Chinook Pass and Seattle Washington

Last Tuesday, Chuck and I drove to Seattle. We took I85 to Yakima, Washington and then we left the freeway and went to Seattle over the Cascade mountains via Chinook pass. The weather was overcast and a bit on the chilly side. The scenery was excellent.

Just past Yakima in Naches, Washington we stopped at a fruit stand to take some fruit to Chuck's folks.

Aplets and Cotlets are a favorite candy treat from this part of Washington. They are made by a company located near Wenatchee Washington. These candies are similar to Turkish Delight.

We stopped along the way and enjoyed the scenery. Too bad we did not have fishing gear.

The wildflowers and mountain scenery was at it's usual best. Fog covered the top of the pass.

We finally made it to Seattle. This is a view from Alki beach looking over the Elliot Bay to the city.

We are now in Dallas, Texas visiting with my mom. The contrast in weather is staggering. It has been over 100 degrees here since we arrived. We will be here for two weeks mother and house sitting while my brother and sister-in-law are on vacation. We will take mom with us to Minnesota to visit our kids and grandkids during these two weeks. I will share that trip with you along the way.
