Road trip!

I am on my way to Minnesota with my folks. Three of us shoehorned into a minivan. Well, shoehorned sounds harsh, it's actually quite comfortable. And, with a load of stuff (like sleeping bags and pillows) in the back to mask the rattles, rather enjoyable too.

So, here're some shots made along the way.

The view of Ross Lake just before crossing Washington
Pass on Highway 20.

Our first stop on the Methow River
in Winthrop, WA. This spot just
behind the motel where we decided
to picnic.

And, in the morning - ballooning!
Not for us, but a treat to watch.

Kate's drill team, the Skagit Rein Riders, had another performance last night - (if you hurry you can catch 'em at 7:00 tonight too) - at the Skagit County Fair.

Amazing work they do up on those big animals. This is a whole 'nother level above what the Shriners do at the parade...
