The Great North West….

We are currently in Port Angeles, Washington, staying at a KOA RV Park tonight and will catch the 8:20 am. Coho Ferry to Victoria tomorrow morning.  If all goes well we should be home by noon tomorrow!

As I walked the pups around the park for their last walk of the day I snapped a few pictures for you to see what the great North West is like…a little different than the desert!

Giant fir trees instead of cactus…


and don’t forget the mighty cedar…ahhh smells wonderful!!


Lots of cute little signs so that you don’t get lost in the woods….

P1070570 Grass instead of sand…

P1070571 Salal covers the forest floor…instead of tumble weed..  P1070574  Dandelions instead of gorgeous desert wild flowers….P1070576  Tulips instead of flowering cactus….


Flowering cherry trees instead of flowering yuccas….

P1070579  Spring rockery flowers instead of more wild flowers…P1070581 P1070583

Totem Poles instead of Palm Trees….


And BIG bears instead of Road Runners…


AND did I mention RAIN instead of sun!! 

Are we there yet?


Just give me a dog park and I’m happy!!  I even like washes..dry washes that is…it’s a little cold here and my feet are wet!!
