The Long Road Home

IMG 3938Well, the roads didn’t want to cooperate with us today…  We checked the highway reports early this morning to find out that the Coquihala had been closed due to a huge accident and they weren’t expecting to open it for a long while.

IMG 3942Our options included heading home in the usual direction and taking the detour route (which seemed to be the longest, busiest option), or heading home on the slow and windy Crow’s Nest highway and hoping for the best.  Of course, we picked the Crow’s Nest.  The roads were snowy and slippery in some parts, but all in all, they weren’t terrible.  By the time we made it to Princeton, we’d gone through the worst of it and decided to stop for a little break.

IMG 3946Saying that Gracen was ecstatic to be out of the vehicle is an understatement.  Sadly, after letting her cruise around the snowy parking lot for a good long while, we had to strap her back into her seat for the rest of the trip.  She was not a happy camper to say the least.

IMG 3954The rest of our trip consisted of clear roads and a couple side of the highway potty breaks.  It took us well over 8.5 hours to get here, but at least we have no where we need to be for the next 7 days.  Yay for that.
