The Most Inspirational Place in the World…

26 Dec

       One of the most inspirational places in the world. The North Cascades. This is where I got the inspiration For Feather Book Series, both from a small secluded institute, the North Cascades Institute, and Stehekin, Wa. Stehekin is a small secluded community I have been traveling to since I was very small, I have four friends that were raised there, and it’s interesting to see how different their lives were from mine in Seattle. They had real wood stoves to cook on, no cars or gas, no TV. and a very small log school. The only way to get to Stehekin is by hiking in, boating the 55 miles, or flying in on the seaplane.

     The North Cascades institute is located on Diablo Lake, on Highway twenty through the North Cascades. The two places are close, but you would have to hike into Stehekin. The world out here moves slow, a world where the forests still rule, and we must succumb to their needs and desires.
       There is magic here, and I encourage you to check out my new Flickr Photo roll of pictures my family has collected over the years.

    looks dreamy. Is it warm and humid out there? or a more tempereate climate?

      Stehekin is drier than where Diablo Lake is, but the closer to the coast you get, the more humid. I know that in Chelan there is about 20% humid. and in Seattle it’s closer to 80-90%. Seattle typically sits between 40-80 degrees, and Stehekin and No. Cascades is typically -5 to 110 degrees. so there really is a big difference. Also depends on the time of year. at the institute, they get a lot of snow, and typically that pass closes for the winter. It’s so completely inhabitable, that it remains untouched.
