Cascade Loop Part III

Heading back the way we’d come, we decided to check out an RV park at Chelan, so we could take in the view from the hill we’d been told about.

We found a fabulous RV park, Lakeshore, a municipal park, but one of the biggest we’d ever seen, and a delightful oasis in this arid climate:

We’d recommend it for anybody.

Not sure if I mentioned it before, but there’s a quilt shop here – more on that another time.

We took that drive up the hill, known as The Butte, as had been recommended.  From below we could just barely make out the two towers that were our destination:

The sign said it was a primitive road – and they weren’t lying!

Narrow, switchbacks, wash-board, even some bare rock at times – we were amused to find out-houses at the top (Sis and Sis-in-law, we decided they were there just for when you get the chance to take this drive.)  But oh, the views when we got up there!

We’d had to park our trailer for a couple of hours until check-in time, and we looked back down at it waaaaaaaay below us:8385.Our trailer

The first pic is the approximate area of the RV park and parking lot – the second is a close-up of the trailer (it’s the one in the middle).

We continues our exploration of the area, driving around the lake to other small communities.  Climbing the Chelan Hills on the north side of the lake, we found more lovely views:106103.Views from north shore

Happy exploring!    Blessings, Peg
