Highway 20 leads you from the Puget Sound, past Mt Baker through the jagged peaks of the North Cascades depositing you into the scrubs of Central Washington. We savor these, our last days of mountains.
I am again dumbfounded by the drive by tourists that click away on their cameras as they zoom down the highway and I know that they are missing the heart of the North Cascades and settle just for a glimpse.
A cute little town that provided all that we needed while here, but a bit too perfect for my tastes.
As we will be leaving the forest soon, I savor the moist green of this forest walk.
Undeniably, Fall is in the air.
Newhalem Creek Campground is on the west side of the park. The remaining campgrounds are at the middle section of Highway 20 about 25 miles East. We take a day trip to explore more the beauty of the North Cascades.
