The Winding Wonder of Chuckanut Drive

Chuckanut Drive is, hands down, my favorite place to drive in the World. Admittedly, I haven't had the chance to take the James Bond chase-scene route into Monte Carlo, but I'm pretty sure it would only be a close second.

Chuckanut Drive's winding roadway hugs the hills between Bellingham's Fairhaven neighborhood South to the wide valley North of Mt. Vernon.  Regardless of the weather, the 30+ minute drive shows off the absolute best of Northwest Washington's geographical character, including  incomparable views of Bellingham Bay, the San Juan Islands, and a peak at Mt. Baker at the Southern end.

Of course, words fail to capture the wondrous majesty of this truly unique highway. So, I took some pictures.  This past week, in spite of the fact that the Winter Olympics have been happening right up the road, has been unbelievably beautiful. With clear blue skies and temperatures in the mid 60's, conditions were set to get some truly fabulous pictures.

The pictures are in order from South to North, between Mt. Vernon and Bellingham.
