Day 6: Idaho to Seattle, Washington

Wahoo!  Day 6!!  It was a quick 5 hour drive from Coeur d'Alene to Seattle, despite some nasty, wet weather through the pass and a bear of a rush hour. Entering the state of Washington was surreal.
The drive was again full of lovely scenery including an amazing trip right through the heart of the Cascade Mountains via the Snoqualmie Pass.  I feel like we had traveled over and through and around plenty of mountain ranges during our trip across the country, but this one was by far the most dramatic.  The pass was very narrow and steep, and to either side were rocky cliffs with waterfalls.
 The Columbia River was also a sight to behold.
 But, there were also parts of Washington state that were flat and went on forever and were bordered by fields of these yellow flowers.
And, there were some serious windmill farms.

So, after 6 days, 13 states and 3,000 miles, K and I finished the journey from Columbia, Maryland to Seattle, Washington.  It was a silly, fun, memorable, tiring, unforgettable trip.  I am not quite ready to drive across the country anytime again soon, but I am thankful that K allowed me to join him on this adventure.  :)
