Today I drove the 350 miles from Bend Oregon to Seattle Tacoma International Airport for my flight to New York.  The route follows the length of the Cascade Mountains from Bend down to Puget Sound.

Its starts off as high desert, lots of old volcano’s can be seen; apparently they are cinder cone volcano’s.  There are long tubes inside in which it’s possible to go down some distance, they are formed when the volcano discharges lots of ash and gas into the atmosphere.

I took a few photos of the route along the way, nice clean and smooth roads and fantastic scenery.  The very large volcano is Mount Hood.
