During the summer months, the Washington State Department of Transportation conducts blasting operations on the Snoqualmie Pass. On an evening drive to Wenatchee from Seattle, I chose to take the I-90 route to Cle Elum, then Blewitt Pass over to Leavenworth and highway 2 over to Wenatchee.
Well… In terms of convenience, this route did not pass muster on the night in question. Blasting was underway and I-90 was completely stopped as cliffs were trimmed and rock debris was clear from the freeway.
However, as a photographer who refuses to travel without his camera, I was prepared for a little delay. The stop provided me with a rare vantage up Commonwealth Basin straight to Mt. Snoqualmie. Here is a result of my good fortune.
