Lake Chelan S10 and Stehekin 6S9

I've got another trip planned to Bandon on the southern Oregon coast coming up, and I'm seven hours away from an oil change so I need to fly seven hours in the next six days because I don't want to be mid-trip when my oil change is due. I've never been to Stehekin or Darrington so I attempted those destinations today. I didn't plan on landing at Stehekin, but Darrington for sure. After Darrington, my plan was to fly south to Fall City/Issaquah/North Bend and cross Snoqualmie Pass back to Yakima.

The seats. These painful seats. The air was getting bumpy and it had already been about an hour and fifteen minutes and I could already tell it would be close to a three-hour flight if I continued my planned route so at this point I turned back for Yakima.
