Summer.........slip, sliding away.

Summer and the season is slowly slip, sliding away. The start of summer at the meadow is noted by the melting of the winter snows on Three Brothers Peak and the emergence of fireweed. The fireweed is the last showy wildflower to appear on the meadow. Once the fireweed is in bloom, summer is in full swing.

Summer days at the meadow are perfect for lounging around in the LaFuma recliners on the deck. At nightime the recliners are perfect for observing the numerous meteor showers of July and August.

The weather will continue with sunny warm days through the early part of October. However, the nights will start cooling down towards the end of August.

The Wenatchee River Salmon Festival is September 20th through the 23rd. This event for kids and adults is at the Leavenworth National Fish Hatchery. Loads of fun no matter what your age.
