Maple Pass Hike, October 2022

Five other couples joined Linna and I for a beautiful fall weekend in the Winthrop, Washington area for a three day weekend filled with food, friendship and fun.

All of us hiked up Maple Pass on Saturday and spent most of our time taking pictures of the fall colors.

We Got To The Maple Pass Parking Lot About 7:30 a.m. And All The Parking Spots Were Full So We Parked Along Highway Like Everybody Else.
