Thanks for the great info, guys.
- We drove through Lake Wenatchee last year, sorta by accident. We were driving into Leavenworth from the east when we got stopped dead in a Bavarian-themed traffic jam. I noticed a route on my GPS heading north, so a quick right and we were on our way. Beautiful area, and a nice drive up through the small community of Plain. I believe there were a few open sites at the state park, but it was absolutely pouring, so we let the dog out for a quick swim and pushed on to a rest area on I5 north of Everett. I'd love to go back to Lake Wenatchee to explore more of the back roads.
We've also driven 97 from Cle Elum up to Leavenworth in the past, and agree there would be many places to boondock. And have been into Roslyn (aka Cicely, AK - wife was a big fan) quite a few times.
I hear ya about I90 traffic. We'll be heading down Thursday night/Friday morning, so hopefully we can beat the long weekend traffic. And heading back via the northern route (Route 20).
Anyway, I think we want to be farther north on Sunday night, so will save Lake Wenatchee for another trip.
- I remember you writing about the area north and east of Winthrop in the past, and I spent a few hours last night on Google Earth exploring that area. Both Blue Lake and Fish Lake look promising. However, I think being that far north and east of Route 20 will add a few hours to our drive on Monday. For various reasons, I don't want to cross over into BC that far east (at Nighthawk/Oroville). I think we’re going to aim for somewhere in the Methow Valley, maybe the state park at Alta Lake.
Anyone been to Sun Lake State Park/Dry Falls recently, near Coulee City? Any tips on a quiet spot to sit by the lake? Thinking of heading up there on Saturday. I know Railbat’s been in there
, but his trip report and photos are no longer available.
Thanks again, and have a great long weekend everyone.
