Come join us on a 80-mile/2 hour driver's tour northward through the scenic Skagit and Whatcom Counties to within 150 ft of the Canadian Border before heading west to Lynden for lunch. Included are some twisty, secondary back roads on this route that the club has not previously driven that I know you'll enjoy!
We've reserved a meeting room at the The Inn at Lynden (www.inatlynden.com) for all of us to gather for a pay-as-you-go lunch to be ordered downstairs from Avenue Bread (www.avenuebread.com/lynden). They have a wide selection of comfort foods including delicious sandwiches and soups with local beer on tap.
After lunch, our groups will walk a couple blocks and enter The Lynden Pioneer Museum (www.lyndenpioneermuseum.com) - $5/person entry fee, pay at the door - to hear a short presentation by the museum's curator while viewing their collection of horseless carriages. This large and colorful collection, not all of which will be on display, is the largest of its kind west of the Mississippi River.
After the presentation, you're free to to explore the rest of the museum on your own. Displays include WWI and WWII memorabilia, antiques from the late 19th and early 20th century farming and homesteading, tools and steam equipment used for logging, an indoor town street façade with many varied storefront displays, and a Sherman tank, among other interesting things.
