Flowers – What woman doesn’t love a nice bouquet of flowers. The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is one of the most visited events in Washington State and offers the opportunity to explore different types of tulips during the prime growing season.
There were tulips for every preference. One hundred and fifty different varieties covered the 15 acre farm. Growers of the Tulips are family run. The Roozen family has been growing Tulips in Holland and US since the 1700s and they know their stuff. I wish I had more to add about food or different sights to see, but this event is all about the tulips – enjoy the photos!

When a sunny day appears around these parts you MUST take the opportunity to go out and see what the beautiful Pacific Northwest has to offer. A short drive from home placed us at Mount Rainier National Park – Skyline Trail. The wildflowers were in full bloom and cute furry animals posed for the camera.
On clear days, you can see Mount Adams and Mount St. Helens from Panorama Point. Be mindful of the slippery conditions and find a place to take advantage of having a snowball fight in the middle of the summer.

On our way down the mountain we saw some amazing greenery and even a waterfall.
