I love to celebrate National Parks Week. This year I was at Wenatchee National Forest, which is located in Central Washington. Specially spent the weekend at Lake Chelan. The lake has a maximum depth of 1,486 feet (453 m). Lake Chelan is the third deepest lake in the United States, and the 26th deepest in the world. At its deepest, the lake bottom is 388 feet (118 m) below sea level.
I rode the Lady of the Lake vessel to Steheken. The name “Stehekin” is based on a Salishan word meaning “the way through.” The Stehekin Valley has served as a passageway for travelers, linking the Washington’s interior wilderness to the rugged Cascade Mountains and can only be reached via a boat ride.
