Wenatchee Apple Capital of the World


ut on your hiking boots boots. No, wait … strap on your skis. No, instead grab your golf clubs. Or a fishing rod. Or wriggle into your swimsuit or biking shorts. Or maybe your little black dress and dancing shoes? Tough decision, eh? The Wenatchee Valley’s four seasons of fun mean locals and visitors alike can gear-up for activities ranging from outdoor sports to indoor shopping to next-door strolls through galleries and tasting rooms. Wenatchee, the valley’s commercial hub on the Columbia River and Apple Capital of the World, beckons with its lively and historic downtown, museum, hotels, convention and performing arts venues, bus and train depots and miles of riverside parks and trails. The city’s 1-year-old Pybus Public Market, a waterfront retail and restaurant development, has become the new go-to location for public events such bike races, marathons and live musical performances. The historic building — a renovated steelfabrication plant — boasts 20 vendors, including its primary tenant: the Wenatchee Valley Farmers Market, which runs outdoors May through October and year-round inside Pybus. Along the river, a five-mile stretch of the 10-mile Apple Capital Recreation Loop Trail meanders through a waterfront park dotted with artworks and attractions (mini-railway, nature trails) with easy access to downtown shopping, galleries, antique stores and eateries— which now includes a handful of craft breweries producing a number of regionally popular beers. Fifteen minutes south and 5,000 feet up, Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort ofers some of the state’s best powder skiing, late-season competitions, rentals and lessons and food and drink at the Hampton Mountain Lodge.

Four-year-old Joel Brownlee, center, waves his train ticket, as he joins other classmates in a ride on the Wenatchee Riverfront Railway on the last day of school for the St. Joseph’s School preschool class. Wenatchee is also a gateway to even more delights beyond the city limits ◆ Vineyards and tasting rooms attract thousands of wine bufs annually. ◆ Leavenworth, 22 miles west, celebrates Bavarian architecture, music and culture. ◆ Cashmere, 12 miles west, boasts eclectic shopping districts and is home to world-famous Aplets and Cotlets. ◆ Chelan, 45 miles north, ofers sun and water sports along the shores of the 55-mile-long Lake Chelan. ◆ Waterville, 25 miles east, is home to an historic courthouse, hotel and downtown, along with hundreds of artifacts at the Douglas County Historical Museum. And don’t forget … in season, look for roadside fruit and vegetable stands, wildflowers on nearby Foothills Trails system, wildlife galore (deer, elk, moose, geese, mountain sheep, salmon), kayaking daredevils (near Leavenworth), paragliders (near Chelan) and fields of glaciallydeposited boulders (near Waterville).

Keep on truckin’ Next time you’re idling at a stoplight behind three big semis chock-full of apples, curb your grumbling and remember those trucks (well, not ONLY those trucks) haul most of a multi-billion-dollar economy. In fact, about 216 trucks a day, five days a week, transport some kind of fruit through the Wenatchee Valley to distant markets. During harvest, hundreds more on short hauls lug fruit from orchards to packing sheds to cold storage facilities as part of 2,200 trucks per day — 700,000 to 800,000 trucks trips

per year — that bring stuf to us and take our stuf away. Lotsa jobs, too. Need a visual? Stop by Stemilt Growers in Olds Station at the end of September to see the long line of 18-wheelers waiting to be appled up.

Blue lagoon

First Fridays

Talk all you want about your favorite swimming holes in mountain lakes and lowland creeks. (Yeah, yeah, they’re all glorious.) Truth is, few dipping spots are as easy to reach and, some would say, more fun than the swimming lagoon at Wenatchee’s Walla Walla Point Park. Perfect for kids, the 225-foot long float-lined area (with beach) is a wading and dogpaddler´s paradise. Parking lot nearby. Restrooms nearby. Snack stand open nearby during softball games. Plus, the slowly moving water, fed by the Columbia River, warms by midday to ... well, not toasty but comfortable. That means the lagoon’s only goosebumps will be on the geese at water’s edge, not your kids. Honk.

Wenatchee First Fridays ArtsWalk is a great way to have fun downtown checking out the work of artists in shops, galleries and restaurants. The afternoon-early evening lineup changes each month, so there’s always something new to see and experience. Sculpture, painting, music ... and much more. 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. the first Friday of each month. For info and a list of artists and businesses for the current month’s lineup: Wenatchee First Fridays on Facebook or at their blog:

Young squirts love Wenatchee’s Rotary Park Splash Pad because it does just that — squirts and splashes. Locally, a more squeal-inducing water experience simply isn’t available at the rock-bottom price of free. About half the size of a basketball court, the Splash Pad is dotted with spray nozzles, shower heads, water cannons and other kinds of slooshing devices. Sure, wear a swimsuit if you like, but many folks, urged by summery heat, take the leap in shorts, T-shirts and big grins. Hint: Watch out for

Round and round we roll — woo! woo! — as engineers on the Wenatchee Riverfront Railway’s mini-train toot their own horns. And rightly so. The 10-inch gauge railway has to be some of the cheapest fun (kids $2) in Wenatchee as it makes tracks on tracks laid in Riverfront Park near the Columbia River. Train bufs affiliated with the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center keep it chugging on a spare schedule of only 15 days a year, and its infrequent operation is definitely part of its must-ride appeal. Plus, the diminutive railway has a cute little train station with a real caboose to clamber over.

