A few days ago I posted about our trip to the Pacific Northwest, and how I never expected to see such variety in the scenery. Our flight landed in Seattle and then we rented a car and drove south to Oregon area. We spent the majority of our two week vacation driving all over Oregon, beginning with the Columbia River area.

Since we flew into Seattle and rented a car, we had to drive back to Seattle. We gave ourselves three or four days because we wanted to do some sightseeing in Washington, too. We’d been there once before, back when our daughter was a baby. On that trip we visited Olympic National Park, Roslyn (where the TV show Northern Exposure was filmed–we got to watch part of an episode being filmed), Leavenworth (a German town high up in the mountains, and Snoqualmie Falls (where part of the TV show Twin Peaks was filmed), the Space Needle, an aquarium, etc. On this trip, we visited Olympia, the University of Washington, a boat harbor, an arboretum, and a few beaches.

Each place we visited was unique and beautiful. Of course I took tons of photos in Washington, too. One of my favorite places was a beach where we saw not only people, but also horses, bicycles, cars, and trucks actually on the beach. If you look closely at the picture with the bicycle, horse, and people, you’ll see a bird flying overhead. I zoomed in on the photo. It looks like it’s a sea gull.

Here’s a sampling of my favorite photos. I hope you enjoy them.
