This feels like the appropriate moment to mention that the ONLY activity we had actually made reservations for during our trip up to Northern Washington was canceled because of morning fog. But we pivoted and got to experience Moran State Park on Orcas Island!
This wasn’t the vacation we had planned for months ago, BUT it’s the vacation we lived and we couldn’t complain.
Our trip to the North Cascades National Park was hindered only by the smoke and air quality. We arrived while the wildfires were raging in the west, so we kept most of our adventures light. First stop: the Trail of the Cedars.
You know the phrase “Sand everywhere!”? I say it ALL the time when we’re going to the beach, at the beach, coming home from the beach….. and this time when I said it, there wasn’t an ocean to be found. But frankly, there was sand EVERYWHERE. You can watch the video here!!
For short trips into Death Valley, these are two incredibly easy sights to see! Both are magical (in their own ways) and both have landscapes you won’t find many other places. You can watch our short video here!
We went to Death Valley National Park!!! If you follow us on the Insta or the Facebook, then you already know, but those that don’t, I’ve been wanting to tell you for AGES and now I can!!
Definitely check out the preview video on the YouTube. It has some extra content that we couldn’t find a home for in the longer videos. Also, why YES, that IS snow that you’re seeing in the video. It. Was. Bananas.
