Totally down I am
Just around the corner from Elbe. FYI that gas station at Safeway is the best price to fill up before you head out.

Elble is on the southwest end of Mt Rainer. From the south hwy 12 to 7 is the shortest. But not the quickest. We are in Olympia and it shows 510 to Yelm as the shortest. Again not the quickest. If we go, we'll go I-5 to Hwy 507 to Hwy 7.

If we take that route, we pass through Spanaway and Graham to get to Elbe.

If your heading from Olympia just following that route your making a larger loop then you need to.
