Back in Fourth Grade or so we all learned about the windward side of the Mountains getting plenty of rain and the lee side experiencing a dry climate. Today we are getting a real life illustration of that geography lesson. As we left the Methow Valley headed west and climbed into the Cascade Mountains in northern Washington State the rain started. Our last visit here we experienced a beautiful sunny day and lots of glorious vistas. Today the beautiful peaks were shrouded in clouds. We did have enough of a break in the rain to permit us to hike to the Visitors Center along the River Loop but this evening we’re grateful to be in a comfy T@B 400 listening to rain on the roof and to look out at the mossy green woods on the other side of our window!
