Variations on a theme..the many faces of the Wenatchee River

Leavenworth, Washington is a favorite destination for us, and to get there the road parallels the Wenatchee River.  The river roars through the Tumwater Canyon, meanders along the foothills, and flows through the town, in one end and out the other.  The river is never the same way twice, but it is  always a beautiful sight.

Here is the river, before it enters Tumwater canyon.  Peaceful, isn’t it.

But not too far down the road, in Tumwater Canyon, it looks totally different.

And when the river flows through town, and comes out the other side…

It almost doesn’t seem like the same river.  And the view is not the best part.  You have to hear it.
