The 27th Annual Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, this past weekend, drew a lot of people to the Skagit Valley, with cars backing up on Interstate 5 at the downtown Mount Vernon Kincaid Street exit.
It has been over 10 years since I've been in the Skagit Valley and out on the flats to see the Tulips and the throngs of tourists.
This year's Skagit Valley Tulip Festival runs from April 1 through April 30.
So, I still have 18 days to get myself north to see one of the most fertile valley's in the world in all its colorful glory.
That may not happen. Below are a few pictures that brought to mind how incredible the Skagit Valley looks each and every Spring...
