So on Tuesday, a couple friends from Spokane (Chris and Joe, aka Frosty)  and myself met up at Colonial Creek Campground in the North Cascades National Park.  The plan was to meet there.  Camp overnight and depart for Artist Point on Wednesday.  

Got a late start for myself and rolled into the adjacent campsite a short time after Chris and Joe showed up.  After dinner was over, I wanted to check out the lighting on the Washington Pass Overlook (on the opposite side of the park) and Liberty Bell mountain.  

The pics with the time stamp in the lower right corner are taken with my Sena 10C Bluetooth and camera.  They can look a bit distorted at times.

So here's what it looked like with the sun coming down on the way over to the Washington Pass Overlook.








The next morning, we headed out to Sedro-Wooley for breakfast at the Iron Skillet...known according to the sign on the front for it's good food and lousy service.  Or was it lousy food and good service?  







After a good breakfast with great food and great service, we headed off to Artist Point.





Chris on the left and Frosty in the middle with Mt Shuksan behind them.




This is a shot of Upper Bagley Lake.  Normally, the tiny little pond in the background in the cirque is full of water when I see it.  That day...well, we haven't had much rain in quite awhile and it shows.



From a couple years ago.

Mt Baker was a little clouded in.

I'm curious.  Do you mean you won't ride Highway 20 after Sept 3rd based on the calendar date?  Or do you stop riding it based on weather?

I think he means he's going on a trip Sept 3rd--  done previous trips - usually early in the season.
