Last weekend we made the long (longer than even expected!) trek up to Skagit County, Washington, which is about 60 miles north of Seattle, to see one of this area’s premier spring-time attractions: tulip fields. According to the festival’s website:
The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is one of the destination events for the Pacific Northwest, held from April 1-30. Every spring hundreds of thousands of people come to enjoy the celebration of spring as millions of tulips burst into bloom.
Traffic was horrible and it took us so much longer than expected to get there, so once there we didn’t have a whole lot of time to look around before we had to turn around and come home. But we did get some cool shots of this uniquely Pacific Northwest attraction, and let’s be honest, it only really happened if you photographed it, right? So without further ado, here they are, enjoy!
If you’re from or have been to Washington State, have you even been to the tulip festival?
