July's Update is up!

RE: July's Update is up!
I always enjoy reading his writing about my home, Washington. I particularly like how he described my favorite place on earth, Chinook Pass and the surrounding area as 'unparalleled'. I tend to agree, but I have to give full disclosure, I've been going up there since I was a very small boy. My ancestors would pan for gold in Morse Creek and other areas in the American River Valley and other nifty parts of the William O. Douglas forests. Having family in both the Yakima area and the Seattle/Tacoma area has given me ample opportunity to really explore these mountains and I think that 'unparalleled' is a huge part of the reason I still live here.
Soon the lupine landscape will erupt in colors and shapes of fragile beauty and it's simply a marvelous time to go up there and escape the race down here by the Sound. The show indeed was f-in delightful, just like the whole tour. I didn't know that I was to bear witness to a 'first' by Mr. Lee, but was tickled and proud to be a part of it. I can't wait for those bikes to return to the PNW so I can read more reflections about a place so familiar and dear to me. I always learn something new, too, which is inspiring. I had no idea that Sedro Woolley was once called 'Bug'. But then again, history is rich here, as it is in many places.
I yearn to feel that Chinook wind on my face soon. What a treat. Thanks for the great update, and enjoy your well deserved respite.
