Daytrip to the Skagit Valley and the North Cascades Highway for landscape photography

I love where we live in the Pacific Northwest! In just three hours or less you can explore mountain ranges, lush agricultural valleys, seashore, and more!

Snow topped Sauk Mountain over the Skagit River

We stopped in Edison, WA and ate delicious paella outside at Slough Food's sundeck. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

 The scenery along the North Cascades Highway is breathtaking!

 I'm told the wildflower trail up to Mount Sauk is beautiful in July

On St. Patrick's Day, we photographed the daffodils in the Skagit Valley and drove to Concrete, Washington, to see a portion of the beautiful North Cascades Highway. Can't wait to explore more of this region once the entire highway re-opens. Portions of the North Cascades Highway closes due to snow every year.
