We left Port Townsend in a slight drizzle, but by the time we were down the road ten miles it was a deluge that lasted all the way across the Hood Canal Bridge. We were not hopeful of any views of Mt. Rainier as we drove over Chinook Pass. Regardless, we stopped to stretch our legs at Tipsoo Lake and were rewarded with a partial view of the mountain which I quickly recorded as we walked around. We arrived at our friend's house in plenty of time to make our dinner reservations at one of our favorite restaurants (which is still in business twelve years after our departure from Yakima, WA).
