West to East: things you might see along highway two
My health and well being in winter are pretty dependent on weather. It's the beginning of February and the report calls for rain from Everett to the pass, opportunities are limited to skating curbs in a garage or rainboarding, and I'm bummed. In an effort to stay motivated, a few friends and I ignored the forecast and caught an unexpected whole day of sun at the pass, but it was closely followed by more rain. With hopes of more boarding, sunshine and rumors of a quarterpipe we ditched the dreaded return to the wet and let the clouds push us east to enjoy the clear skies.

03 Three cars in front of us pulled over to park next to this truck and watch flames pour out from underneath, continuing on to snowboard seemed the better option. Highway two will kill you. Gold Bar, WA.
