We made our way to the West Coast through mountain passes past incredible scenery. We made a few tops to view waterfalls. It was very picturesque...but tiring as the road wound its way through the mountains. We celebrated the few straight stretches we encountered. One of the things we find remarkable is that even on major highways most of the bridges are one lane only...requiring one direction to yield. Luckily there is not much traffic.
We finally made it to the coast and saw lovely stands of white pine in rain forests coming right down the mountain sides to the coast.
