With a few days of forecast clear skies, had to get on the road...
Day 1: Google Route 707 Km (775 on the odometer)
Most of the backroads missing - Google will not plot that many points !
Joined up with Maverick's Burrito Ride #57,, for some WA back roads with a damn early start...
Baker, from... Bakerview Road (go figure). The blue patch, way off, got bigger & better all day.
After the 2$ breakfast special, a short rip along Red River Road, and others, fueled up in Bellingham
Did a whack of backroads, then lunched in Monroe at the Benjarong Thai Restaurant.
Awesome food - and cheap too !
Highway 2: Pretty open, with some great high-speed
corners, and generally open sight lines - nothing like Highway 20
to the north, but hey, was all good...
Approaching Stevens Pass on Highway 2
Ha - I don't even drink coffee - but the Leavenworth Wiener Schnitzel version of Starbucks
was worth a stop...
