We left Bellevue late this morning, and set out on the first leg of our cross-country adventure. On the nights that I have internet access (and energy), I'll try to post about our day.

Diablo LakeToday's drive was nothing short of spectacular. We took SR-20 through North Cascades National Park, and loved every minute of it. We took our time, stopped for a picnic lunch along the way, and ended up at our destination--the delightfully quaint "old west" town of Winthrop, Washington. We're staying at The Virginian, in a cute little cabin that has air conditioning, separate beds for the boys, and even--much to our surprise--free wifi! Everyone's in good spirits, though we're a bit tired from driving and walking.

Tomorrow will be a longer driving day, with an as-yet unknown stopping point (I'm guessing somewhere around Butte, Montana, but we'll see how we do during the day).

I'm glad you're taking a more back route (as opposed to taking I-90 straight to Rochester, what a boring drive, ugh!) I love taking back roads everywhere, and trying to avoid built-up areas. It's just more scenic and relaxing, too. Have a safe journey back to Rochester!
