At a Glance

Next on the History DH: the past comes alive all around this modern highway running up through the Wenatchee National Forest to Blewett Pass and down to the western reaches of the Kittitas Valley. The 1880sí gold mining heritage of Blewett and Liberty. The telephone museum in Cle Elum. The railroad bunkhouse museum cum B&B in South Cle Elum. Why even quaint Roslynís TV connection dates all the way back to the early 1990s. And one of the TEs is certifiable time travel to a past highway epoch. The modest Scenery combined with the low Twistiness and high Pavement and Engineering one expects from major two-digit thoroughfares in the state would lead you to think that itís not a bad place to see what one of them newfangled Yamaha FJR 1300 contraptions can do. If only it wasnít patrolled by those uniformed dinosaurs determined to turn our era into a Golden Age of Speed Tax Collection. But if you manage to avoid them, this routeís perfectly capable of making your present come alive, too.
