“Mount Vernon sits at the center of Skagit County, a true slice of Pacific Northwest heaven located halfway between Seattle and Vancouver, BC. About 25 miles wide and 95 miles long, some of Washington’s most scenic and pristine landscape is found in the Upper Skagit’s North Cascades National Park. From there the land flows like the Skagit River through nutrient-rich farmland to the shores of the Salish Sea.”
In April people from around the world descend on Mount Vernon and the Skagit Valley for it’s annual Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. Here are some photos to show you why. My daughter Katie and I headed north form our house to see the blooms on Monday. We enjoyed a wonderful 70 degree day and got a little sunburned as we tiptoed through the tulips!
It’s best to wear mud boots when you go to the tulip fields!
Beautiful daffodils bloom here, too.
Later this week I’ll be posting more of my photos from our Monday in Mount Vernon!
ABC Wednesday is a weekly meme that originated with Denise Nesbitt and now others keep it rolling along.
I’m also linking up to Outdoor Wednesday hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer.
