Here we run on from Daily Sykes #114 and join Horace Sykes to the east side of the Columbia River to look west towards Chelan Butte. Horace may have reach this prospect with friends in a jeep. The entrance to the Chelan River Canyon is seen, in part, above the Jeep’s hood. The curve in the “old road” from which #114 was photographed is less than a mile up the river’s canyon. We will not another moutain here: Stormy Mountain. It is the highest point to the right of the Butte’s summit. Stormy reaches 7,180 feet and the Butte, 3824 feet. There are roads to both summits. The Butte is a favorite launch for hang gliders. Horace’s view dates from around 1950.
