South from Stehekin

"South from Stehekin", 8 x 10 In, Oil on Museum Board

I journeyed with a group of Plein Air Washington friends to a famous and remote area near the North Cascades National Park--the town of Stehekin at the northern end of Lake Chelan. The four hour boat from Chelan arrives in Stehekin around noon, so we had plenty of time to get out our painting gear and head down the road along the lake from the Stehekin Lodge to paint. This was the second painting, looking south.

Lake Chelan is 50 miles long and is the third deepest lake in the United States according to Wikipedia. But the thing about Stekekin is that there are no roads or highways to the village. You can get in by the boat from Chelan or by hydro-plane. Looking across the lake at the mossy rock cliffs and up the valley to the snow-capped peaks, there is no doubt about it--you are in the interior of the Cascade wilderness
