Lake Chelan

It has been a while since I last updated my blog….We have been in Chelan, WA for the last 5 days enjoying boating, sightseeing and hanging out with friends.

The highlight of the trip was a 110 mile boat ride (round trip) with friends. We started at the south end of Lake and cruised north for 55 miles to Stehekin at the very northern end of the lake. We had a great breakfast at the local "resort" and finished our visit with a short hike.

Here are some shots from our Chelan trip…
