Camping Part I

Getting there...

Washington state is amazing. The Cascade Mountain range creates two totally different climates in one state.

The west side, where I live, gets most of the rain and therefore is vet lush and green.

I'm going to throw some science at you so hold on...

In order for the clouds to get over the mountains they drop all their moisture to gain elevation this creating a lush green environment on one side and a more arid desert like environment on the eastern side...

It's always warmer there in the summer and colder in the winter.

The pictures below are us crossing the mountains last week on our way to Banks Lake for our annual group camping trip.

I get a lot of knitting done when we cross over the pass....
