The 04/29 – sorry, 2018-04-28 – edition of Powerline’s Steven Hayward’s The Week in Pictures included a photo of interest to friends. In 2014 I inquired on Ricochet for advice and encouragement about a place in remote northwestern Washington called Lake Chelan. In-laws had arranged a family reunion there; naturally I wanted to go prepared.
Well, Larry Koler provided the advice and encouragement. Thanks, Larry! We had a good time, although the water was cold and the skies smoky from the wildfires. We got into that boat at the southern end and chugged through mountainous emptiness for an hour to reach the lodges at the northern end.
While relatives were trudging up and up and around mountains for days with heavy backpacks on their backs, I stayed down by the lake, swimming, canoeing, and riding the seaplane. See this photo from The Week in Pictures? That’s the seaplane deck; that the lovely clear water; those the mountains.
So somebody else has found the place! We’ll just have to deal with that next time.
