We got back on the highway and stopped for another short hike to Rainy Lake, just off of Rainy Pass. After the hike we headed on down to Winthrop. Rachel got a new cowboy hat so she should mosey down the street of the western town.
After Winthrop we drove to Chelan and spent a week at Wapato Point. We did very little other than relax and see a couple wineries, which was a good thing. Forest fires from the north covered the lake with a haze of smoke for most of the time. When the week was done we finished the Cascade Loop with a drive to Leavenworth and over Stevens Pass.
