Continuing the story of my artist residency in the North Cascades.
The Buckner Orchard was no longer in business, but this old truck remained.
Lake Chelan is a natural lake, but a dam was built in 1927 to raise the water level. During winter the water level is lowered, to make room for spring snow melt without flooding. As the lake is lowered, the river bed is exposed and dries, dust gets raised whenever the wind blows. After I left they did have some flooding.
Dust from the exposed, dry river bed get blown around as the bed dries out during spring.
Although I didn’t work closely with the National Park staff, they did invite me over to lunch one day. The park supplied me with a bike and when they weren’t using it, which was most of the time, a small pickup, which was tremendously helpful.
This image is typical of the landscape in the North Cascades.
