... a fine, swaying, mountain road through a stunning landscape so deserted it seems incongruous in a country with such a large population. We didn't see our first bear, but deer were common enough for us to moderate our speed and we dropped down into the valley of the Skagit River and the muggy wet of a lowlands summer in the North West.
