Surprise, surprise…there were no state head-to-head polls released on the start of Memorial Day weekend. Good thing, too. I’m traveling.
The weather in the Seattle area was much better than the forecast yesterday. Kathy and I had planned to fly in my little plane (an American Aviation Yankee) to Winthrop, WA to spend time with some friends. Early this morning I had all but given up on it—and then the weather cleared up at both ends. We jumped in the car and departed Harvey Field at 2:10 pm, mostly followed U.S. 2 (i.e. flew through Stevens Pass) and arrived about an hour and a half later.
It was my first time flying through Steven’s pass (although I did Stampede pass last weekend)–the sights were stunning.
