On a Sunday afternoon in mid-April, a bunch of friends and I went to Skagit Valley, Washington, to see the tulip festival. The drive took us roughly an hour, but the beautiful countryside scenery we saw made the long journey worth it. We saw barns, tractors, crop fields, even cows and horses along the road – things we do not normally see in the city. At one point we even got the chance to see the snowcapped peak of Mount Rainier, Washington’s most famous mountain.
We arrived shortly before two in the afternoon, and the tulips were really a sight to see. Rows and rows of tulips, all of different colors; there were tulips in various shades of red, white, yellow, purple, pink and orange, just to name a few. Visitors roamed around the field, taking pictures while marveling at the flowers. My friends and I joined the crowd of visitors and took pictures amongst the colorful tulips.
The trip was one of the best experiences I have had here in Seattle. The weather was perfect, the flowers were gorgeous, and I was making memories with some of my closest friends. It was a wonderful and fun experience for me!
