Shubha & Mike move west!


7 October 2017

Home city! 13 states, 10 days, and 3400+ miles later, we made it to Seattle! Sun, snow, and rain - we saw it all today. We are ready with rain gear and sunglasses for our next adventure.
Octoberfest and lunch in Leavenworth, WA. A mini-Bavaria in Washington.
Getting closer! Some scenic spots by Columbia River as we continue driving in Washington.

6 October 2017

Soap Lake, Washington. A tiny seasonal town, apparently the lake has curative properties...
Washington!! Home state. Driving into Washington at sunset and our first sign for Seattle.
Idaho! State #12 and we entered PDT!! Pit stop for lunch at Coeur d' Alene.
Sadly we had to say goodbye to the plants. It turns out city plants don't appreciate a cross-country road trip past Chicago.

Wyoming! Where it went from sunny-ish skies to rain to snow and below freezing and dark windy roads in the Bighorn National Forest. Our first snow of the season! And remembering what 19F/ -7C felt like (luckily it's warmed up to 31F/ -1C today).
More of South Dakota and Crazy Horse - highest admission fee so far on this trip! The sculpture is still in progress...
