Solid A- for me. It would get an even A if minimums were a little lower in the winter, and a little warmer in the summer. And an A+ if summer record lows were out of the 30s. Other than that, this one looks fantastic to me. 4 real seasons, looks like a lot of snow in the winter, and a lot of hot, dry days in the summer. Add to the fact that it's located right on a lake (the largest lake in Washington, at that!) and I'm sold! (Also really like how small and remote this village is, accessible only by boat or private plane, but that is beside the climate! lol).

C/C-
Looks very cloudy outside of Jul/Aug/Sep. Winters look downright dreary.
Winters are also colder and wetter than I'd like.
Summers look nice but a little too dry for my tastes. I could see most of the vegetation going brown by July. Summer temperatures look comfortable, though.

B

Not bad at all. Sufficiently cold and snowy winters and summers are comfortable.

Stehekin is only accessible by a rather pricey 50 mile boat ride. Community has less than 50 people and has no landline or mobile phone service (only satellite). Summers feel hot and dry...But the high annual precipitation keeps it rather green. Judging from the summers, I thought it'd be a great climate, but the winters are almost as cold as where I live and much cloudier.

Setting is super peaceful, beautiful and remote; surrounded by tall mountains.

some photos...

Wonderful photos thanks for sharing!

Stehekin is one of the few places in this state I haven't been to, but would really LOVE to visit for a few days or a week or two or more. Been to Chelan a few times, but never Stehekin.

BTW they DO have land line service now, I believe.

Stehekin is a hidden gem. Great campgrounds, too. Large black bear population (saw one, and was told there was one wandering next to my campsite while I saw away. Someone should me a photo of it sniffing my tent) Met someone else who had seen a mountain lion...

There wasn't land line service when I was there this August. I couldn't get the satellite phone to work, but I didn't try very hard.

Wow very nice climate for Washington. A solid B. It doesn't get an A only because of the dry summers.

Btw these are beautiful photos!
