Traveling on cloudy days is ideal—it’s usually cooler and there’s no sun glare no matter in what direction you’re driving.
And so it was when we left Sequim (WA), heading for Silverlake (WA). From US 101, we picked up WA 104…and soon after that sat at the side of the road for minor emergency road service.
The repairs completed, we headed across the Hood Canal on the William A. Bugge Bridge, a 7,869-foot floating bridge. It is the longest floating bridge in the world located in a saltwater tidal basin, and even though it has been around since 1961, I wish there were another word to identify the type of bridge it was, other than “floating.”
Here we caught some rare signs of fall. I say "rare" because compared to the hills of New England covered in color in the fall, the forests of the Northwest present a solid coat of pine green.
