Chelan, Washington state. USA

Chelan is were I live (really I live 5 miles out of town) it is a small town of about 3,000 pop. With more thousands of people living around the shoreline and adjacent hills. This lake is one of the most purist and pristine lake with a town on its shores in the USA. The lake is located on the east slopes of the majestic Cascade Mountain range of the Pacific North West, in Washington state. Lake Chelan sets at an elevation of 1,100 Ft. And is 55 miles long and about ½ mile wide and about 350 feet below sea level in depth for a total of 1,350 Ft. Deep. Its waters are so clear you can see bottom to depths of 50 or more feet and is so clean that the city takes its municipal water from the lake.

Many tourists come her in the summer time from all over the world. There is a daily boat that services the upper end of the lake for the public and brings you to a small-populated Village with minimal accommodations. The Village is not accessible by road (boat or plain or foot only) from there you can hike deep into the Cascade Mountains on many well-maintained forest trails. With in those Mountains there are many pristine mountain streams and lakes with fish, as well as large glaciers, absolutely no one lives there, no roads no houses. In the wintertime these mountains are covered with snow and some peaks have snow all year round. Some years there are hydro boat races and Hang glider contest her.
Chelan had the Woman’s World Championship hang gliders contest here one year. The weather is for the most part sunny all summer and has a High Dessert like environment with very little rain in summer time.
This region is well known for it’s fine quality Apples, Pairs and Cherries orchards and some other fruits. Fruit that is sold all over the USA as well as the large portion of world exports.
