A spectacular drive

Washington Highway 542 runs 57 miles from Bellingham to the ski areas on Mt. Baker.  Along the way, there are spectacular views of the mountain as well as forests, rivers, and waterfalls.

Yesterday, we decided that this would be a good time to make this drive.  So did many others, as this was the first sunny weekend in a LONG time!  On the way down we had a nice lunch at a local bar/food place, and shared it with Harley riders, cyclists, as well as car driven tourists.

Nooksack falls, a pleasant diversion on the way up
