Stehekin, North Cascades National Park

The Dehaviland Beaver bush or seaplane.

Stehekin can only be accessed by air or water, by foot or horseback.
Pictured high above the 3rd largest lake ( Chelan ) in America. 1500' is depth of lake, I believe, at deepest.
The canyon is the deepest in America.

Natives lived here until this area was discovered by white men. It was taken for agriculture and sent natives to Coleville Reservation. A desert.

A valley used for growing fruit until recently when wineries have been put in.

This area surrounding Lake Chelan was the recent location for many forest fires in Washington state.
