Day 264 – North Cascades Loop (Part 3)

Day 264 of a Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways

I missed my turn back to the campground last night and forgot to mention the yard art I found. This house was complete with a tiger, bald eagle, moose and a zebra just to name a few.  There were so many, I can’t recall them all and they were big! Anyway, that was my evening entertainment before I turned in.

Gun Battery in Fort Ebey State Park

This morning I went on the greatest walk with Petey in tow.  We followed a ridge trail through Fort Ebey’s forested hills and looked out on the water with a mountainous background as ships sailed by.  Along the way to Partridge Point Beach, we stopped to explore the gun battery constructed in 1942.

Day 263 – North Cascades Loop (Part 2)

Day 263 of a Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways

Well, I felt like I had an extremely busy day to write about, but now that I have skimmed through the pictures I didn’t go many places.  It must have been the holiday traffic and the wait for the ferry that took up a few hours of my afternoon.

Wallace Falls State Park

This morning I took about a 4.5 mile hike in Wallace Falls State Park.  It was cool out and VANilla had a shady parking spot, so Petey got to wait for me.  I normally take him on dog friendly trails, but I’ve been subject to dragging him midway through the second mile.  Thank goodness I left him to rest, the trail had quite a bit of elevation change.
