We braved the crowds and enjoyed the sunshine and went down to Skagit Valley - south of here - to see the Tulip Fields in bloom. The weather has been rainy and I expected the tulips to be damaged from the wind and rain - but they were in great shape. We did get into one traffic jam near one of the big growers and their Tulip Festival activities - but once we got through there we picked the less traveled roads and got some great photos. There were long, long lines of cars coming to see the tulips and leaving also - but we have learned the roads that won't have all the traffic from Seattle and British Columbia.
I'll just let you enjoy the flowers.
It was a wonderful tour of the flowers.
