Wenatchee, Washington

'''Wenatchee''' ( The population was 33,070 at 2014 Estimate from Office of Financial Management. Located at the confluence of the Columbia (Columbia River) and Wenatchee (Wenatchee River) 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 (East Wenatchee, Washington). The Columbia River forms the boundary between Chelan and Douglas County (Douglas County, Washington). Wenatchee is the principal city of the "Wenatchee–East Wenatchee, Washington Metropolitan Statistical Area (Wenatchee metropolitan area)", which encompasses all of Chelan and Douglas counties (total population around 110,884). However, the 'Wenatchee Valley Area' generally refers to the land between Rocky Reach (Rocky Reach Dam) and Rock Island Dam on both banks of the Columbia, which includes East Wenatchee (East Wenatchee, Washington), Rock Island (Rock Island, Washington), and Malaga (South Wenatchee, Washington).

The city was named for the nearby Wenatchi Indian tribe. The name is a Sahaptin (Sahaptin language) 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. http: ret.wenworld.com book index.php
