop at Deception Falls when going to or coming back from Leavenworth and the experience is always different, depending on how much water come down the falls. This time, we had an enormous amount of water cascading down the rocks. There is a...More
