While driving out to Okanogan County for the weekend, I decided to take what I had planned to be a brief detour at Steliko Lookout.... I had wanted to see the sunset from there. Although the road conditions were not terrible, I found my passenger car struggling to get up the steep dirt road and the tires even started to sink a few times. Several large rocks were also concerning, and with no place to turn the car around I had to take a long time backing it down the road. By the time I had backed-down the road, it was already dark.
I parked near the entrance gate at the bottom and headed up the road on foot, which took extra time I was not expecting and I only got to see the lookout building with my headlamp and my camera flash. Boring road-walk and no views, but yet another fire lookout reached.
Afterwards, I drove to Chelan for a night hike of Bear Mountain and then camped-out for a few hours at the Chelan Wal-Mart, prior to continuing north to Okanogan County and spending much of the next two days peakbagging with Klenke and Gimpilator.
