When we lived in Brooklyn, we were fond of saying that, in just two hours, we could jump in the car and be in...the Bronx! #glib
That's not so out here. There's nothing wrong with the winter drive to Packwood, but the summer/spring route over Cayuse Pass is just stupid perfect. From the glassy skyscrapers of Seattle, through orchards and horse farms, passing rad retro signage, #mtrainiernationalpark
and (almost) year-round snowfields.
We miss lots of things about NY, but y'all can have your BQEs and LIEs and FDRs all to yourselves.
