During my September 2012 trip to Lake Chelan
I went for two hikes in the Stehekin
area. On my first full day there, I hiked through the Agnes Gorge.
On my second full day, I once again took the first Stehekin Valley shuttle bus
of the day up the Stehekin Valley
about five miles from Stehekin to the northern Rainbow Loop Trailhead.
Following the trail, I hiked about four-and-a-half miles, gaining and then loosing about 1,000 feet in elevation. After some hours I arrived at the southern trailhead, from which I followed the main road north to Rainbow Falls.
Mid-afternoon I caught the bus back to the lodge in Stehekin.
I have already written quite a bit about my outing that day, so I won't repeat it here. You can get all the details by checking out The Chelan Chronicles, Part III of IV.
This is the last of eight albums of images from my Lake Chelan trip. Out of the 380 pictures I took during the hike, I have selected the best 80 to be included here.
