Snoqualmie Pass Drive 01/25/15
By John Schmit
We're having a mid-winter warm spell. That means get out and enjoy the sunshine! And so we did, with a drive up to Keechelus Lake near the Snoqualmie Pass. There was an interesting fog floating over the lake. We took some time for pictures by the ski resorts too. Coming back down we stopped at North Bend to see what the stores had to offer. Just a fun day.
