We got a picture of Mt. Rainer from this same stop last year but it looked completely different this time with the cloud formations.
Just beyond Chinook Pass the snow got quite deep, but it didn't last for too long.
We intended (if anything is actually intended on this type of trip) to turn off at this point and head in another direction, but couldn't find the road, so we ended up going through Yakima anyway.
It was about 60 degrees near Chinook Pass, and 84 in Yakima. We drove on through Yakima into Ellensburg.
Then through Leavenworth and on home down Highway 2. What I love about Washington is that you can go from snowy mountains to treeless hills and back in to farmland again, just ine one day. We got home about 10:30 last night after 395 miles. Next week the plan is to go to the ocean.
