At a Glance

As Seattle strives lustily to become Los Angeles, the mountains to the east are less and less able to gird this DH’s loins from the degrading effects of the city’s in and out traffic. The sheer volume of pylonal fluid seriously impairs Remoteness on a highway largely untouched by actual development. Given the road’s generally low levels of Twistosterone, it can be especially frustrating when this vehicular flow stickies up the best spots. Still, with some curves and attractive Pavement and Engineering, this route remains the best and quickest non-interstate way to get over the mountains and relieve the tensions of Sea-lot-o-people. The stimulating mountain Scenery of the gradual climb up the Skykomish River valley should arouse you. As should the more steeply erect sections up and down from Stevens Pass. And if the prophylactic speed tax collectors don’t interrupt the rhythm of your ride, you’ll find the tantalizing Tumwater Canyon climax at the Leavenworth end completely satisfying. Go on and let this DH seduce you. Before it gets completely californicated.
