MILEPOST GUIDE TO NORTH CASCADES HIGHWAY IN SEATTLE TIMES
Click here for today's Seattle Times about the stunningly beautiful North Cascades Highway, particularly the stretch from Marblemount to Winthrop.
At the top is the wide, sweeping bend at Washington Pass, kind of the pivot point between Eastern and Western Washington. Just above is the aquamarine waters of Diablo Lake below Colonial Peak. Below is some sheriff dude in Winthrop. John Clark on a cell phone too.
(Anybody know if there's anything truth to the story that Ted Bundy, as the limo driver for Governer Stevens at the 1972 opening ceremonies, was the first person to drive across the North Cascades Highway? Seems sorta urban myth-ish.)
Looking forward to riding the highway on my bike, hopefully in the next month or so if the clavicle will allow it. Definitely one for my book.
