Some more photos from La Push. I feel like these capture the feeling of the place much better than the color pictures, but that might just be me or the mood I was in at the time.

(disclaimer: I am not a great travel photographer, nor will I ever claim to be one.)

We drove up the mountains to Hurricane Ridge for some mountain-viewing and hiking. It’s one of those places that is gorgeous but the middle-of-the-day photos just can’t do it justice.

Doesn’t this just make you want to start spinning around singing “The HILLS are ALIIIIVE…!”

You have to use a wrestling announcing voice: “Trees versus flowers, the final show-down!”

The wildlife was friendly:

Maybe a little too friendly:

Snow in August! Hooray!

There’s Canada in the background – and snow in the foreground:

Ski lift:

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.
