We took a road trip from Seattle to the unbelievably gorgeous Olympic Peninsula. I have a lot more pictures of specific places, but these are those ones that are more from the road trip part.

Crispy took this one as we crossed the bridge:

This was just randomly on the side of the road. Of course we had to stop and take pictures:

My bestest friends, Crispy and Kathleen:

Sometimes you just can’t trust your GPS app. This is, literally, the end of the road:

They’re so nice. Waiting patiently for me to finish taking pictures:

We stayed overnight in a hotel and the next morning were very excited to see Elk grazing outside our window:

Well, they were across the highway, but still – pretty cool:

Hahahaha. We went through Forks, where the Twilight books take place, and thought this sign was really funny:

I LOVE FISH N CHIPS. Especially when I’m near the ocean.

We stopped by a winery to sample the local wine (mmmm…wine…)

I love drinking wine with an amazing view in unbelievably gorgeous weather:

Mountains everywhere! (This was actually taken from the beach. How often do you go to a beach with a snow-capped mountain in the distance??)

Random mountain flower:

This picture doesn’t really do this justice – as we were driving we saw the clouds settled in the valley of the mountains and it looked really cool, so we stopped to take pictures:

In case you were wondering how cool I am:

I was going to do a whole series of poses/faces but a car drove by and I couldn’t stop laughing. Ah. I’m so cool.

I was torn between posting the pictures from my Seattle/Washington trip and the pictures from my New England/Fall trip. In the end Seattle won, partly because it happened first, but mostly because I forgot I already did the majority of the editing a couple of months ago. I’m going to post them somewhat out of order, and possibly backwards. I haven’t totally decided yet.

Here is one of my favorite views of Seattle:

And here are a few from further down Alki Beach, a little bit earlier:

I’m going to do my best to get them all up before the end of the year so I can move on to New England photos.
