Notes: From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methow_River:

The Methow River along with its tributaries the Twisp River, Cedar Creek and Early Winters Creek, originates in a cluster of high mountains in the North Cascade range. Several mountain passes are associated with the Methow River and its tributaries including Methow Pass and Twisp Pass. State Route 20 utilizes Washington Pass and Rainy Pass, also in the general areas of Methow headwaters.

The Pacific Crest Trail follows the uppermost reach of the Methow River, until the river turns east, flowing into the Methow Valley near Mazama. Along the way, it collects the tributary streams of Robinson Creek and Lost River. In the Methow Valley, between Mazama and Winthrop, the Methow River is joined by Early Winters Creek, Cedar Creek, Goat Creek, and Wolf Creek. The Chewuch River joins at Winthrop. One of the Methow’s larger tributaries, the Chewuch River, and its many tributaries drain large parts of the Pasayten Wilderness to the north. One of its headwater streams, Cathedral Creek, reaches nearly to British Columbia, Canada.

The Methow Valley continues below Winthrop to Twisp where the Methow River is joined by another important tributary, the Twisp River. Flowing from the west the Twisp River drains the mountains south of Washington Pass as well as the eastern slopes of Sawtooth Ridge, a mountain range with notable peaks Star Peak and Mt Bigelow.

Downriver from Twisp the Methow River passes by the communities of Carlton and Methow, receiving several minor tributaries before joining the Columbia River at Pateros."
