Rat Pac and Teanaway

Escaped the rain in Seattle by heading over to the other side of the Cascades. Sunshine and wind in Cle Elum were a reasonable trade for a 2.5 hour drive due to heavy commuter traffic in the morning. The snow has pretty much melted at the Main Ridge above Cle Elum, but a few patches above 3300 ft on Rat Pac and up at the ridge remained and made a few small push-bike-through snow necessary. Riding down through some snow drifts was super fun – no need for a fat bike.

Stats: 24 miles, 4200 ft., GPX track

The snow clouds clear up minutes later and the Steward Range comes out of hiding.

The Teanaway basin is pretty much clear of snow. Time to ride some trails there.

  1. Looks lovely. Like a ride we will do when I visit. I was hoping to load the gpx file. Do you have that outside of garmin connect?
