Day Tripper…

I have decided to continue writing about some of the cool daytrips from Seattle that I venture out on. Sometimes its nice to get out of the city, isn’t it? Sunday, some friends and myself ventured out to Mt. Baker. Beautiful scenery as you drive along the river and notice the changing of the leaves. No traffic to speak of and the roads are fairly good most of the way. I think it took us a little over 2,2.5 hours to get there. However, note that once you reach a certain point, gas stations cease to exist…so if you think you might have found the last one, its probably time to fill up. *laughs* It was so peaceful out there. We took a hike to Ross Dam and that was really kind of cool. I’d never seen a dam all up close like that. In the background you can see the snowcovered peaks. It was truly majestic. So basically for a tank of gas you can drive north and have a fantastic day just being in nature. Just bring your sweater though, it got rather chilly along the dam. If you go the wrong way home, you can drive through the city of Concrete…but that’s another story.
