Skagit Valley Tulips
You didn't think I would go the entire spring without posting a million photos of flowers did you? These are from the annual Skagit Valley Tulip festival. In the past few years the festival has unfortunately lapsed into a big tourist trap where you have to pay $5 to look at a field of flowers. It may look like a peaceful valley of flowers, but these photos are deceptive, there were people everywhere! And most were ignoring the signs like in the photo above. A lot of people where doing this thing where they squatted down in the flowers and had someone take a picture of them squatting there in the flowers... Future awkward family photos for sure. Despite all the people squatting and tramping through the flowers, it was very pretty to look across and see the huge swaths of color across the valley. I just don't know if I want to make a return trip next year.
