    We are now in a lil RV park in Marblemount, Washington. I will be going into work at North Cascade National Park come Sunday. While traveling thru Montana, Idaho, and Washington we witnessed some ugly flooding from swollen rivers along the way. Including a 5th wheel in a KOA in Idaho that had water up to the door and rising as we passed by. We also heard on news of roads closing behind us from flooding. We also were lucky to avoid two avalances in the cascades that happened the day before our arrival. They were still cleaning them up as we came thru. Its been one fun and beautiful trip.

    Hello! And Welcome to WA! Marblemount is only about an hour or so from us! Hope you enjoyed the North Cascades highway...beautiful trip! We camp up that way on ocassionin Rockport at Howard Miller Steelhead Park. Raser state park is also nice. Last weekend we had record high temps (90 here) which played havoc with the snow pack. Like you say, lots of fooding and avalanches! A real fluke...back to normal now!

    Where are you headed?
