Roslyn and Cle Elum area has plenty of places to have fun around the water. Normally this time of year is a great time to have fun in the rivers in the area – although you always should be careful. This year because of the heavy snow fall in the mountains the rivers are running fast and cold. Thus take extra precaution if you plan to be around the rivers or better yet maybe just enjoy the beach at Lake Cle Elum. Just last week a kayaker lost his life in the river northwest of Roslyn. Be safe!
