Frank and I have been busy, I guess. I'm going to "catch up" by posting some stories and photos of our activities in no particular order. I might not even put dates on the events. So there.
First off: A quick trip to Stehekin.
|The Lady Express on Lake Chelan|
I decided I wanted a few extra hours at home, so I dropped him off at the Bridge Creek trailhead on Saturday after lunch and said, "I'll meet you in Stehekin tomorrow."
Early Sunday morning I boarded the Lady Express in Chelan and began a two-and-a-half hour boat ride up Lake Chelan.
|You wouldn't believe the boring scenery on the way up lake . . . .|
|The boat arrived at Stehekin Landing around 11 a.m.|
|Major activity at the landing - that's the national park bus.|
Frank arrived on the 3:15 shuttle bus Sunday afternoon as planned. He was very hot, tired and dusty but we cleaned up with a dreamy swim in the crystal-clear waters of Lake Chelan. SO GREAT!

We didn't have to get on the boat back to Chelan until noon on Monday, so we rented bikes in the morning and rode a couple miles to the excellent bakery for breakfast.
|Frank and cinnamon roll. Yum.|
|The Harlequin Bridge - our turn around point.|
|Kokanee salmon (land-locked sockeye) in the Stehekin River.|
