Route 105 near Shelton, Washington




The road ahead

And to the right...The Hood Canal and The Olympic Mountains

Larye (The Unix Curmudgeon) Our Warm Showers host in Shelton. We were tired of climbing hills in the heat so Larye mapped out a shaded river valley road with little traffic that took us all the way to Tumwater. In fact, Larye's suggested route from Bremerton to Shelton managed to avoid hilly downtown Bremerton and another killer hill along the way. Instead, we rode along the beautiful Hood Canal with a clear view of the Olympic range all the way. 






Leave it to a programmer to find a better route!