T-shirts and big grins. Hint: Watch out for nerdy teens on the water cannons who’ve been trained on video war games. They’re crackerjack shots.

Bomber Bowl Bomber Bowl, one of the most popular runs at Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort, gets its name from the 1944 crash of a B-24 bomber. It crashed about 500 feet below the summit, killing all six crewmen. A monument — a wing of the plane and marker — are mounted at the site.

Visitors enjoy the different plants and wonderful views of the Wenatchee Valley from Ohme Gardens. Left: A ray of sunshine hits the fall foliage along the Apple Capital Recreation Loop Trail at the foot of Fifth Street.

Gardeners, the one-and-a-half acre plot at the Washington State University Tree Fruit Research Center (Springwater and Western avenues) features flowers, grasses, trees and various turfs that actually thrive on climatic extremes of hot summers, cold winters and, for some of us, lukewarm cultivation skills. The project’s goal is nothing short of providing you the know-how for a colorful garden year-round, say the Masters themselves. Visit soon — it’s bloomin’ terrific.

Clickety-clack That big hulking choo-choo at the center of Locomotive Park should definitely chug to the top of your whistle-stop tour of Wenatchee´s must-see sights. The Great Northern 1147 steam locomotive, 110 years old this year, and its accompanying tender car weigh 129 tons, stretch nearly 70 feet long and lug a boxcar-full of history. It woo-woo´ed through the Leavenworth-Wenatchee areas up till the mid-1940s, when diesel engines replaced steam, and even ran the Wenatchee-Oroville route for awhile. Legend says Ol´ 1147 set a record on that route by hauling the longest train ever for its class. Now, the Wenatchee Riverfront Railway group and other community organizations help keep it on-track as a favorite attraction.

Ohme, Oh my! Grab a blanket and a picnic and head to Ohme Garden, an alpine retreat overlooking the Columbia River on the north

edge of Wenatchee. You’ll find paths, lots of shade from highcountry trees transplanted to the scenic spot. The ridgetop oasis, maturing for 82 years into an alpine wonderland, offers multiple water features — ponds, streams, waterfalls — surrounded by towering firs and cedars. Heck, it’s so shady in some groves that frequent visitors often bring sweaters (even in July) to ward off the noontime chill. Our favorite: the Sylvan Pool, where hand-crafted stone benches deliver additional cool comfort. And don’t forget, flower lovers, that out in the sunny meadows alpine blooms last well into summer.

The Davis Shows Northwest carnival attracts visitors to Eastmont Community Park as the Wings and Wheels Festival begins in East Wenatchee. Festivities include a classic car show, radio-controlled plane show and flight of the Miss Veedol replica.


erched on the east banks of the Columbia River between basalt cliffs and the Cascade foothills, the city of East Wenatchee gives its visitors a wide range of things to do. Like history? Check out the monument for the first nonstop flight across the Pacific Ocean, which ended in a crash landing north of city in 1931. The city celebrates the historic landing each year with the Wings & Wheels Festival in October. Is sipping wine more your pace? Make a stop at Martin Scott Winery. Golfers have a choice between Wenatchee Golf & Country Club and

Highlander Golf Course. East Wenatchee offers indoor shopping at Wenatchee Valley Mall and the only bowling alley in the Wenatchee Valley: Eastmont Lanes, 704 Grant Road. Visitors can also simply explore the waterfront or take in some views by walking, riding or taking a drive around the city. Hop on the Apple Capital Recreation Loop Trail at the foot of Ninth, 15th or 19th streets. The eastside stretch of the trail offers such gems as Jude’s Oasis and Porter’s Pond. You can also walk across the pedestrian Pipeline Bridge — the first vehicle bridge across the Columbia River.

Thrills from above If the Apple Capital Recreation Loop Trail has a thrill spot — a point where hikers and bikers say, “Whoa, mama, this is cool!” — it’s gotta be the 103-year-old Pedestrian Pipeline Bridge. It’s just plain fun to be held aloft on the 1,000-foot-long steel truss span, the very first road bridge across the Columbia River. Sure, the wagons and Model-Ts have been replaced with swoop-helmeted cyclists and young moms pushing giant strollers. But the big irrigation pipe — a fixture on the bridge since its construction — still carries water to 4,000 acres of East Wenatchee fruit trees.

Ancient remnants Clovis stone and bone tools were discovered near East Wenatchee and are more than 11,000 years old. Ice Age floods shaped much of what you see in the valley, with some of the ancient deluges rising to 1,100 feet. And there were a lot of floods. Maybe 90 or so.

Power to the people Publicly owned dams on the Columbia River provide the cheapest power in the United States, about a third of Seattle’s rates and a fifth of California’s.

