Diablo Lake

Last Saturday I decided to explore some more of this gorgeous part of the country. The Cascade Loop is a 440-mile roadway through the Cascades. I have been through part of it when visiting Leavenworth, but there is much of it I have not been on yet. I chose to go down the other side of the loop, through North Cascades National Park to Diablo Lake. I only made a day trip of it, but would love to take a few days to go all the way around the loop and see everything. Below are some photos.

Gorge Dam and Gorge Lake beyond it. This is one of three dams and together they apparently provide ~89% of Seattle’s electricity.

Pinnacle Peak, I think.

Diablo Lake looking south—look at the color of the water! And Colonial Peak, I think.

I drove over the Diablo Dam. It felt good to be a gangsta.

Wow. So pretty. So you've been to Leavenworth too? I've never been but I've heard of it. It actually popped into my head earlier this week. Is it cool?

Leavenworth was fun. We weren't there for any big festivities, but it's modeled after a Bavarian village and has a lot of fun shops and good food. Had some amazing brats there. I think there's at least one brewery. It's in the mountains so the drive there is quite scenic, and there's skiing in the winter if you're into that. It's probably a day trip unless you're there for a festival or skiing.

Yeah, I've seen pictures and knew it was modeled after a Bavarian village. It looks so cool!
