Long before State Route 20 delivered throngs of tourists to the Methow Valley, the Chancellor Road provided passage to the Okanogan. Up the deep and forbidding Canyon Creek valley, prospectors and profiteers pushed on to Harts Pass and its fields of gold and other minerals and to the boomtowns of Chancellor and Barron. But alas, most of the mines went bust along with the miners. Towns vanished and the Chancellor Road transformed into peaceful trail, traversing a once-again wild corner of the North Cascades.
