The Cascades Autumn Colors Toure is scheduled for Saturday, October 13, 2012, and will highlight the fall colors in the Cascade Mountains. The event will be a relaxing and fun driving day in a social environment, filled with many opportunities to photograph and enjoy the colorful forests, lakes, meadows, rivers, and waterfalls of the Cascades. This event will close out the Audi Club Northwest 2012 TOURE season. Register Now
Beginning in Monroe and ending in Cle Elum, this tour will follow a 235 mile circuitous route through the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie and Wenatchee National Forests, over Stevens, Blewett, and finally, Snoqualmie Passes. Late September and early October are prime time for fall colors, and the route goes through areas of cottonwood, maple, mountain ash, and yellow aspen trees. The drive includes some lesser known and little used twisty and colorful roads near Leavenworth and/or Cle Elum. This event will include a BYOF (bring your own food) lunch in a beautiful fall setting.
Weather permitting this can be an exceptional drive. The 2011 tour was about two weeks too early, so optimum colors were missed last year. We are looking forward to seeing everyone participating and enjoying the awesome scenery that is Washington State in the fall!
