North Cascades Highway is going to close for the winter soon, so we took advantage of the weather, and the motorcycle and rode out here. It’s nowhere. It’s good. They have wood sidewalks, a cowboy hat store and a guy in Three Finger Jack’s Saloon wearing a shirt that said “If God wanted us to be vegetarians, he would have made broccoli more fun to shoot at”. What’s not to like about a town like this?
Low 40’s on the temp display when we were going over the pass, upper 70’s at the foot of the hill. Crystal clear out, perfect weather. Bonus; the moon is hiding on the other side of the planet and there are TEN GAZILLION STARS OUT!!!!!! I could see why someone would want to live like this. Right up until there’s 250 inches of snow on the ground…..
More pictures tomorrow.
