Many of you know that I grew up in the Bavarian village of Leavenworth.
Since it’s fishing season and since he hasn’t visited in two years, this is the third weekend in a row that Sim has driven to Leavenworth. The Icicle River is one of the greatest places in the world to fish for salmon; it is absolutely gorgeous. And every year it draws many of Sim’s lifelong mountain man friends to its bank. So I’m glad Sim is savoring the last little bit of Washington that he has left. It’s very bittersweet. He graduates from college on Saturday and we leave for Iowa on Sunday.
So here’s a little introduction to the town of Leavenworth for those who aren’t familiar. (It features Joel McHale from Talk Soup 🙂 )
