We traveled over Highway 20 from east to west on the North Cascades Highway on our way to the city of Anacortes (north of Seattle) for a week. We pulled over at the Washington Pass Overlook and got blown away !
|The road up to where we are standing is in the bottom left.|
Down the road about 20 miles we pulled over again to the Diablo Dam Overlook...another amazing site.
|This explains why the lake is such a vibrant blue-green color.|
Going up to the Summit(s) was easy but coming down.....eeey gads! First off, we're about 33,000 pounds and we tow a Ram 1500 pickup truck behind us so we pick up speed rather quickly on the downhills. Then, every other turn was a 35 mph or 30 mph or 25 mph....which meant LOTS of braking. By the time we got done, we had spent over 5 1/2 hours to go 148 miles! Talk about exhausted.
But, it was sure a gorgeous road.....now...we get to do it in reverse in a week!
|The obligatory Cute Photo of Katie...this time in our kayak while paddling around a mountain lake. We bought her a life vest of her own...and a SPF white shirt to protect her from the sun.|
See you next entry!