A friendly oasis The Bridge of Friendship Japanese Garden in East Wenatchee is so creatively designed — shade, breezes, flowing water — that visitors can find cool relief even on the hottest summer

Clouds moving over the Wenatchee Valley provide a backdrop for the twin birds atop the monument at Pangborn-Herndon Memorial Park on Fancher Heights. The park and basalt spire honor aviators Clyde Pangborn and Hugh Herndon, who completed the first non-stop flight over the Pacific Ocean in 1931 and crash-landed at nearby Fancher Field. evenings. This eight-year-old pocket park is tucked only a dozen steps from the busy intersection of 9th Street N.E. and Eastmont Avenue, yet provides the unexpected paradox of stillness amid visual variety. No lie. Follow the park’s short trail to its cedar bridge, rest under its cover, listen to its waterfall’s gurgle, and you’ll agree this urban patch of perfection is a landscaping gem.

Pybus Public Market Downtown on the riverfront


he h $9 million illi Pybus P b Public P bli Market M k t att th the ffoott off O Orondo d Avenue is the most ambitious commercial development yet on the Columbia River waterfront in North Central Washington About 20 vendors call the restaurant-and-retail complex home. The tenant mix in the 65-year-old rehabbed building, formerly a steel fabrication plant, blends contemporary food trends — Latin fusion, French country, local-fresh and healthy — with boutique wares (teas, olive oil, exotic nuts) and public spaces for art, music, strolling and just lounging around. You can also rent a bike at Pybus Market and go for spin on the Apple Capital Recreation Loop Trail, which runs through parks along (and over!) the Columbia River and right by the market. The plaza space on the west side of the project is home for the Wenatchee Valley Farmers Market. Look for the market’s big red neon sign anywhere along Orondo Avenue from the Chelan County Courthouse to Wenatchee Avenue, in downtown Wenatchee.

Stretch your legs Start at Pybus Market and walk north about 350 yards on the paved Apple Capital Recreation Loop Trail, past a boat launch, pole-top osprey nest, public art sculptures and great views of the Columbia River. Take the Riverwalk Crossing pedestrian bridge to Wenatchee Avenue and First Street, about 400 yards. The Performing Arts Center of Wenatchee plaza offers seating, a big fountain and more public art. Head south two blocks on Wenatchee Avenue past the Saddlerock Pub & Brewery, historic Owl Soda Fountain, more shops and antique shops and restaurants to Orondo Avenue. Head east about 400 yards back to Pybus Market.

Take a hike Mission Ridge-PipelineSquilchuck-Clara Lake Loop: When it’s not ski season, take the wide, paved road to the Mission Ridge Ski and Board Resort, just 11.5 miles from Wenatchee. The hike’s 6,000 foot high point at Lake Clara offers great views. It’s a great hike any time of year, but particularly gorgeous in October when the larches change color. Get to the trail from the Mission Ridge ski area parking lot. The loop is about 7 miles with about 1,050 feet of elevation gain, but several variations are possible for shorter or longer hikes. No pass required.

People in the torch light parade wind their way down Mimi ski run at Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort during Christmas on the Mountain.

Frozen expressions Some people know they’ve finally found their sport when they hear about Mission Ridge’s annual Downhill Dummy Race. “Sign me up,” they blurt. But

here’s the thing … the race is only for real dummies — the stiff, stuffed, glassy-eyed kind. (Oh wait, you do fit right in.) Participants handcraft their

dummies, or wildly dress up a mannequin, and then bolt them to skis or snowboards and let ‘em slide to the finish line. The most elaborate concoctions are

life-sized papier maché likenesses of baseball players or movie stars, or scarecrow-like characters riding a giant salmon or squeezed into an airplane.

Local schoolchildren involved with Art on the Avenues’ Beauty of Bronze program create found-object art projects each year in Wenatchee’s Riverfront Park.

Art on the Avenues An eclectic collection of outdoor sculptures


rt on the Avenues is an outdoors collection of about 80 pieces of public art gracing the sidewalks in downtown Wenatchee and the waterfront parks along the Apple Capital Recreation Loop Trail. The organization founded its sculpture garden along the trail in 2008, with the late Twisp artist Bernard Hosey’s wrought-steel sphere “Pre-Mathematics” as its inaugural piece. To reach the garden, walk from downtown on First Street over the Riverwalk Crossing pedestrian bridge. Pre-download a copy of the map from the project’s website, World photos

Right: Rain droplets cover “PED.” Far Right: Artist Jeff Tangen tightens the final bolts during the installation of his work called Celebration in Blue. The piece is located on a pedestal by the Chelan County PUD at the corner of the Fifth Street and Wenatchee Avenue.

Sultan artist Kevin Pettelle uses a torch to remove water before waxing his “PED” sculpture in the Art on the Avenues Sculpture Garden at Riverfront Park.

The handling youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d expect from Can-Am. The power youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d expect from no one.



With 101 hp, the Can-AmÂŽ Maverickâ&#x201E;˘ is the most powerful side-by-side vehicle ever built. But power means nothing without control. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we paired its RotaxÂŽ 1000R engine with a new TTA (Torsional Trailing A-arms) rear suspension for an unbeatable combination of power and control. Add in advanced ergonomics for maximum comfort and optimal access to cockpit controls, and the Can-Am Maverick lets you easily handle a variety of terrain, from dunes to desert to trail. What does all of this mean? Nothing until you get behind the wheel and experience the new Can-Am Maverick for yourself.

