North Cascades & Stehekin, WA
34th Anniversary TripAugust 17-26, 2007

We returned to Stehekin for the 5th time from August 20-26, 2007, after a night at Marblemount and two nights at the Mazama Country Inn on highway 20 (North Cascades Highway). We spent our honeymoon in Stehekin 34 years ago in 1973, then returned for our 25th anniversary, again in 2002 with Denny and MaryAnne (Gary's brother and sister-in-law), and last year (August 13-19, 2006). It's becoming an anniversary tradition to come to this magical place of majestic scenery, sounds of nature, and restful solitude, even in the summer high season. The picture on the left was taken from the yard just outside our room in 2006.

Our favorite place to stay in Stehekin is the
Silver Bay Inn
, The photo below is from the hot tub facing south down Lake Chelan.
