Hello. We're going to be based in Bellingham (Sudden Valley) for three weeks in September. We'll cover a lot of local ground but would also like to try a few extended car tours - maybe just day trips, maybe longer trips with overnight stops. Our priorities will be scenery, wildlife and short hikes (up to about 6 miles). We'd welcome any recommendations.
I believe the Cascade Loop is a good bet. Where would you stop for the night? We thought perhaps somewhere near Chelan, based purely on studying a map.
Thanks for any ideas.
