Just got back from a quick road trip to Eastern Washington. We went to Lake Chelan and took a boat trip on the Lake called the “Lady Express” run by the Lady of the Lake Boat Company. The round-trip takes you from Chelan to Stehekin in the North Cascades and back again.
The day was about as close to perfect as one would dare to hope for, a calm lake surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery and just enough clouds to make for interesting pictures. In some spots the leaves of the trees looked like cascades of gold down the stark hillsides. But the icing on the cake was when we saw the family of mountain goats as we chugged back at the end of the day.
We felt exceptionally fortunate since today was very rainy and we wouldn’t have been able to see anything much. What a difference one day can make.
