Rain in Washington State
It started to rain last night and was continuing to rain. I’m sure the scenery would have been beautiful if we could have seen it through the fog and mist.
We hit the Seattle metropolitan area pretty early in the day. We made several stops at stores along the way in preparation for our drive into Canada tomorrow.
We were going to cross over at the Sumas-Abbotsford Customs Center. Because we hadn’t ever gone through a border crossing in the Fuso, we weren’t quite sure what to expect. So we didn’t buy any food or alcohol.
Once we finished our shopping, we drove northeast. We planned to stay at one of the campgrounds in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.
We passed several campgrounds that were full. Finally we came to the Douglas Fir Campground.
We found a campsite. It was reserved for the weekend, but available for tonight.
Our campsite backed up to the North Fork Nooksack River. The river was running fast and really high.
The view of the river and campsite from the back of the Fuso was interesting.
It stopped raining for a while.
