Although we know that summer officially begins on June 20th, Memorial weekend is the kick-off for many of the summer businesses in Stehekin.
This picture makes me smile. It shows that for more than 110 years people have been getting away from their busy lives and heading to the shores of Lake Chelan. The calendar on the table lets us see the date was 1907. It can be difficult today for many people to leave their phones behind, which seems not too different from the man in the picture who apparently had to have his Saturday Evening Post!
For all of you who are going to be getting out on the lake, or coming into the Stehekin Valley, may you enjoy the getaway, the beauty and the quiet, like the couple in this picture! Maybe we'll see you up-lake. . . .
