Arriving in Seattle

Yes! We made it to Seattle just as scheduled!  We traveled from Missoula, MT to Seattle, WA on I90  West.  This was a wonderful trip. The I 90 West is one of the most beautiful routes we have traveled so far on this trip.  We started this morning with a temperature of 58F and encountered 103F on the desert like plains on the way  from Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, to Seattle.  By the way, if you ever come this way, you got to stop in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. The area is surrounded by lakes left by the glaciers of the ice age.  Coeur d'Alene Lake is the most scenic of them. This city is one of the most fascinating places to visit in northwest.  We had lunch at Calypsos a unique coffee shop / gallery restaurant.  Here we met Pam, an exceptional and talented artist, with whom we spend a good amount of time talking about her artwork, life and its purpose. J

We had a great time riding around Coeur d'Alene, and loved that place so much that we are planning to come back for a longer stay sometime in the future.

Coeur d'Alene is only 30 miles from Spokane, WA.  The view along this route is breathtaking.  With it majestic mountains and lakes, makes the travel relaxing and enjoyable despite the heat.  As we got closer to Seattle, the temperature dropped about 25F, which was great!  So, yes, we got to Seattle at the scheduled time, ready to go for dinner at a nearby restaurant.  We plan to visit some exciting places in Tacoma, and Seattle tomorrow.  The weather has been really nice, and for that we are thankful!
