A sunny Saturday was ours to do with what we wanted…’freeway’ was going ‘four wheeling’..heading east on the #1 Highway..we drove towards Chilliwack..
and continued another 42 kilometres to exit #153..
Jones Lake is in the Skagit Range of the Cascade Mountains and it offers spectacular views of the glacier if the skies are clear…were we going to have clear skies?..didn’t look too promising as we headed inland…
It is a steep gravel logging road for about 9 kilometres…it has steep rough sections, designed for 4x4 vehicles with high clearance..it was ‘chicken bar’ time..
we drove through a couple of the campgrounds..diehard campers..roughing it..mostly tents and truck campers…we did see one travel trailer and a tent trailer..this road is not conducive to ‘big rigs’…
We found the picnic area…a perfect spot for a picnic lunch..egg sandwiches on fresh baked bread… and Tucker could have a swim..everyone was happy!!!..especially the ‘four legged boy’
as we drove away from this picturesque spot ..we said ‘we will be back’..next time armed with firewood, roasting sticks and wieners and marshmallows..maybe in the fall..when the leaves are changing colour??..
as we are heading home i was thinking of how many times we have driven this highway?… too many times to count….today we crossed one place off our list of ‘must stops’…we will return because there are many more stops along this route that we have yet to see…..another day..another adventure!