Among them are Leavenworth’s Icicle Brewing Co. and Wenatchee’s Columbia Valley Brewing, Saddle Rock Pub & Brewery (all established in 2011) and Badger Mountain Brewery (est. 2013). Then there’s Lake Chelan Brewery and Milepost 111 Brewing Company in Cashmere (both est. 2012). All of the above defer in seniority to venerable establishments to the north, Methow Valley Brewing Co. in Twisp (est. 1998) and Old Schoolhouse Brewery in Winthrop (est. 2008).

Waterville Tiny town, big events


uaint might describe this Douglas County town. Historic fits, too. It’s also a gateway to some wide open wheat country. Founded in 1889, this town now boasts a population of 1,145. There are more folks out in the hinterlands, where photographers like to bounce around on rutted roads to take pictures of old barns and farmhouses. Places to visit in town include the Waterville Historic Hotel, Douglas County Courthouse and Douglas County Museum. The biggest show of the year is the North Central Washington District Fair and Rodeo, which books in top-notch country music acts that attract big crowds. It runs from Aug. 21-24 at the fairgrounds (douglas The lower-key Waterville Days are set for July 11-12. (water

Big scenes Waterville can also be a base for exploring the sweeping, wheat-covered Waterville Plateau. Drive north and see “erratics,” epic-sized boulders dropped by a retreating ice sheet long, long ago. There’s a particularly striking collection of the giants along the modern highway to Chelan down McNeil Canyon Road. Just south of town is the Badger Mountain Ski Area, a family friendly place where a day of gentle skiing will cost you just $10. Drive east on Highway 2 to

tiny Douglas and lovely, gleaming St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and then through Moses Coulee where you the Nature Conservancy studies bats on its Moses Coulee/Beezley Hills Preserve. Under, big, big skies, head east to Dry Falls State Park and its dramatic overlook and smart visitors center. Turn right and head south on Highway 17 and take in the beautiful, dramatic drive on the edge of the Chain Lakes, south to Soap Lake. Turn left and head north about 30 miles to Grand Coulee Dam.

Trickle-down attraction You want superlatives? Dry Falls gushes superlatives. The longest, the tallest, the fastest

and now — about 15,000 years after its last dribble — the driest. The 400-foot-high, 3.5-mile-long basalt precipice just south of Coulee City is the former lip of what’s touted as the world’s biggest known waterfall. (Ten times the size of wimpy Niagara.) When glacial dams crumbled to release massive Ice Age floods through the Columbia Basin, deep rivers of water coursed 65 mph over Dry Falls’ scalloped edge and raced south to carve the Channeled Scablands. Today’s visitors can inch to the end of a short but thrilling overlook and visit the interpretive center to learn about cataclysmic flooding and oozing magma. Which reminds us: Restrooms are available.

There’s a new population sprouting up in downtown Cashmere — a population of scarecrows in a contest hosted by the Cashmere Chamber of Commerce. Jerry Vey, Plain, was visiting in town and stopped off for coffee at Weed’s Cafe. Bottom left: Leaves fall from trees in Cashmere as a slight breeze begins to blow through the valley.


Smack dab in the middle of the state


ashmere is the absolute dead center of Washington state, so it’s no wonder that everything else seems spin around this picture postcard town that oozes with colonialthemed charm. Cashmere has become a hot spot for river rafters, bike riders, wine tasters, banjo pluckers and antique addicts in recent years. More than 20 raft companies and schools of kayakers float the Wenatchee River whitewater to Cashmere each spring and early summer. Mountain bikers know the canyons outside of town as some of the best trails in the Northwest. With two antique malls and other vintage shops in town, antique hunters will want to stick around a good while. There’s plenty of good eats to choose from: two-napkin burgers at the 59er Diner, trule fries and micro-brews at Mile Post 111, great barbecue at Country Boys; there’s Mexican and Asian dining. Looking for something really exotic? How about venison chops or really fresh oysters and seafood at The Hideaway. The town is home to some of region’s biggest family events,

Small shops, mostly wine tasting rooms, line a hallway at the Mission District in Cashmere on Mission Avenue.

Crispy snack Foodles, the Mickey Mouse-shaped snack tray made by Cashmere-based Crunch Pak, is the poster child for the Walt Disney Co.’s new push to improve kids diets. The Disneythemed snacks have captured a huge slice of the fruit snack market.

Sweet perfection You Ap addicts and Cot hogs can’t hide, not with that powdered sugar dusting your lips. But don’t be ashamed. We’re all sweet on Liberty Orchards’ confectionary concoction, Aplets and Cotlets — arguably the best use of local fruit since cavemen squeezed the first cider. Those cubed candies taste even better after the Cashmere company’s complimentary kitchen tour. It’s an intense exercise in delayed gratification as yummy delights tempt from just an arm’s length away. Warning: The posttour dash to the freebie Aps and Cots can be fierce. Use an elbow to wedge past old ladies and a lunge to reach over kids for a successful grab of those gratifying goodies.

