Lake Chelan and the North Cascades

I took 8 AM ferry from San Juan Island to Anacortes and proceeded East on Highway 20 through the North Cascades.  The day would end at an overpriced motel in Chelan.  Most tourists in the area were from Washington State.

The main attraction in Lake Chelan is a boat that crosses the lake each day.  It passes first by lakeside homes, then through a long completely undeveloped area finally arriving at Stehkin, a settlement accessible only by boat or air.  Along the way there were sightings of mountain goats, deer and forest fires.  The night was spent in Leavenworth, a town decorated to look like a Bavarian village.
