Wenatchee, WA: Iconic Saddlerock

Education & Training with U.S.: I specialize in helping agents who have been in the business 2 years or less create a thriving business.


"Geologists are scientists with an unnatural obsession with rocks;  Often too intelligent to do monotonous sciences like biology, chemistry, and physics." 

The rock formation Saddlerock is an iconic landmark in the Wenatchee area.  It is a popular day hike for locals and visitors alike. 

There are many amazing photos of this landmark on the internet, but I've been meaning to get one of my own for quite a while so I don't have to worry about copyright infringement for posting.  I had a spot picked out but just hadn't stopped.  Yesterday, I was on my way home from the golf course when I saw the United States flag waving at my favorite spot. I knew this was my chance.  It isn't the best picture, but it makes my point.


It is obvious from the picture above how Saddlerock got its name.  It does look like a saddle, doesn't it? 

Here is what the Washington Trails Association says about Saddlerock on their website:
"Saddle Rock is the ideal overlook trail for Wenatchee. Winding up to a summit dotted with craggy, pointed rocks, the trail follows an old road most of the way to the top.

At the end of the trail, have your camera ready; a magnificent view of the city awaits hikers who have made the push. Hikers who venture out at dusk will be rewarded by the lights of Wenatchee far below glinting into life as the city becomes dark.

This is an excellent location for folks looking to get some conditioning in during the winter months, or just wanting to stretch their legs after a long day behind a desk." 

Here is a link to what one visitor had to say about their hike up Saddlerock this Spring. Be sure to click that link because it shows the amazing view from the top!

"We invite you to choose this place; to visit, to explore or to stay."

Good morning James Dray ,
I had my worst game of the year last Thursday.  I'm hoping it was just "one of those days" and not a permanent condition.  LOL   Hope you enjoyed your day in spite of the rain.

Carol,

We both love boulders and rock formations, and CA has plenty of those.  And rocks tell stories. One of our clients has a listing in Arroyo Grande, North of us.  It is a big, big ranch.  There are rock walls full of marine fossils, and he brought us a rock of it...It is my fave present from a client...it is a piece of CA history!  A

Hi Sally K. & David L. Hanson ,
I would be interested to see a picture of the mushroom.  We have other rock formations with names here too. Maybe I'll write about them in the future.

Hi Alexandra,
Rocks do tell stories, don't they?  We have a lot of them around here.   It's hard to even grasp the history they tell.
