As I was in Northern Washington Highway 20 is the most enjoyable and scenic way to get across the Cascades. This highway is only open about six months most years due to an average of 20 feet of snow ,so the road is good and very scenic.
This picture from Washington Pass Overlook shows Highway 20 as in goes through the chicane and heads down to Mazama.
Lake Chelan at Stehikin. The lake is over 50 miles long and the only way to Stehikin at the western end is by boat or seaplane. We chose the boat.
The public school at Stekin. A beautiful log cabin in the woods. Queenie and I rented bikes and rode to the shool and Rainbow Falls. While walking around the school grounds there was very fresh bear scat.
I am a sailor. Cashed it all in in 2003 and sailed around the NW USA then went to Mexico for two years then sailed to Australia on a Baltic 42. Sold the boat in OZ and bought a Privilege 42 in Venezuela. Not fully retired so have been doing the nuclear steam generator change out gig to recharge my financial batteries. Work 13-15 hours a day for two to three months. Make great money quickly so I can get back to the boat.