Wet and wild Of all the public swimming facilities in the Wenatchee Valley, the Cashmere City Pool comes closest to a get-wet wonderland. Just ask the thousands of splashers who visit the semi-waterpark every summer for its cool, zero-edge wading pool, slick waterslide and mushroom showersquirter thingies. Sure, the 6,000 square-foot swimming area can get a bit crowded, but trained lifeguards help tone down the aquatic antics without being complete wet blankets. And there’s a grassy, shaded area for sun-shunning freckled redheads and picnicking grandmas. Years ago, city fathers (wading in their boardshorts, no doubt) declared the pool had a “high fun factor.” They weren’t just blowing bubbles.

Sydney McLeod, Cashmere, kisses her goose Albert while waiting for the judging to begin in the 4-H poultry division of the Chelan County Fair. She says she is able to raise tame animals because she lets them stay in her house with her for the first month. “When you get them really young, they’ll think you’re their parents,” she explains.

Between 75,000 and 90,000 people visit the Bavarian village during the festival, which stretches over three weekends each year.

NCW’s winter wonderland


eavenworth is the Pacific Northwest’s Bavarian playground. Hundreds of thousands of visitors come every year — in every season — for fun and unusual shops, restaurants, festivals. And it’s all surrounded by the gorgeous Cascade Mountains. Hike, picnic, ski and rock climb. There’s wine, fine dining, fast food, live theater and golf. Take in a performance at the bandstand, grab some ice cream and stretch out in the grass near the maypole.

Quick trips Head east on Highway 2 toward Wenatchee and you’re in fruit stand and winery country. Peshastin’s Smallwood’s is a must stop for cars with kids. They have a petting zoo, lots of room to run and a tasty fruit stand and gift shop. Prey’s fruit

stand is also nearby on Highway 2. Head west on Highway 2 and take in the Wenatchee River as it roars through Tumwater Canyon. The dam on the river is a good spot to see leaping salmon as they head upstream toward Lake Wenatchee. Or just keep going to the lake. Lake Wenatchee State Park gives you a great picnic spot on a pictureperfect lake. Head south along Icicle Creek toward the Alpine Lakes Wilderness. Stop at the Leavenworth National Fish Hatchery. The hatchery ofers tours, fish and wildlife viewing and picnic grounds. It releases 1.6 million salmon every year to make the 500-mile journey to the Pacific Ocean. Open year-round. (509) 548-7641. The path to the hatchery’s dam on Icicle Creek also leads to some easy trails suitable for hikers of all ages.

A white-headed woodpecker hangs onto a pine tree in the Chumstick Canyon just outside of Leavenworth.

Nut cases The home of everything nutty — from an 800,000-year history of nuts to 6,000 actual nutcrackers to TV star Arlene Wagner, the Nutcracker Lady herself — seems to have come out of its shell in recent years as media worldwide went nuts over nutcrackers. Downtown Leavenworth’s Nutcracker Museum has been featured on network television, the Conan O’Brien late-night show and newspapers across the U.S. and Europe. It also spiced the high-energy viral video that featured dapper nutcracker Woody Goomsba flirting with sexy Bavarian babes flashing their dirndls. Best of all, the Nutcracker Museum is all it’s cracked up to be — informative (top five ways to crack a nut), mesmerizing (rooms lined with ’crackers) and kitschy (nuts squeezed in gator jaws). Visit soon. You’d be nuts to miss it.

It’s a hoot The petting farm at Smallwood’s Harvest in Peshastin is definitely all it’s quacked up to be. You and the kids’ll cluck over the 14 different kinds of

animals — pigs, goats, rabbits, sheep, donkeys, ponies, ducks, geese and more — and coo at the farm’s easy critter access. Don’t snort, all you so-called grownups; this roadside, openair, backyard farmyard really is something you’ll cackle about and maybe even tweet your friends. It’s open all winter, so plan now to sometime warm your hands in exhaled donkey breath. Best of all? Petting is cheep-cheep: just one buck. Find Smallwood’s just off Highway 2 at 10461 Stemm Road. For info, call 548-4196 or visit

Icy art Ablaze from the sun or glowing in moonlight, the ah!inspiring Chihuly Icicles at Leavenworth’s Sleeping Lady Resort gleams like, well, real ice shards. Formally known as the Icicle Creek Chandelier, the 1,200-piece outdoor installation by one of the world´s top glass artists stands just outside the Sleeping Lady Chapel. Dale Chihuly and his team of glassblowers assembled the 12-foot-high masterwork during the 1996

holiday season after shaping the crystalline icicles in, appropriately, below-zero temperatures and frequent snowstorms. Chihuly called on engineers, welders, rock drillers, a solar consultant, a geologist and a forester to help give the project maximum impact. It worked.

