Quote:Quote:We just used to jump off number 12 tie on the 35 foot tall railroad bridge in Bothell...Much beyond that elevation is all your's. Hmm, the water in the Sammamish Slough in Bothell isn't generally real deep. Sometimes it seems the ducks are walking across rather than swimming. I don't think i'd want to jump off that bridge myself...Btw, did you notice the weather is clearing up a bit for this weekend, just in time for the full moon? Arrgghh.

Quote:There is a good spot east of gold bar to jump from cliffs into the skykomish river. Very cold water though. There are about 3 different levels to jump from with a stump being the highest.
