Stehekin is a small village at the north end of our 50 mile long Lake Chelan.  It has 75 permanent residents and can only be reached by boat, air, horseback, or hiking.  The summers bring many visitors to this remote area who enjoy camping, fishing, and the beautiful pacific northwest.  Julie and I took our first camping trip here since 2001 and spent the night on our boat.  We camped at Weaver Point campground, about 40 miles from our house and did enjoy the trip even though we had some high winds and rough  water.  As always whenever we travel, we do meet some interesting people.  It was hot when we arrived so I jumped in to cool off.  I forgot how cold the snow runoff is and didn't stay in long at 54 degrees.  Gees! I couldn't find my boys until the next day.  Lunch at the local Pastrey company is something you gotta do while in Stehekin.  We have seen some really beautiful country while living in Europe during the last 6 years.  I believe Lake Chelan, and Stehekin  rates right up at the top of the list during the summer months here.  It's been 2 months since I've posted a blog and do need to keep the stories going.  Our blog will not be   'Phil & Julie's UK Adventure anymore but will have to be renamed.....I'm thinking about that.....
