Road Trip to the North Cascades

Back in September I took the family and my parents for a drive (a rather lengthy one, as it turned out) through the North Cascade Mountains. The day was spectacular and we all had a great time. Highlights of the trip consisted of miniature golf and a stop in an orchard for some fresh-from-the-tree apples. The day took me back to my own childhood, where a drive into the mountains with my own grandparents was a not uncommon occurrence during the summer months.

Trips to the mountains with Papa and Nanny were always the best! Roadside picnic with Nan's fried chicken and potato salad were awesome. I miss those days and Nan's fried chicken.

Looks like a great trip. You've got "real" mountains out west. I'm jealous.

I recall our trip to the Cascades. Sinatra in the CD player and the whole day to ourselves.

I could really use another such trip.
