Beautiful, Breathtaking Echo Ridge Trail
My phone can’t get a signal. I can’t receive calls. But, the view is breathtaking from up here.
A cloud of dust trailed our SUV as we drove along Echo Ridge. The gravel road wound up, down and around the mountain, affording us beautiful views of Lake Chelan. What was supposed to be a quick photography scouting trip, quickly turned into a fun impromptu family hike. By the time we pulled into the trailhead parking lot, we couldn’t wait to jump out and explore the trails.
We set off on an easy trail, guided by nothing more than our curiosity and appreciation for nature.
Canon the Big Red Pup ran wildly through the grass and wildflowers, and busied herself with her new surroundings. Run. Stop. Sniff. Repeat.
The girls collected treasures, stopping every few feet or so to admire the flowers and pine cones that peppered the trail.
It’s peaceful up here on Echo Ridge. Beautiful. Inspiring. Uncomplicated, even. No traffic. No internet. No looming deadlines. Just me and my family connecting with nature and exploring the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
Our impromptu hiking trip proved to be a fun little family adventure. We can’t wait to escape and trade our busy days at home for more day hikes as a family at Echo Ridge this summer.
