Just outside of Chelan on the Columbia River sits a little reserve from the Department of Wildlife. The several acres are home to many different types of wildlife along with very nice walking trails, resting points, and informative signs that tell the history of the land and information about the species of animals there. Although I didn’t see everything I saw trout and other fish in the stream, birds, and vast landscapes. Read More
Wild Horse Solar & Wind Facility
This is a real cool place to visit. It is free and there are many displays and information in the visitor center. There is also a tour (we didn’t do it) where you can walk the field around the visitor center and tour an actual turbine. This is also a wildlife sanctuary (so to speak). Just driving into the property we saw a herd of elk and deer. We didn’t get a great shot of the elk because we were so far away. I need to invest in another lens. More information about the PSE facility. Read More
I was itching for some camera time yesterday but needed easy access. Looking at my map I settled on Alpine & Deception falls. Both are right off the highway and very easy to walk to. I wish I could have taken the time to walk the trails at Deception but I didn’t want to push it. That is such a beautiful walk though. Maybe next time. I have visited both several times in the past so I was familiar with everything.
