Postcards from Chelan: Road Trip Day 3

At the beginning of our third day I discovered a beautiful creek while walking the dogs along the lake shore. On our daily road trip we headed down the Columbia River to explore new territory. It was so pleasant to have sunshine again! The Columbia reminded me of my years living in the Tri-Cities further south. JEJ kept talking about a tunnel that he remembered, but the tunnel was never found. As we drew closer to Chelan coming back on a different route we found the tunnel he had remembered. It does look like it was just drilled through a mountain of rock. I guess it was!
It seemed like a long ride,and it was nice to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Annie kept watch to make sure we were heading back to the campground so she could watch her new best friends the squirrels. Shelby was worn out and used Annie as a pillow.

When we arrived back to the campground the evening was mild enough to have our first campfire of the year. Too cold to eat outside, but nice for a little down time after our road trip.

  1. I'm so glad you guys are having such a nice time, and JEJ is getting to visit some of the places he remembers. It's nice to get a daily account of your activities. Still snow on the ground here, but we did get sunshine today, but really cold tonight. I really want to get into the yard maybe one day and do some work, but it isn't looking very likely. We'll see!!

  2. I don't know how you are camping. My bird bath still had ice around it this morning. You're tough!

  3. It wasn't quite so cold at Lake Chelan. We were most fortunate!
