It was really a long way down to the road we just came up. Great views from the overlook.

Early Winter Spires by Washington pass. The pass itself is a comfortable 5400 ft elevation.

From the pass SR20 follows a series of creeks to the northwest towards Ross Lake. There are several trails along SR20 which take hikers deep into the park. Keep in mind that SR20 and the view from it is just a small portion of the whole park.

We met several other bikers at Ross Overlook. One group came all the way from Alabama.
