LEAVENWORTH, Wash. —

Most people think of snorkeling in tropical waters. But two Leavenworth men think the icy streams of north central Washington are ideal.

Russ Ricketts and Matt Collins wear wetsuits as they snorkel through white water, looking at salmon, finding old fishing lures and drifting past deer and cougars.

The Wenatchee World reports ( http://bit.ly/XZsNVx) Collins snorkels as part of his job as a fish biologist for the Yakama Nation. Rickets went along with his friend one time and became hooked on the sport.

They snorkel in the Wenatchee and Icicle rivers. When those rivers are running full in the spring, the two dive into smaller streams. In the low-water times, they enjoy a pool in the Wenatchee River at Tumwater Canyon.
