Skagit Valley Tulip Festival

During spring break, the kids and I escaped for a couple of days of R&R with my mother at our family cabin.  It is located north of Seattle at the base of Mt Baker. It rained a lot during our stay, but we journeyed up to the ski area and let the kids play in the snow.  Driving home we stopped to explore the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.  It happens every year from April 1st to the 30th.  The trick is to catch the flowers in full bloom. There are many growers and during the peak of the festival the entire valley is a sea of color.  First come the daffodils and then the tulips show their color.  This year our timing was perfect.  If you plan on making the trip to this festival I would suggest going during the week to avoid the large weekend crowds.  You can check out the festival website for all kinds of related information.
