Father and Son at Rainy Lake, North Cascades National Park, Washington, USA

Today we would ride east over the Cascades to the funky little western-themed town of Winthrop. Here’s the Gorge Dam, the lowest of the three hydroelectric dams that make up the Skagit River Hydroelectric Project-

A bit further on we pulled off at the Diablo Lake overlook to take in the amazing views-

Starting to look like rain…

I’d heard that Rainy Lake was a nice easy hike and very beautiful so we stopped just past the highest point of Highway 20 to stretch our legs with a short hike.

It’s quite chilly up here at ~4900 feet

Beautiful trail to Rainy Lake-

Rainy Lake!

Stunning!

I ask Kristhawee if he wants to go for a swim

It started to rain so we hustled back to the bike. Fortunately our riding jackets are waterproof, so the rain didn’t really bother us.

Rain pants on, let’s go get some lunch in Winthrop!
