The church council told me to take a couple of days off this week following a busy Holy Week, so I took their advice. It was a nice day outside, so we decided to go for a drive and check out the tulips in the fields of Skagit County near Mt. Vernon. It's about a half hour drive north on I-5 for us. Every year a big festival is held in April around the time the tulips bloom. The whole valley becomes quite the tourist haunt.
Here's a couple of tourists enjoying the tulip fields. Mt. Baker was supposed to be in the background, but it kind of got lost in the haze.