Take a hike or two ◆ Icicle Gorge Trail, near

Leavenworth: Easy and easily accessible, great for families. Mostly flat, 4-mile trail loops around Icicle Creek, crossing at the scenic Icicle Gorge. About 16 miles up Icicle Road from Leavenworth. ◆ Penstock Pipeline Trail, near Leavenworth: An easy hike with an unusual start over an historic bridge. You can sometimes see Coho salmon spawning in the Wenatchee River from this old bridge that once carried water to generate electricity for the Great Northern Railroad. The railroad ran through Tumwater Canyon until 1929. The 3-mile back-and-forth hike offers great views and fabulous fall colors along the

river, and access to some good beaches if the weather is still hot enough for a dip. No pass is required at the small parking lot, about 1.5 miles west of Leavenworth on Highway 2.

Pooch power If there’s a downside to dogsledding, it’s staring at the bouncing butts of barking huskies or malamutes for an hour or two. Not a deal-breaker, though, because everything else about the ride is exhilarating. Bright sun, deep powder, bracing breeze, winter vistas and the North Country tradition of canine conveyance add up for many to be the ride of their lives. Plus, whether you’re a passenger tucked warmly in the sled basket or a musher riding the back-end footboards, you can feel the pulse of pooch power as the entire cool contraption — dogs, sled, people — flies low over snow. These two businesses can arrange a dogsledding experience — Lake Wenatchee Sled Dog Tours, 6306782, and Leavenworth Dogsled Adventures, 630-0456.

Hikers walk along the Lakeshore Trail on Lake Chelan near Prince Creek. At left, the swimming area at Lake Chelan State Park.

Lake Chelan Take a dip in one of the clearest lakes in North America


elcome to Lake Chelan! This pristine glacier-fed lake is skirted by friendly communities boasting everything from quality hotels, restaurants, shops, casino and wineries to boating, fishing, beaches and wilderness adventure. Whether you’re looking to

explore, or just hang out and relax, this is a great place to do it, year round. The lake is a sparkling blue treasure. Just over 50 miles long with depths of up to 1,500 feet, it’s the third-deepest in North America and one of the clearest. In fact, Native Americans called it “Tsill-anne” — “deep water.” The city of Chelan anchors the lake along its south shore. Its Ruby Theatre, which dates to 1914, is one of the state’s oldest movie spots and still boasts first-run showings. Its oldest building, St. Andrews Episcopal Church, is home to weekly

services. The region is known for its wines. In 2009 its unique growing conditions were recognized as an oicial, American Viticultural Area. Wineries and fruit stands are enticing stops around the lake. The city’s riverside park invites a stroll and hosts seasonal open-air concerts and events. Mill Bay Casino in Manson has slot machines, card and table games, a summer series of big-name concerts, dancing, dining and live music (Check for concert listings.)

Hikers walk to the dock at Lucerne to meet the Lady of the Lake II after hiking near Domke Lake.

Riding a water slide at Slidewaters in Chelan. The wooden structure, complete with captain’s wheel, was restored and mounted in 2008 to overlook the Chelan River at the foot of the lake near the Riverwalk Pavilion.

Bay watch Few summertime treats are more refreshing than leaping from Manson Bay Park’s swimming dock into the cold, clear waters of Lake Chelan. In truth, the relatively still bay waters are warmer than you’d expect and utterly irresistible. The lake’s only oicial lifeguards keep everyone safe and sane.

Lazy River runs through it People ride the Lady of the Lake II up lake on Lake Chelan.

In the wheelhouse Smart placement of the pilot house from the original Lady of

the Lake means you wannabe swabbies can squint-n-conjure powering through Lake Chelan’s westerly chop in the 1940s.

The 60-year-old, 65-foot-long Lady was salvaged in 2001, but wisdom prevailed and the pilot house was saved.

Chelan’s Slidewaters is loaded with slides, 500-feet of Lazy River, spray features, great views and picnic areas that all make it a good place for families to play all day. See more at slidewaterswater

Rainbow Falls is a scenic spot and popular stop for the National Park bus that drives up from the Stehekin landing. World photos/Don Seabrook

A group of rafters heads down the Stehekin River past wild flowers from the Stehekin Ranch to Lake Chelan.


f you could drive to Stehekin — and you can’t — it would take you an hour just to get there. Think about that as you ride the ferry 55 miles to the far end of Lake Chelan, one of the deepest, cleanest lakes on the planet. Stehekin — a community of about 100 lucky year-round residents — is surrounded by the tall timber, rock and water

of North Cascades National Park. The community gets its name from the Indian word meaning “the way through.” But you’ll find it’s a good place to stay, too. There’s lodging, food, fishing, boating, hiking and lots of relaxing. Catch a ferry ride with the Lake Chelan Boat Co. — (509) 6824584.

Swing away Beautiful scenery makes golf in NCW a hole-in-one


ark k Twain i once said, id “Golf is a good walk spoiled.” But what better way to take that walk — in a park-like setting overlooking spectacular, picturesque scenes. Take away the bad shots and bad scores of your golf game and there’s nothing quite as beautiful an experience as walking the green fairways of a well-manicured golf course along a great view. Courses are designed to show

off magnificent scenery, a way to bring back a golfer who maybe hasn’t had a very good experience on the course with the sport but would love to come back to take another look at a pretty lake, a unique view of the Columbia River or a forested ridge. North Central Washington has no shortage of these great views and here are several local holes that make the most of their locations. So lace up those FootJoys, clean out the grooves of your TaylorMades, get out a sleeve of Titlests and head for the nearest, greatest course for some eye candy — and a good walk worth walking.

