Road View Report

So happy to report our drive over Snoqualmie pass was uneventful and smooth sailing.

The Ryegrass rest area was our first stop to change drivers. From this point to Vantage there was an Elk migration warning. We kept a keen eye on the road and the hillsides for Elk but didn’t see any.

The worst conditions we had were on Division driving through Spokane where the potholes were huge! Hwy 395 also had some potholes to watch for. Yikes. This winter has really taken a toll on the roads!

We made to our son and daughter in laws just before sunset and this is the view from part of their driveway (minor road) after switchback #1 and before switchback #2 and #3 that leads up to their home. Glad our 2 wheel drive did not get stuck in a rut on the driveway!

Today Dear is starting to paint the nursery and a dresser and toy box truck. I’ll be taking the dog for a walk when I see the outdoor temperature gauge rise above 20 degrees. Here’s a “good morning” view from Dan and Jamie’s world.

I hope to get around to blogs later this afternoon. Hope your Thursday is starting nicely. So pleased the sun is shining today and it’s not snowing here right now. How’s it in your corner of the world?

  1. Oh how beautiful!!! Those misty frosty views are just so lovely. So thankful you arrived safely. Have fun walking the dog and getting that sweet baby’s room all set – such fun!

  2. That first picture along the road is fabulous.
    Sounds like some driveway! but what a view when you get up there!!
    I know what you mean about the steps. : )

  3. It is so beautiful! We don’t get much winter in Texas! It was in the 80’s today and we are cleaning up the gardens for spring.
    I’m so excited for you and your family!

  4. What gorgeous scenery on your trip to visit your loved ones!! I am glad that you had safe travels and avoided the elk. Yikes!

    Enjoy your time together. How exciting to be working on projects together to welcome this much-loved little one!

  5. What a beautiful view Dan and Jamie have! Switchbacks in their driveway, eh? Sounds intense. Glad that you are safely there and about to begin your tasks. Happy painting and happy walking…

  6. I’ve heard about the terrible conditions in Spokane with the pot holes. We can’t live too far from where your Dan and Jamie live… Beautiful views they have! I don’t envy them the switchbacks at all. We have quite a trek up our little mountain road, but the county keeps it up, so it is usually pretty good. Glad you made it across the passes without any issues! Enjoy your time with your kids 🙂
