Yup, that’s right; you don’t have to travel to Europe to see beautiful tulips my friends! This spring I had the pleasure of attending the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in Mount Vernon, Washington. I just remember being so excited to see this natural wonder. I’d seen travel magazines and buzzfeed articles of the top places/things to see before you die, and the tulip fields have always caught my eye. Besides tulips being my favorite flower, the nature lover in me had to see this natural phenomenon for myself. Being mesmerized by thousands of colorful tulips with Washington’s mountainous landscape as a backdrop was quite an experience.
