What a beautiful drive we had today. We were on the road by about 10:15 heading east on US-2 for 117 miles and about 2.5 hours on the road. Much of the drive was through the Okanagan-Wenatchee National Forest. Starting out, we could see the Cascade Mountains through the windshield and then we crossed through them at Stevens Pass at an elevation of about 4,000 feet. There was still a lot of snow up there and you could tell that some of it was recent, as the roads were dry but there were a few inches on the side of the road.
I saw three waterfalls, two were right along the side of the road and one was half-way up a mountainside. Several rivers were crossed and followed - the Snoqualmie, the Wenatchee, and the Icicle. We are camped at the Icicle River RV Resort for the next two nights - a very neat and tidy place with lots of rocks, trees, and the Icicle River nearby. This is a huge improvement over the so-called Resort that we just left.
