Highway 20

Highway 20 runs across some of northern Washington through the Cascade mountains. It’s usually only open about six months of the year but it opened early this year as there wasn’t much snow. We left all that shit for the east coast. There’s theĀ Cascade Loop, a road trip along this highway and it’s perfect for a motorcycle. Since herself was away, I could stay home, catch up on tv, mow the lawn and have a beer.

Or there is this option;

Nice empty campsite for the first night.

Going through the Cascades the next morning it got a little chilly at the top of Washington Pass, 5,477′ above sea level.

I'm going to mount a snow plough on the bike. At Washington Pass,  5,477' up.

Got to Leavenworth, a Bavarian town in the middle of the mountains.

After the snow, this is what I see? What month is it again?
