Tulip Farm

Yesterday, a group of us took a drive to Mount Vernon, WA (about 60 miles north of Seattle, WA and 60 miles South of Vancouver, B.C.) to check out a tulip farm as part of the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.

Did you know Washington state produces more tulips than anywhere else in the world, even Holland? It was rainy, windy, crowded, and muddy, but none of that mattered – the fields upon fields (spanning about 18 miles) of tulips of every shape, color, and variety were breathtaking. From afar, it looked like someone painted the candy colored fields.

If you’re ever traveling through the west coast in April, I highly recommend making a day trip to the tulip farm. We also recommend stopping by the nearby wineries for tastings and good deals ($5 bottles) – we had a designated driver so we were good to go. On another note, ladies please leave the stiletto heels at home – watching a young gal in her 4-inch heels in a short mini trekking through the farm while intermittently getting stuck in the mud was almost as entertaining as photographing the tulips.
