Our Trip to the Pacific Northwest

Our family just returned from a week-long, pre-Thanksgiving trip to Washington State to spend time enjoying God’s creation, as well as visiting relatives in the Port Angeles-Sequim area. Getting there involves almost every mode of transportation imaginable: airplane, subway train, rental car and ferry boat (and sometimes a shuttle bus, but not this time, thankfully). The girls did amazingly well despite the rigorous travel day and the two-hour difference in time.

One special highlight was re-visiting Sol Duc Falls, where Michael and I got engaged in 1995. Although we’ve made more than half a dozen trips to Washington since then, this was our first trip back to that exact spot, and it was all the more sweeter to have the girls there with us. They loved searching for fairy homes in the rainforest as we hiked 0.8 miles to the falls.

Here are some photos from the journey. Praise be to God for His glorious creation!
