Chelan Lakeshore Trail Hike

Overnight backpacking trip from Prince Creek to Stehikin with Jean and Kelly


Getting dropped off at Prince Creek This lovely sweet-smelling bush was everywhere. I looked it up - it's a Lewis' mock-orange (Philadelphus lewisii)


Wondered why this pole was sticking out of the cliff


I hiked with the umbrella because it was HOT! Apparently this is wild salsify


This little tree was trying to grow on a boulder Purifying water




If you look carefully, you can see one of the two rattlesnakes we saw on this hike Kelly tried climbing up here to this throne (with steps) carved into a charred tree, but wisely gave up when one of the steps came off.


The only wild raspberry bush I found




A storm was coming up. It looked bad, but luckily we only had a few drops This grouse didn't want us to cross the trail, because one of her babies was on it.


The wildfire came through in 2011. It left some impressive fields of charred stumps


The cabin at Moore Point. Complete with bunk beds. We camped in our tents, though. Feet get a little dirty when hiking on dusty trails!


Dinner-time


Beautiful sunset Our tents
