Wenatchee River Valley

by Pete O'Cain, Wenatchee World

CASHMERE — The Chelan-Douglas Land Trust has helped save more than 2,000 acres in Hay and Nahahum Canyon near Cashmere for public use.

In just a few weeks, the Wenatchee Valley will celebrate what has become an unofficial holiday around here: The opening of the Wenatchee Foothills Trails on April 1.

Cashmere Canyons Preserve is a stunning landscape of expansive views, carpets of wildflowers, and sweeping views from the Columbia River to the high Cascades.
