Day 1: North Bend - Snoqualmie Pass - Cle Elum

Familiar Faces

Beth, Tom, and Marijke have lunch at the top of the pass


Dean and Russ get caught up on life

Pat makes it to the top of Snoqualmie Pass

The usual reason for a late departure from the rest stop

Day 2: Roselyn > Blewett Pass > Leavenworth

We biked over Blewett Pass and arrived in Leavenworth at around 12:30. The temperature was already in the 90s, and our tent was set up in a school field with no shade. So, Russ, Dennis, and I went to the brew pub across the street from the park where dinner was going to be served.

Pat found us first (she had my cell phone number)

More and more folks showed up...

Eventually, Marijke, her daughter, and daughter's boyfriend joined us also (not shown).


Then, we went to the park and waited for food.

After dinner, more of the same - the tent was still too hot to sleep in.

Day 3: Leavenworth - Steven's Pass - Skykomish

Last day - up early

In fact -could it be...?

the poodles leaving ahead of everyone else...?

will they make it...?


Oh, no. Never mind.

Entertainment at the rest stop

Top of the pass - time for lunch!

And then down the hill and to the end of the ride.
