Steven's Pass, Blewitt Pass, and Snoqualmie Pass are Clear

With last weekend's nice weather, I played gardener Saturday and went for a ride Sunday. From Renton, I hit May Valley Rd / WA-203 / US-2 to Leavenworth and US-97 down to Ellensburg, and back I-90 to WA-900. Steven's Pass (US-2) is in great shape, but cold as hell. Blewett Pass (US-97) is clean, but between the weird surface texture and crosswind it felt like my tires were going flat. I later heard that they're using some new kind of carbide-tipped sweeper? No idea how true that is, but I stopped in Ellensburg for fuel and a sanity check. The first 10-15 miles of I-90 were miserable with traffic, but it cleared up before too long and there are just the usual high-truck-traffic ruts. WA-900 back into Renton was just onesy-twosy grannies out for a Sunday drive.

I grabbed lunch at Heidi's Bun & Kaffee Haus in Leavenworth. Got a good Caramel Machiatto and Peanut Butter Cookie, but a bland Hot Pastrami and Swiss sandwich. Ellensburg was an adventure on its own, and really did its worst to put an end to my otherwise enjoyable ride. Unfortunate experience lesson: AAA Basic doesn't include locksmith services or towing for motorcycles, and every toolkit should include a bent metal coat-hanger.

Chinook is still closed.
White Pass is chewed to heck-n-gone on the pass where they've been plowing,
but lower down it's smooth sailing.
