And we need to reconnect with each other. Here are four extraordinary places in Washington state to go this fall that provide opportunities for respite and reconnection.”

High Camp to Leavenworth Ski »

Big Lou (left) and Icicle ridge

Is it possible to ski from High Camp to Leavenworth to grab a beer? Yes, yes it is.  I’ve dreamed of traveling from High Camp to Leavenworth for years either by foot or ski and last week I finally made that trip a reality.

High Camp Happenings

Schools and Scottish Lakes »

Catlin Gable School

We have had the privilege this year of hosting 3 different schools at Scottish Lakes. These schools are not new to High Camp, they all have brought students before. They come back because the kids absolutely love it. Comments sent back in thank you notes read:

“Thank you for your hospitality, warm words, and amazing trails. I wish I had more time to explore, but at least I made it to High Point.”

“I had a blast skiing all around, playing in the snow and just hanging out in paradise. It was a great week!”

“Shredding the powder down was so dope!”

“Hiking to and skiing down from High Point was truly a life changing experience.”

Upper Wenatche Community Lands Plan Map

Chelan County, the Chelan Douglas Land Trust, and the Trust for Public Land is hosting a meeting on Saturday, April 11th at 10:00 am for local residents of the Upper Wenatchee Watershed at the Lake Wenatchee Recreation Club to discuss forest land management priorities in the Nason Creek watershed. The catalyst for this effort is the potential transition of about 38,000 acres of forested land recently sold by Longview Fibre to Weyerhaeuser. Much of the forested land is adjacent to Forest Service lands.  The reason this meeting is of interest to me is that they are looking at Weyerhaeuser Land and specifically the land upon which Scottish Lakes High Camp is located. I think this has some interesting potential for the High Camp Community. The topics for discussion include:

  • What do you value most about area lands and waters?
  • What are the biggest threats to those values?
  • Are there specific places that are most important to you and your community?
  • How can land use and management affect your community, both positively and negatively?

I plan to attend this meeting and hope that local residents will be there also. In addition, I am interested in feedback from the High Camp Community on the above questions…even though they may not be locals. Please email me with input to : I would appreciate the broader perspective it would provide me when I attend this meeting. As always I thank the High Camp Community for their love and support of Scottish Lakes!

Bill and Peg Stark

In October of 2005 we had a little celebration honoring the history of High Camp. Bill and Peg Stark were invited, but unable to attend. When she learned about it, Peg was inspired to write us a letter letting us know a little more about how Bill and Peg found the location for Scottish Lakes High Camp. Here is a portion of that letter.
