Lake Chelan to Stehekin

 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.
 Another vista

 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.

The biggest picnic table I have ever seen.
