If you like the outdoors & want to seriously get unplugged, this should be at the top of your list. It truly is a place where rivers, creeks & a crystal clear lake flows though tall old evergreens. Truly worth the effort getting here.

A truly wild and scenic river, almost entirely untouched. Cold water, so not great for swimming, but there's fishing, rafting through the Stehekin Valley Ranch, or just wandering along and enjoying the views. It gets pretty buggy in August and September, though.
