Riding through the burns / Lake Chelan
Riding through the burn areas was very cool and sobering. Lots of thoughts running through my mind in those areas.
What was it like in here when it was on fire/
How long does it take to regenerate?
Kinda glad for the burn as it provides a spectacular view. If the trees were alive and green I'd be riding in a corridor with a view of.....trees.
Burns are the natural course of things.
Getting a refreshing swim in Lake Chelan at the end of the day was prety much freakin fantastic. 'Course we coulda been camping somewhere out in the woods / on the trail. But a swim in that cool clear lake followed by a dunk in the hot tub, a great meal with no clean up and a comfy bed makes for a great finish to a great day and allows you to wake the next day fully refreshed.
