Tiptoe Through the Tulips

For anyone who lives in Skagit County, or even in the whole Northwest, it goes without saying that we live in one of the most beautiful places in the world (although it is sometimes worth reminding ourselves of when it has rained for 12 days straight). Tulip time in Skagit County might as well serve as the poster child for the Northwest's beauty, if you ask me.

It wasn't until 2 years ago that I visited the tulips the first time. Of course I had driven through from time to time, but I had never stopped. Since then, I've tried not to miss snapping at least one picture per year. (It makes for a perfect backdrop.) Today, with an out-of- towner in tow, Dave and I played toured guide. He played professional photographer while I attempted to follow his lead. While photography might not be my thing, at least I can do fun computery stuff with pictures. Check out this panorama (Java required).

funny the posterchild for the northwest is a non native ugly hybrib tulip. I could see it being the posterchild for traffic and general misery for anyone driving in the valley...its colorful but i dont see any beauty lurking there. What say you wren i have a hard time believing you are pro tulip festival. Seems like a waste of good farm land to me.

Those are beautiful! They really should make a festival out of those....How many tourists did you have to elbow out of the way to get those nice shots? It looks like you missed one in your panaroma, sorta looks like Dave Clumpner!
