Cascade Ride Today
I had the day off, so I decided to ride from the Greenwater area to Cliffdel. I ended up riding from Hwy 410 to FS70 to FS7080
to FS1914 to FS19 to Hwy 410. It was a great ride over Pyramid Pass. The roads were clear of snow and passable.
Mt. Rainer viewed from FS7080.
The road to the top of Pyramid Peak is still snowed in. This is at about 5200 feet.
After a quick cheeseburger in Cliffdel, I headed back to FS19, FS1914, and FS7036 with the intent of
continuing to FS7030 and FS70. However FS7036 is still blocked by snow.
Snow on FS7036.
I decided to to try to make it across to I-90. I headed down FS7037. While on FS7037, I caught up with a Ural Patrol ridden
by Windmill. He had came up from Stampede Pass and turned around at the same place I did on FS7036. We rode back
via Tacoma Pass - FS7037, FS52, FS41, to FS54, to I-90.
Washout on FS52.

We crossed I-90 and rode down FS4832 to Hyak. After a quick pit stop for fuel, we rode down FS58 and FS52 to the Tinkham exit.
