Bicycling Along the Mighty Columbia!

Looking for someplace special to ride your bike? We were too! And we found it along the mighty Columbia River on the Apple Capital Loop Trail! Yes it did require a quick jaunt over the mountains and an overnight stay in Wenatchee – but that was half the fun!

We took a leisurely drive on Stevens Pass over the Cascades through Bigfoot Country

and the next day we were ready to roll, starting at Wenatchee Confluence Park.

The trail was a perfect 10 miles round trip with waterfront parks and sculptures dotting the west side of the river.

Under the watchful eye of a nesting Osprey!

On the east side we had solitude, lovely views of town,

and more birds, larger in number but smaller in size.

Tiny quail running across the path as fast as their feet could carry them.

As we neared the end of the loop, views of the Cascade Mountains came into focus and we were back to where we started.

That afternoon we drove back home over Blewett Pass under big sky leaving the mountains behind.

We’ll be back to take the trail further up to Rocky Reach Dam but this will do for now.
