A spring ride of the North Cascades Highway

Lope on North Cascades Highway

The highway was only cleared within the last week. In places the snow was 32 feet deep.

Lope stands next to his BMW 1150GS. My Yamaha FJR is on the right.

Heavy snowpack near the summit of the North Cascades Highway.

 

Bicyclists nearing the summit.

Cyclists rest after a grueling climb up the Cascades.

 

Cascades Range

On the return, westerly, trip from Winthrop, the Cascades present an imposing spectacle.
