The Robe of the Rainbow...
The Community - Wenatchee
Wenatchee is a city located in north-central Washington and is the
largest city and county seat of Chelan County, Washington. Located
at the confluence of the Columbia and Wenatchee rivers near the
eastern foothills of the Cascade Range, Wenatchee lies on the
western side of the Columbia River, across from the city of East
Wenatchee. The city was named for the nearby Wenatchi Indian tribe.
The name is a Sahaptin word that means "river which comes [or whose
source is] from canyons" or "robe of the rainbow". Awenatchela
means "people at the source [of a river]". The city of Wenatchee
shares its name with the Wenatchee River, Lake Wenatchee and the
Wenatchee National Forest.
Wenatchee is known as the "Apple Capital of the World" due to the
valley's many orchards. The city is also sometimes referred to as
the "Buckle of the Power Belt of the Great Northwest". The "Power
Belt of the Great Northwest" is a metaphor for the series of
hydroelectric dams on the Columbia River. Rock Island Dam is
located nearest to the middle of this "belt", and so was labeled
the "Buckle". This saying is printed at the top of every issue of
Wenatchee's newspaper, the Wenatchee World, and is no longer in
common use elsewhere.
