Up and out today!!! And, though it’s been a great trip, it just didn’t have the same impact as last time we ventured here…We got some good pictures, and were able to see the goats, but…Other than heading up and over Prussic Pass, we really didn’t see that much different. We stop briefly at Nada Lake for more pictures, and then make our way to the Snow lake trailhead to get Greg’s truck!
Aaaahhhh…It feels really good to sit on something comfortable, after 5 days sitting on rocks and logs…We drive back to the other end, to retrieve the other car, and get jolted by the washboards in the gravel road…The scattered pieces off of cars along the road were testimony to how badly the road pounded the less fortunate. I counted 3 hubcaps, and 2 tail pipes on the way up.
Relieved to reach the Nissan, and find it unmolested, we return to Leavenworth, slowly, committed to keeping the vehicle in one piece and our teeth from chattering together over the bone jarring ride out. We meet at the Hiedelburger, an awesome local burger joint that serves up masterpieces smothered in onions and mushrooms, with blackberry shakes as accompaniment! Don’t forget the Tater Tots!!! The lines are always long here, but well worth it, trust me!!!
…we made sure to pay homage to him, by taking snapshots of us flying in “Missing Man” formation…
It’s been another memorable trip, and I didn’t have a byte of memory left on the memory card, all we can hope for now are a few that are keepers, and that the video turned out. We missed Dan on this trip, and we made sure to pay homage to him, by taking snapshots of us flying in “Missing Man” formation…Even though some of the shine might have been worn off by being there 2 years in a row, I still believe it to be a magical place, filled with sights and sounds of a landscape unique.
