Pacific Northwest Trip: Skagit Valley Tulip Festival

The first day of our trip I met my sister at the airport in Seattle and we drove up to Vancouver, Canada. We stopped at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in Mount Vernon (60 miles north of Seattle and 70 miles south of Vancouver). The traffic was INSANE but with the sun shining the tulips were a must see

I forgot my sunglasses so I basically squinted my way through this trip ;)

  5. Great pictures! We had planned to go the day Nolan got sick. Bummer. I haven't been in three years and we went on a Tuesday. I heard the traffic has been getting worse and worse, especially on a sunny weekend day. I can't wait to read more of your vacation recaps! I'm so sorry we didn't get to see each other!!! :(

    1. It was beautiful! But traffic was really awful. After hours in the car we just decided to park and walk about a mile to find the fields. I can't believe I didn't remember it was tulip festival time! And on a sunny weekend day everyone had the same idea I guess!

      Hopefully you guys can go next year!
