Lake Wenatchee

Hey everyone! Here’s one more picture this week to send you off on your weekend. Or, here’s Friday’s picture to welcome you to your Monday morning. Whichever, it’s all the same to me. You’re looking at Lake Wenatchee, which is on the eastern side of the Cascades, a little bit north of Highway 2, a little bit west of Leavenworth, and a little bit east of Stevens Pass. It’s actually quite a large lake, but here you’re looking at the part where it squeezes down and turns into the drainage river. If you follow it forward, it opens up to the right around the little point that you see there right in the center.

Blah, blah blah, whatever. Look! Pretty! To get here, you have to park in the parking lot at Lake Wenatchee State Park, and buy a sno-park pass. It’s the more expensive pass too, because they also have groomed Nordic skiing here. They don’t actually care if you’re skiing or not, the fact that the groomed trails are there (which you’re not allowed to snowshoe on, for what it’s worth) means you need to buy the more expensive pass. Lame. Sigh. Anyway, go enjoy your weekend!

Notes: Canon EOS Rebel T1i, Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 lens. 1/250s, f/9.0, ISO 100. Focal length: 17mm.
