Virtual Vacation ~ Washington

My virtual vacation is in the great state of Washington. This is Mt. Rainer, isn't she beautiful! I once worked with a lady that hiked on this mountain and she swore she saw Big Foot!

This beautiful mountain is Mt. St. Helens. Mount St. Helens is most famous for it's catastrophic eruption in 1980. That is why it is now shaped like a horseshoe crater.

This scenic view is Port Angeles! Former NFL quarterback John Elway was born in Port Angeles.

Seattle is the largest city in Washington. All lite up at night it looks like jewels! Look at the beautiful Space Needle. It was built for the 1962 World's Fair.

This is the first Starbucks coffee house in Seattle! They have come a long way!

And since I am in Washington I have to stop by Forks, WA, which gained popularity by being the setting for the home town in the "Twilight" series written by Stephenie Meyer.

These are walking trails in nearby Olympic National Park! The average precipitation is 106.91 inches in a year. That's why the trees look like they are growing hair!

Some day I hope to go to Washington. It is a beautiful state. I think I may be drawn to it because of all the greenery. Since I have lived here in the Phoenix (Desert) all my life.
