Just wrapped up several days of ultra-distance paddling on the lovely Lake Chelan. Typically glass smooth water in the mornings, building to a light breeze in the afternoons. Did enjoy one day of wind in the 20 mph range and a good downwind run. The lake is about 55 miles in length, and goes from a resort town to true alpine wilderness as it snakes it's way north. I would put in at the very southern end of the lake, and then paddle up-lake past the 25 Mile Creek Campground for a handful of very long, hard paddling days in the hot sun.
Very thankful for a few days to unwind from the stress of moving, and just focus on my family and preparation for Vancouver Island. Next stop Montana for some unique altitude training and a few very special paddling locations.
