Earlier this month we took a trip to Sun Mountain Lodge via the scenic North Cascades Highway. The drive was wonderful providing views like this.
It was gray and rainy on the west side but as we crossed over the mountains we entered into a realm where rain is in short supply and the sun always shines.
We passed through the tiny town of Winthrop, restored to an old west theme and fun for shopping.
Then it was on to the Lodge where we spent the next couple of days off the grid – no TV and spotty cell service – surrounded by views like these – a fair tradeoff.
While Bob went fly fishing I had the day to myself to relax by the pool,
and wander the grounds taking pictures of the flowers
and the bees working them.
There were many trails to explore and I ventured onto one of them but not very far,
because of this.
I guess no travel is without its risks, right?
At night there was dinner with a view and sunsets over the mountains,
a perfect getaway.
