I’m not a gardener.
You most certainly won’t find me in the yard cutting grass, or crouched near a patch of soil pulling weeds and planting flowers.
Imagine my parents’ surprise then, when I suggested we head north for the final weekend of the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.
Flowers have never really been my thing, but after my April 26 exploration of the blooming tulip fields, I certainly have a new appreciation for the beauty of all things flora.

Weekend Wanderer set out mid-April for Sun Lakes/Dry Falls State Park, about a 200-mile drive from Issaquah. The clouds hung low over the mountains on Snoqualmie Pass, barely shielding their beauty, like the sheer nightgown of a bashful bride.
Somewhere near Easton, the sun began its struggle with the clouds to dominate the sky. It won east of Ellensburg.
Why Sun Lakes/Dry Falls State Park? Start with the name, sun, and add camping, swimming, fishing, golfing, sightseeing and a place to research your kid’s science project on Washington archeology.
