Leaving Stehekin

On the last day at Stehekin we had just enough time to take the shuttle to the Rainbow Falls before we had to take the Lady Express back to Chelan. It was a one hour tour to the waterfalls and a stop at a one room school in Stehekin.  The weather was beautiful and a great day for our boat ride back to our car.

Rainbow Falls





One room schoolhouse for Stehekin, it was in use until recently they built a more modern schoolhouse.





















Lady Express leaving Stehekin, the skies were looking beautiful on our boat ride back to Chelan.








People riding jet skiis were having fun with the waves that were created from our Lady express boat.






































After arriving back in the city of Chelan we hopped in our rental car and took off for our next stop along the Cascade Loop in the city of Leavenworth. You can see some of my Leavenworth photos here: http://viewingnaturewitheileen.blogspot.com/2010/09/leavenworth.html

  3. Beautiful falls! I can't picture a one room school house in use today, but then I live smack in the middle of suburbia! Must have been a neat place to go to school!

  11. So beautiful up there! Your waterfall is spectacular -- your picture really makes it look like WATER -- so many pictures don't get that.

    That's hard to believe they were recently using that little school house -- it looks like something out of an old western movie! A very isolated area obviously. I love finding stuff like that. Thanks for sharing.

  20. Looks like you had gorgeous and perfect weather for the ride back. Your images bring back so many memories of boating on Lake Chelan. Yet I never made it to Rainbow Falls which looks really awesome also.

  25. How many students do they have. It looks the size of my special ESOL room, and having 6 would be a tight squeeze.

  26. What beautiful scenery you've shared...why, it was like we were in the boat with you! And the schoolhouse out in the middle of nowhere...superb.
