Jul 25, 2012 - Wish you were here!

Sedro-Woolley, WA Mount Baker is an active stratovolcano in the North Cascades of Washington State. It has the second-most thermally active crater in the Cascade Range after Mount Saint Helens. It comes as a surprise, then to learn that, after Mount Rainier, Mount Baker is the most heavily glaciated of the Cascade Range volcanoes and is one of the snowiest places in the world. In 1999, Mount Baker set the world record for recorded snowfall in a single season — 1,140". We naively expected to do some hiking up at Mount Baker today and take...

Jul 24, 2012 - A heat wave

Sedro-Woolley, WA We are still at Sedro-Woolley in Washington. Curious about the name, we looked it up. Sedro-Woolley was formed from neighboring rival towns known as Sedro and Woolley. Anyway, it is a good base for exploring North Cascades National Park. Today we walked the Trail of Cedars. It was a nice walk (not hike) through a cedar forest and lots of moss-covered downed trees, rocks, and branches. It was very peaceful. From there we went to the Gorge Dam and we were able to go inside the dam. We also hiked a trail there up to Ladder...

Jul 23, 2012 - Rainy day blues

Sedro-Woolley, WA It is a rainy day, 52 degrees with a cold breeze. Rather than do any sightseeing today, we used the day for errands. We took care of laundry (it does pile up!), got gas and purchased groceries. We have been purchasing cherries from road stands and now it is raspberry and strawberry season so we got some of them, too. They are fantastic when so fresh. While we were out, Jim did spot 4 elk so he got his wildlife fix. We are still in Washington but have left the coast. In looking back at our tour up Hwy 1/Hwy 101, we have...

Jul 22, 2012 - A Ferry good day

Sedro-Woolley, WA It was a travel day again and this time we did a chunk of it by car ferry. Taking the ferry saved us a drive of over 140 miles. The ferries are huge, carrying 64 vehicles and 750 passengers at a time. The journey was quite smooth and took only 30 minutes. We were then on Whidbey Island, a 55-mile long island that is the longest island in the continental US. Jim just loves seeing the biggest, longest, whatever. On Whidbey Island we attended the Loganberry Festival at Green Bank Farm. This was a 2-day festival and had lots...

Jul 17, 2011 - Washington State

Hello from Washington State, We left Kamloops Canada about 8:00 AM it was sunny and about 60°. We came south on Canadian route 5, this is a good road 4 lane divided highway, I was amazed at the curves and the steep hills some as much as 8% grade. We waited in line at the border crossing for about 40 minutes, when we got to the booth he just looked at our passports and waved us through. We arrived at Dick and Darlene's about 2:00, it was drizzling rain and temperature in the mid sixties, typical Seattle weather. We parked our motor home in...
