Shugart Flats: God's Country

One of my favorite places to decompress is on our two-acre piece of recreational property located between Lake Wenatchee and Leavenworth on the eastern slope of the Cascade Range in Washington. Here is a shot of beautiful Lake Wenatchee taken by my friend Roger Wallace, retired Fire Management Officer for the Leavenworth Ranger District of the United States Forest Service.

Shugart Flats is a lovely little spot located at the junction of the Wenatchee River and Chiwawa River about 16 miles northwest of the town of Leavenworth, Washington. The site is primarily forest and meadow, with the primary species of conifers being Ponderosa pine, Douglas fir, lodgepole pine, Western red cedar and Western white pine. The deciduous trees are principally cottonwood and alder.
