Sunday Ryan and I took a road trip up Hwy 2 and enjoyed the beautiful day. First stop was Zeke’s for lunch. This fast food joint is anything but normal. The lines are long and their food is beyond anything you get at McD’s or Jack’s. It is situated not far from an old mine claim that was made by his family patriarch in the early 1900s. They are open all year long and have both indoor and out door seating away from the main kitchen building. They have an old railroad car that Ryan believes they used to serve food from. I had a mushroom burger that was fabulous with deep fried battered mushrooms in stead of fries. Ryan got their special cheese burger with a large fry. They serve milkshakes in just about any flavor you can imagine and even mix flavors if you wish. I had a pineapple and coconut milkshake. Yummy! The location of this must stop eatery is after you have left Gold Bar and have headed on up toward the pass.
Farther up the road is a tunnel in the rock where the road goes through. I have seen them before but you don’t always see these types of tunnels all that often anymore. So I had to add this to my photos for the trip.
We noticed cars all along the road anywhere there was a wide enough spot. Folks would park their cars and walk down the slopes to the Skokomish River to cool off from the days heat. Now we were up river in the mountains and it was 80 degrees there so I don’t know what it was down lower but I imagine it was a really warm day everywhere.
We also passed two waterfalls that we could not get to but could see, so we had to photograph what we saw and share it with you. The first was Bridal Veil Falls.
The second was Wallace Falls.
It’s a beautiful drive up Hwy 2 and would encourage anyone who would love the peaceful and relaxing adventure to head on up and check it out for yourself.
