North Cascades Highway 2018

My annual pilgrimage was successful this year.  I was able to set some personal bests on the way up, and the road was clear for about 22 miles.

Looking down the Skagit river as it wends its way towards Puget Sound.

Back down the plowed highway.

Bike and snowplow.  The last little bit up was only as wide as this plow - about 8 feet.

I kind of wished I had dragged cross country skis up with me.

As it turns out, the DOT ended up connecting the plowed sections the following week, and I got up there for the last weekend it was available.