Okanogan Valley

The wild, wild west of Washington


f you’re ’ looking l ki for f a place l where the West is still wild, come to Okanogan County. It’s the largest county in Washington. But with just eight people per square mile, you can stick to the back roads, enjoy the wide open spaces and see more wildlife and farm animals than people. If you’re up for a little wild-west action, don’t miss the Omak Stampede and World Famous Suicide Race, featuring a world-class rodeo and a unique American Indian horse race, along with tribal dancing and drumming competitions. It’s four days long, always the second weekend in August, Aug. 7-10 this year.

Okanogan This is where you’ll find a community so enthralled with history, locals fought to keep the iconic county courthouse and raised money to put clocks in its tower instead of tearing it down to erect a modern structure. The historical society also erected billboards all over town featuring photographs of turn-of-thecentury pioneers and American Indians in their day-today lives. Frank Matsura, a Japanese immigrant, captured these images more than a century ago. The Okanogan County Historical Museum

has hundreds more early photos, along with a building full of historical displays. It’s open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. beginning Memorial Day.

Molson If you enjoyed Okanogan, you’ll definitely want to venture north to tiny Molson. Don’t expect to find any businesses to accommodate you. But an outdoor ghost town museum and school house are open every day in the summer from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. And if you’re in the area on July 4, you’ll want to keep heading east to Chesaw, where

Tonasket is the hub of northern Okanogan County. The summer’s events kick off with an annual Founders Day Parade on May 30. Then, between the town’s chamber of commerce and its Community Cultural Center, events ranging from a tractor pull to community dinners and an annual garlic festival are scheduled nearly every weekend. To the east, the barter fair is held every fall, along with a newly emerging Conscious

Tonasket A true border town, Oroville seems to draw as many Canadians as it does Americans who come to enjoy wine tasting, antiquing and shopping. But Lake Osoyoos, known on both sides of the border for its warm waters, is probably the biggest draw.

Conconully Talk about fishing, this town lives for it. It’s another small town, but this one’s got two big lakes, or technically reservoirs, bordering it. Conconully hosts a trout derby on April 26, and a fly fishing rendezvous on June 14. And every other day that it’s legal, you’ll find people in boats and on the shorelines trying for rainbow trout, smallmouth bass, and even some kokanee in the lower lake. The calendar at is also filled with other fun and unique events that may just draw you back for their most unusual, the annual outhouse races in January. It may sound like a hoot, but these folks are so serious about it, they’ll even haul in snow if

there’s not enough to cover main street.

Welcome to Pateros At the Confluence of the Columbia & Methow Rivers

Brewster and Pateros These two towns on the Columbia River cater to a fishermen looking for a special catch — salmon. Some gather up near Brewster until they’re ready to head up the Okanogan River. And steelheaders flock to Pateros for this specialty before they hit the Methow River. The two towns also have special festivals. In Brewster it’s the Fourth of July that includes a parade and fireworks on the Columbia. And in Pateros it’s the Apple Pie Jamboree held on the third weekend of July. And if you’re in the area, it’s worth venturing to the newly reopened Fort Okanogan Interpretive Center, just north of Brewster. Built in 1911, this first American fur trading outpost in Washington state has been given back to the Colville Tribes, who redid many of the displays to offer more insight from a tribal perspective. It’s open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. from

Methow Valley Artistic towns surrounded by region’s beauty


inthrop’s wooden sidewalks, hitching posts and false storefronts, and Twisp’s multitude of arts, music and theater events may be what put these two Methow Valley towns on the map. But the surrounding mountain peaks, national forestland, and miles of trails are keeping them there. People traveling to the valley for the first time over the North Cas-

cades Highway have compared its spectacular views to those of the Alps. Open for 42 years now, the highway closes each winter due to heavy snow and avalanches.

Carlton Those who travel up the valley from Pateros on Highway 153 will come through Carlton, and pass Lookout Mountain to the west, home of the first confirmed wolf pack in the state in 70 years. If you stop by the recently-renovated Carlton Store, they may have a tale or two to tell about sightings in this quaint, unincorporated town.

providing electricity to 11 Western states, with a total generating capacity of 6,809 megawatts. It is one of the top 10 largest producers of electricity in the world. And it’s the largest concrete structure in North America. Free tours of the Third Powerplant begin in the spring and continue until fall. The tours — it’s first-come, first-served — last about an hour. Tour times are April 1 through May 24 at 10 a.m., 12 noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.; May 25 through Sept. 12 at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 12

Laser Light Show The best spot to watch the laser light show is at the Visitor Center, with bleachers and a full sound system. A park area below the dam, Crown Point Vista, Mason City Park and Coulee Dam parks are also great places to view the 36-minute show, which tells the story of the Columbia River and the building of the dam. Visitors in areas without speakers can hear the narration on 90.1 FM radio. The Visitor Center is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, with extended hours from Memorial Day through the end of September.

