    Have a great time. Hope your air quality is better than it is here. For the last week, anything I have been doing outside, I do with a thick dust mask on. Take care, will look forward to your story and picture. Gerry
    Take care my Friend.........

    I've been over in that area a handful of times and have only ridden there twice. Beautiful area. Have fun.

    Started out at Thousand Trails in Plain,Wa. Used their storage yard to leave the truck and trailer, and it helped that it is right next to the 6100 road we needed to start from.



    We headed up to Maverick Saddle. and then on to Sugarloaf lookout











    A couple stops to see Lake Wenatchee and Fish Lake below. Lake Wenatchee is the large one.





























    This area burned in 1994











    Here's Peter on his DRZ400















    Here we arrive at Sugarloaf Lookout.















    Some views from the lookout.

    Back on the road.









    Next stop is at the 4 way intersection of French Corral.







    Only 11 miles to Ardenvoir. Taking the Moe Ridge road. Stopped at the store and got something to drink. Then headed up the Entiat river road and find a camp site.



    Found a site at Lake Creek camp.











    So Peter found a friend right after sitting down after making camp.

    Back on the road we stopped by Junior Point Lookout. Only the base of the lookout is left. You can see our road below that we will continue on.







    Last year this Yert was setup for those that needed a place to stay. They must be late setting it up this year. Complete with a wood stove and table. My guess is that it is used by the snowmobile crowd as is the Big Hill Cabin.







    Onward we start to get some views of Lake Chelan. You can take a ferry ride form the town of Chelan up to the far end of the lake,about 3hr ride.



    In a region filled with lakes, Lake Chelan stands out. Fed by glaciers, this skinny lake is over 50 miles long and reaches depths of close to 1500 feet.





    Lady of the Lake Ferry to Stehekin

    From the town of Chelan you can enjoy a scenic 50-mile Lake Chelan cruise to Stehekin. Fast and slow options are available, depending on whether you want to savor the tour or just get to Stehekin as efficiently as possible. Once there, you can get out and hike the area's many trails, check out Rainbow Falls, take a bicycle or kayak tour, or relax and enjoy Stehekin's small town charm. The Golden West Visitor Center and Ranger Station of the North Cascades National Park is located in Stehekin; it offers a book store, guided walks, and other programs. The Stehekin Landing Resort offers a full-service restaurant and overnight accommodations.











    The town of Chelan is at the far end. Sorry about the fuzze pics here. The fire south of here in Cle-Elum has the smoke headed north



    Back on the road I spy cougar country up high. We saw about 12 ravens circling something , maybe a kill????







    More wide open country.

    Made camp Sat. night on the Mad River. Both times we stopped to camp we made sure to cool off in the river. The Mad River was a little warmer than the Entiat River. The MAd River was only about 15in deep where we setup camp.











    UP the next morning and headed to Tyee Lookout. Road 5700. This road is paved 1 lane until you meet up with road 5713 and turn right to get up to the lookout. I forgot just how rocky this road is. Peter 's bike decided to take a nap on one of the corners. He was ok and was able to get it picked back up and continue on.



    Here we are at the Lookout.











    You can see they built the foundation right into the bedrock.















    Room with a view.
