Weatherman told us this was to be the hottest weekend of the year in Seattle. Might even hit 86 degrees! My Austrian/Italian friend Gee had his brother in town for a few days; Meet John Cap –
So the Brothers Cap, Marla and I hopped on the motorcycles and went for a ride –
We saw Mt. Rainier up close and personal –
Then we headed over Chinook Pass where we stopped for a few photos –
The diehards were telemarking down the hill –
Someone spotted a mountain goat at the top of the ridge, I took this amazing shot –
At the bottom of the hill, we found the valley where yesterdays photo was taken. The brothers were prepared with shorts, and jumped in the river –
After they thawed out, we got on the motorcycles and beat it for home. A solid 220 mile day.
Guy, John – THANKS for letting the interlopers in on the fun.
Looks like fun. And that snow nearly brought a tear to my eye. Seattle is just looking better and better.
We didn’t even get around to the big side of the mountain! That road is only open 4 months a year due to all the snow! Next weekend maybe…..
Lets be honest… it was not a mountain goat… But the ride and views were amazing!!
I think you do live in an amazing part of the world. M