Rocky Reach Dam Rocky Reach Dam, seven miles north of Wenatchee right off Highway 97A, is a publicly-owned dam operated by the Chelan County PUD. This is a must-see stop. What’s that long, long tube that runs from across the downstream side of the dam? It’s a juvenile fish bypass system that shoots baby salmon past the dam’s 11 generating units (1,300 megawatts capacity) and then dramatically drops them on their way into the river. The Visitor Center at Rocky Reach Dam, open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 1 until

late October, offers movies and exhibits on dam construction, history, American Indian culture and a look back at life along the Columbia. Balconies provide views of the dam, fish ladder and the Columbia River. The popular fishviewing room allows visitors to watch adult salmon, steelhead, trout and other species on their upstream migration to spawning areas. You’ll find flower gardens, picnic shelters, an arboretum, restrooms and a playground at Rocky Reach Park. Grab a brochure and map and stretch your legs on a walking tour (one to two hours). It starts and ends at the Visitor Center parking lot. The park is open daily from March 1 to late October. Info: (509) 663-7522, chelan or

95 And if that doesn’t work, you can wallow like one happy hog in its therapeutic (if stinky) mud — touted for centuries as a cure-all by Native Americans and today by immigrant Ukrainians who claim the tar-like stuff eases arthritis and psoriasis. These healing properties harken back to Soap Lake’s heyday as a well-known resort and health spa in the early 1900s. What’s known for sure is that this meromictic (multi-layered) soda lake contains large quantities of 23 dissolved minerals — i.e., sodium, potassium, magnesium — and, hey, you float like a cork. A stinky cork.

of the state’s most popular rock-climbing sites, stands just west of George near the rim of Frenchman Coulee — a wide, high-walled gouge scoured clean by ancient floods. This breathtaking combination — columns thrusting skyward, basalt cliffs zig-zagging into deep canyon — has to be one of Eastern Washington’s grandest sights. Whew. Make that dizzying sights.

Man cave Squat inside one of the Lake

Lenore Caves, grunt like a caveman and pretend to gnaw some baby-back mammoth ribs — feels kinda like home, huh? Scientists who know this stuff say prehistoric man (and a few of his girlfriends) did indeed use the caves, located north of Soap Lake above Highway 17, as a home base from which to roam Central Washington’s vast volcanic landscape. No iTunes or Netflix, so what else you gonna do? The caves formed when Ice Age floods, racing

down from Dry Falls, plucked basalt chunks out of the cliffs to carve out a little piece of heaven with cross-valley views. Visitors still camp at the site, as proven by a fire ring, empty beer cans and discarded chicken buckets. Yep, just like home.

In a lather It’s sudsy and tastes awful but, if you can trust the hype, adding Soap Lake’s mineralrich water to your bath and diet will cure what ails ya.

Outdoorsy folks exploring Ancient Lakes love the contrast of the area’s basalt cliffs and deep blue fishing lakes. Snow can be scarce here, so winter’s often short and the recreation season long. Lakes fill with melting ice runoff and seeping irrigation water. Very primal, the timeworn trails lead hikers and horsemen back through the ages, through millennia of geologic and archeologic history, through a majestic tableau of volcanic buttes, ice-carved waterways and sun-seared skies. And — get this — it’s only 17 minutes (10.2 miles) to the McDonald’s in Quincy, where you can gargle away antediluvian dust with a swig of McCafé Iced Caramel Mocha. Ain’t geology grand?

The Cascade Loop Take an adventure around some of the most scenic parts of Washington state


f you’re looking for a fall weekend or longer vacation destination that combines natural beauty, luscious libation, great food, endless activities and fascinating people, you don’t have to look far. The Cascade Loop lassos some of the most scenic and uniquely agrarian landscapes in the country. The loop encompasses Lake Chelan, the Methow Valley, North Cascades National Park, Whidbey Island and Highway 2 over Stevens Pass and back to Leavenworth and Wenatchee. You can start anywhere and make the entire circle and take it one piece at a time. Weather can change quickly in the North Cascades during the fall, so check the forecast before you set out. The best source of info on the Loop is the Cascade Loop Association at

Manson The little uplake village is busy with sun and water-worshipping tourists in the summer, but things begin to slow down by October. Apple and winegrape harvests are underway in September and October and the trees and vines are beginning to change color. The lower rim of the lake is home to nearly 20 excellent wineries. Close to Manson, look for Benson Vineyards Estate, Lake Chelan Winery, Hard Row to Hoe Vineyards, Cairdeas Winery, The Blending Room, Tildio Winery and others. With so many wineries and

t trendy new restaurants to choose from, it’s no wonder c the Lake Chelan area is already th being called Washington’s b ““new Napa.”

Pateros Gas up, chat with the fishermen who pull huge King e salmon out of the Columbia River at its confluence with the Methow River. A bakery stop at the Sweet Rivers Bakery is mandatory. The Rivers Restaurant grills some of the best steaks served in North Central Washington.

Methow Valley The drive up Highway 153 along the winding Methow River is a trip back in time. The mountain-cradled valley’s rolling pastures — antique farm equipment left where it stopped, dilapidated barns, grazing livestock — will have you dreaming of simpler, quieter times.
