Lake Chelan 2012 — photo 34 of 38: The Twenty-File Mile Creek area, which marks the end of road access to the lower one-third of Lake Chelan. For the upper two-thirds of the lake, access is only by boat, plane, hoof or foot! As viewed from the Lady of the Lake, about 18 miles from Chelan. If you compare this shot to the similar one I took three days earlier, the amount of smoke in the air from forest fires had greatly increased. September 2012. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
