Skagit Valley Tulips

Yet another tulip field, this time from arguable the most famous tulip growing region in Washington, Skagit Valley.  This area about an hour north of Seattle still has a large number of tulip farms, so people drive up here and either drive or bike a large tour route through the fields.  We didn't have a lot of time to visit here, just a short excursion from a trip to Seattle.  And I didn't anticipate how very crowded these country roads would be with cars.  If I drive up here again next year, it will be on a weekday, and earlier in the morning.  Probably the most vibrantly colored fields I've seen all year.  Too bad for the hazy weather!
