...and it's a doozy!
Elk Pass is closed. I will have to detour to Vancouver then north to home. Good news is it will be doable in the time schedule I am on. I can still go to The Dalles and back to Hood River as planned. I will still cross at Bridge of the Gods. I even have the choice of splitting up the day to Vancouver (currently at 70+ miles) and still make it home by the 18th.
It deprives me of going up Steven's Canyon to Paradise at Mt. Rainier. I'm beginning to think I am not destined to ever do that road!
It is what it is, and I just have to be flexible and go with it!
