Skykomish was magical but, it was time to leave with the threat of weather, rain and ambient coolness. This is something foreign to this Floridian. Oh, we had to cross Spencer Pass causing such elevation. We went out US 2.
At mile 6 1/2 we crossed onto Old Cascade Rd. OMG. It was called something else, too.
We got back on US 2 for the uphill that was Spencer Pass. I had a glitch with the cadence sensor but it was fixed at the top of the pass. 37 degrees at 4061 feet. I was freezing a good chunk of this day after the summit. Brrr.
Zoom down the big hill. The creek at the SAG.
Water running next to the road would be a recurring theme.
I stopped at The Alps Fudge and Candy Store for FUDGE.
A spill way before town.
Rest day in this hamlet. A planned move for us. Peace out Tres dog

Remembering what those forests smelled like! Ahhh!
Enjoy your rest day!
How far will you follow US 2? It is transcontinental.
Our son and spouse are visiting here in Northern Virgina from Yakima, WA. (You may have met them both at Mom Louise’s service.) They’ve traveled the route you’re on through WA, ID, MT and we’re all loving your pictures and narratives. Thank you for sharing!
great pictures,, lots of rushing waters, forests and mountain views
Beautiful snow-capped Mountains, crystal clear rivers and stream are a sight for these Florida eyes. We are in the nineties .
Hope you brought some warm clothes. Thanks for sharing the phots second best to being there. Hope you are taking care of yourself. Regards from YNSSA
Very nice white water river and tree photos. I bet the fudge was tasty.
