we are back

We are back sorry for the absents just got busy and lost track of time. Last week we went on a trip to Wenatchee, and Port Townsend. I didn't take as many pictures as I had planned but I did take some about 140 or so.

I love old highways some how they fascinate me, they use to find ways to go around and over things, it seems like now when it comes to building roads you don't have to try to figure out how to go around or over anything you just go through it. Anyway here are some pictures of the old Blewett pass this use to be the main highway from highway 2 near Leavenworth to Ellensburg, you can still go over the old pass but Ranger and I didn't go very far up the pass because as you can see it is very narrow and the drop off the side in the first picture is about 600 feet to the bottom , and this is only about 2 miles up the road, and the road is 10 miles long, and nobody knew that we were up there. I hope to go back there next year and travel the entire road before you can't travel it anymore.

This was an area at the start of the old pass, Ranger got to be out without his leash and he really enjoyed that. As you can see it was a bit on the cool side and this was about 10:30 in the morning.

Well my posts for awhile will be of our trip, but don't worry I wont bore you with all 140 of my photos , I hope.

I like your shots of the trip. That old highway sounds like a great place to check out again at a later time.
I enjoyed the stream shot too. Some nice shots in this post, Lloyd!

Welcome back i missed seeing your posts with Ranger. Being that we were just in Leavenworth a few weeks back, i can say the area is beautiful up that way.
