To the Lower 48

The Lower 48 – what the hell is that? Easy. It means the Lower Contiguous 48 States of the United States, usually in comparison to Alaska, which is separated from the first 48 states by Canada. Of course, Hawaii is not part of the game – who bothers for small islands. Ok?
Our long journey thru the rather non-descript west of Canada. Back to the US. Washington State. A visit to Olympic National Park and Mount St. Helens.
