This trip took place April 28, 2012. The weather on the West side of the Cascades was not looking ideal. To make up for this my buddy Chance offered us a trip to the East side of the Cascades where the weather was friendlier. As we approach Leavenworth we could at last see the sun! (In Lynnwood you almost never see it at this time of year)
"So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and diffrent sun."
