The "Fruit Capital of Western North America" stretches from Canada's border to Oregon's border.  The Okanogan Valley   in the north (which starts as the Okanagan Valley in Canada) flows to the Wenatchee Valley south of it.  Orchard fruits include pears, peaches, nectarines, apples, cherries, and grapes; but there also exists wildlife, fish and forestry to make this area a very "fruitful" travel experience. 
     The Okanogan River, Entiat River, and Wenatchee River all flow into the Columbia River providing good transportation for fruits from this area.  These rivers are the lifeblood to little cities like Pateros and Chelan Falls that developed on the rivers' banks.
