Notice how wooded it's become compared to the eastern Washington desert. Increased altitude means increased annual rainfall, which means more forest.
This Reservoir, Rimrock Lake, makes a nice view as you go up.
Looking back on the lake from higher in the valley.
There is an impressive waterfall next to the road.
Eventually you reach White Pass ski area. Be sure to look at current conditions and the web cam shot! (Winter driving may require chains.)
