23 - Snohomish, WA

Today should’ve been a very short driving day but Sunday traffic outside of Seattle was horrible. At least to me. We thought about stopping in Leavenworth, WA, since the town was done up as a Bavarian Village. Even the Safeway was decorated. Too many people and the dogs don’t deal with crowds very well. Heading west towards Everett there was one long section with a dozen signal lights and it took almost an hour to go 3 miles. How can anyone put up with this…

We had lunch in Snohomish with our hosts, Steve and Cheryl, then wandered around town a bit. Bridget wanted about thirty minutes looking in the antique shops. I found a bicycle lock at a non-antique shop. The first picture is downtown Snohomish and the second was just at a rest area off of Hwy 2.

We're going to be in the Everett, WA area by Thursday....planning to camp west of Spokane tonight.

All I can say is “too many people!”. But you’re more used to crowded… West of Spokane was hot. It was over 90°F when we went through.

It's hard for me to deal with crowds and traffic patiently anymore. I guess we're fortunate not to have to, most of the time, anyway.

I don’t know. I remember RMNP being incredibly crowded.

It is, especially on weekends. So we have learned to time our visits appropriately!

The whole people thing does get old. We like living in Virginia so much more than Maryland for that very reason, fewer people. But crazy-crowded "Northern Virginia" isn't far away. Downtown Snohomish looks nice and quaint.

Snohomish was a nice, quiet break from the crowds...
