our washington state vacation.

A few weeks ago, my husband and I went on vacation to the beautiful state of Washington. I have this goal to visit every national park in the United States, so we knocked out three on this trip! We had an amazing time, put lots of miles on our rental car, and enjoyed the great outdoors for a week.

We flew into Seattle, picked up our rental car, and drove to North Cascades National Park. We were there two days and then drove to Mt. Rainier National Park for two more days. The next two days were spent at Olympic National Park and our last day we explored the city of Seattle before flying back home.

We saw some incredible scenery, some of it seemed like it was straight out of a story book. Mt. Rainier is over 14,000 ft tall so it was quite humbly to stand in front of it. I always love trips out west; it is so beautiful there.

Here are a few pictures from our trip:
