Unspoken Words

Nature speaks to us without saying a word.

Some friends have told me that they are at their most creative when they are high on drugs.  Yet, here I am not high, but I feel something in me so strong.  Unspoken words prompt my inner most being of vast emotions.

Missing pieces to my story are wrapped up in my mind in a HIGH unexplained by this world’s standards.  I was touched by the response of last week’s post.

I woke up this morning alone.  It is nothing new really.  It just hits me harder some mornings than others. Sitting up in bed, I pondered what the day had in store for me.  I had some plans, but I knew I had the capabilities to change them on a dime if I so chose to do.

Wonderful Wednesday

I had such a great response to a post I wrote about my excursion to Stehekin, Washington that is a remote village in the North Cascades, I had to share a couple of other photos. Today’s photo was taken off the pier where the boat comes into the small harbor.  You can do so many activities here.

The Lady And All Her Mysteries

Do not let this title catch you off guard!  The lady does exist as a boat and the mysteries are real. Recently on one of my many trips to eastern Washington, I went on an all day excursion on a voyage to the head of Lake Chelan.

Lake Chelan was carved out of glacial ice about 17,000 years ago.

Let me give you perspective of the mysteries of Lake Chelan.  If you stood atop of the Pyramid Peak (8245 ft), overlooking Lake Chelan, and walked three miles straight out, due east, and looked to the bottom of Lucerne Basin (386 ft below sea level), you’d be looking in the deepest gorge in North America.  Obviously this chasm is difficult to view, but no less stunning.

This campground is near Lucerne where located is the deepest gorge in North America.

In the early days of settlers to this area, dreams were similar to the Gold Rush.  These fantasies vanished  quickly though, and the Lake became more known for its intense natural beauty that brought tourists from far and wide.  Lake Chelan is not only spectacular, but pristine because no roads even to this day have been built to reach the beautiful town of Stehekin.

Looking out over the grandeur of Lake Chelan is absolutely breathtaking.

As you travel on the lady, you will see desert mountains that turn to forests.  You will also feel the weather change through the rough terrain with a drop of a hat as climate changes are felt from the lower part of Lake Chelan where one begins the journey through the hills that finally take you through the deepness of the Cascade Mountain Range.  Along the way, Mother Nature treats you to views only painted by the eyes of famous artists to the degree of the beauty that are so well deserved of this area.

The clear waters of Lake Chelan make for a majestic ride up river to the town of Stehekin.

There are also very rough patches of mountain peaks that make your jaw drop from its sheer enormity that probably can not be viewed anywhere else in the world.  This experience can be seen through my photos, but to live it is oh so much more worth it.  I hope my words put a desire in your heart to come to the Lady and see the mysteries she will bestow upon you…

To see this place in real time is amazing!

Wonderful Wednesday

It seems amazing to go through life and not enjoy the small things. Make your Wednesday wonderful by paying it forward or showing an act of kindness.  It will change you.  Photo for today taken at Lake Chelan Shores. The lake’s widest part is around this area before it narrows down.  What a site!
  

Terrific Tuesday

I have some exciting posts coming up. I am in the middle of a wine tasting vacation so writing while drinking seemed a stretch! I hope you all are doing fine. Can I just say something? I love the state of Washington where I live!  I am glad to share of its beauty with my followers  I have a set of great new photos to share, but in the meantime please see my Instagram page also under the name alesiablogs !

What happens when it is actually the new becoming the old? It can suck to age. However, I have come to embrace the new in my old.

Living my best life is my top priority today.  I am not afraid to tell you I have turned over a leaf and I am in a new chapter.
