Along the way

The long road trip to the Yonderosa is eased by the scenery.  This route isn't open year round, but when it is...

We figure we add an hour to each trip enjoying the scenery.  It would be a waste to rush.  Even so, there is never enough time to enjoy it all. 

 
The snow has dropped to road level between the two highest passes.  Too many avalanches occur to keep the road open year round.  There may not be many more crossings left before they shut it down this year. 

 
This mountain range is aptly named the Cascades.

  2. BEAUTIFUL PICTURES!! Esp. like the first one. I can see why there are so many avalanches as those rocks just go straight up. How long a drive is it from your home to your Yonderosa?...debbie

  3. The short way over 3 mountain passes can be driven in about 4 hours if you put the spurs to it. Typically it is five and a half hours each way.
