Day 26: Seattle to Idaho

alt

Another driving day, but on back roads, mostly. We started out this morning on Vashon Island, a quick ferry ride from Seattle. Having bid farewell to Andy's friends, we drove east and jumped off the highway near the Columbia River, where were took back roads across the arid sage fields of easter Washington. We arrived in Idaho after dark.

Day 25: Mt. St. Helens to Mt. Rainier

alt

It's still cloudy, so we cannot see any of these volcanoes. We hiked down to Spirit Lake below Mount Saint Helens, then hopped over to Mount Rainier and hiked up to the glaciers on Alpine Trail.

Day 24: Mt. St. Helens

We stayed with Andy's friends last night in Eugene, Oregon. The clouds rolled in, but we were not deterred from visiting Mount Saint Helens today.
