Lake Chelan In Winter

Lake Chelan In Winter

The last time I was in Lake Chelan was over a year ago. Ann and I had taken the ferry from there to Stehekin. Her son-in-law had also taken us for a boat ride out on the lake one day. While the lake has not frozen over, I was quite content to just gaze out at the water at this time of the year.

Winterfest began on Friday and ended on Monday, the day I was there. As I strolled through the downtown area, I enjoyed viewing the ice sculptures. With the unusually warm temperatures and the sunshine, the ice was actually beginning to melt.

I was also pleasantly surprised that there was no snow on the ground, although we had passed by snow along the highway on the way up. I guess Leavenworth has enough snow for all of us this year.

It was nice to venture out on a day trip again. I hope that the weather cooperates as I’m already contemplating another day trip, this time to Waterville.
