More power to you
What'sbrokenow AKA Don had expressed an interest in seeing more
of the Seattle City Light power project the last time we cruised through
Newhalem. Since I spent part of my youth there and I like to ride those
rural roads I greed to be the tour guide. We had arranged to meet at the
ARCO in Woolley at 9:00 AM. Don showed up at 9:02 after riding from
Ballard. Pretty good. So we got underway right away (I didn't want his
oil to cool) and headed on up to Marblemount.
we then proceeded to the North Cascades NP visitor center where Don was in awe
checked out the info and took the short walk for a view of the Pickett Range
with some Art thrown in
then down to the Little Power House
and a gander at some Big Trees
from the suspension bridge a nice view of Gorge Power House. One pair of big king salmon were procreating below.
then on up to Ladder Creek Falls behind the power house
on the power house observation deck you can see the generators at work
always safety conscious at this facility
then we rode on up to Diablo Dam and across
back down in Diablo
Don checked out the incline railway
Nice day for a ride. We stopped at Clarks Cabins for the special of
Mushroom/swiss burgers with fries. Thanks for the opportunity Don .

Tip of the hat to Tom Edison for a fine day's ride with plenty to marvel at. Too bad I am not a fisherman, Tom pointed out enough holes and pools to keep somebody busy for years. He mentioned taking trout out of about half of them, so I guess he's got a few more to try.
