Album Notes
The focus of the northern section of the Cascade Loop audio tour guide is on the cultural heritage and traditional art forms that you’ll find along the way. We have
attempted to provide an introduction to the various ethnic community traditions you will find along SR 20, SR 153 and U.S. Route 97, such as Native American,
Croatian, Dutch, German, Hispanic, Japanese, Scandinavian, and Anglo-American; and occupational traditionssuch as fishing, boat building, crop and livestock farming, logging, mountain guiding, horse packing, fruit and wine growing. This guide is by no means comprehensive and there are undoubtedly many aspects of the local cultural heritage we have not been able to include here. We apologize for anything that may appear to have been left out or overlooked.
Our intention has been to capture some of the local narratives and music, and to give listeners a sense of the culture of the region – past and present. Some of
the people we recorded for this project come from families who have lived for up to five generations along the Cascade Loop, some who have lived here for all or
most of their adult life, and others who are relative newcomers. The audio tour begins in Anacortes and travels east along SR 20 through the Skagit Valley. You will
pass under Interstate 5 and continue east on SR 20 over the North Cascades Highway to the Methow Valley, and then head south to the towns of Winthrop and
Twisp. At the south end of Twisp, you will continue south on SR 153 to Pateros, where you will connect with U.S. Route 97. At this junction U.S. 97 travels south
along the shores of the Columbia River and then east to the town of Chelan.
