A few weeks ago we ventured to Ross Lake for the first time. We heard that that road had just been re-made and had been advised that it’s a good time to drive it before the summer RV traffic ruins it! The road to Ross Lake is an unmaintained gravel road that is re-made once a year after winter so gets progressively worse over time; after the first 20 minutes it all seemed pretty good and we were making good headway until the potholes started to appear. After a short while it was apparent that the road was not actually yet completed and after possibly a dozen “I think we should turn back”s from one or other of us after driving at a crawl speed for miles, we were eventually too committed to turn around and so pressed on. 2 hours and 60 km later we’d driven through the stunning Skagit Valley Provincial Park and arrived at Ross Lake which spans the Canada/US border. It was rainy on and off but I managed to get a few flights completed with the drone in between the rain showers, and this is one of my favourites.
