A final shot of winter

On a getaway to Eastern Washington we were surprised by snowfall in the higher passes of the North Cascades Highway. Of course nothing should really surprise us, in May, on that stretch of highway. Oh yeah, the forecasts were calling for 85+ degrees and high clouds during our stay in Mazama, thirty miles downhill, but it’s spring in the Cascades and Methow Valley. 

Casey was beside himself while checking out his first real accumulation of snowfall in over a year and a half. So we cut him some slack while he was taking it all in. As you would guess he didn't want to move on any time too soon.

  1. It's funny how dogs not used to snow are fascinated by the stuff - Boris is the same! Love the first photo!
