Stehekin, Washington probably ranks as my #1 vacation spot of all time. There are no roads to Stehekin. You either hike in, or take a 4-hour ferry ride up Lake Chelan (2 hours on the fast boat). It's remote, quiet, and rugged. I loved that it lacked the 'touristy' aspects of vacation destinations - overpriced souvenirs, travel-worn hotel rooms, crowds. No crowds in Stehekin, unless you count the wildlife.

It was in Stehekin where I first started writing BINGO SUMMER, my debut middle-grade novel.
