Signs Along U.S. Route 2

Last Saturday we drove east on U.S. Route 2 in Washington State to meet up with family in Leavenworth, Washington.


When we stopped for breakfast in Gold Bar we saw these signs and more. My favorite is the Positively No Profanity or Dancing!

This sign does not lie. I wish the Big Bear was clearer in my photo.

As you approach Leavenworth you see the beautiful and powerful Wenatchee River.

Welcome to Leavenworth, a Bavarian like village nestled against the eastern slopes of the Cascades and right on U.S. Route 2.

This is my favorite sign from Leavenworth since our main reason to drive east was to see our son Dan and our daughter in law.

Hope you enjoyed traveling the U.S. Route 2 with us.

Linking up with signs, signs hosted by Lesley.

And back at home we are still working on some planter extension projects at this old house.

We received the sad news that our neighbor passed away last evening. Just one short month since she was diagnosed. Our hearts grieve for her children and grand children. Life is very unpredictable with no guarantees for tomorrow, even for the healthy. Make peace with God through Jesus Christ. He is the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father but by Him (Jesus). Hug more, love more, smile more, encourage more until that day comes.

  1. Love, love, love the “no profanity or dancing” sign. Do you think they fear both things go together?

    Sorry to hear about your neighbor. Definitely life is unpredictable and the best policy is to be prepared to meet our Maker, because it WILL happen.

  2. Wonderful signs Ellen, i don’t think I could pick just one!
    The murals are so well done!
    So sorry to hear of your neighbour’s passing. Not everyone will have even a month, so we DO need to prepare to meet God now through His dear Son.

  3. so sorry about your friend and neighbor passing…yes, we really should try to live ea day as tho it might be our last..I like all the signs you shared…

  4. Yes Ellen:
    We have lost several friends lately too. Make peace with God is right! Lovely pictures and I too laughed at the dancing one. When my husband was a teen, he was very active in his youth group at a church that didn’t allow roller skating. Seems silly to me but then – I did roller skate. Also, later he did too and even backwards very well!

  5. Ellen, I’m so sorry to hear about your neighbor’s passing.
    I tubed down that river. One of my friends had a cabin in Leavenworth. We had a lot of fun there when we were kids.

  6. So sad about your neighbor. Our neighbor who is my age passed away yesterday, also. His mom, who is 80, is so sad but we are thankful Mike is in his Heavenly Home now.
    That pic of the river is gorgeous. I need to visit Helen GA and show you some pics of how similar it is to your Bavarian Village. Lovely photo of your son and dil. Wishing you a good evening.

  7. So sorry to hear about your neighbour. I like the no profanity or dancing sign. Maybe they’re worried about the profanity they may get after they refuse service. The dancing I’m not so sure.
