After much deliberation about where to go for our vacation Washington/Oregon, Montana/Wyoming, or even Cabo San Lucas, we decided to fly to Washington to see the Olympic National Park, Victoria and Columbia River Gorge. This best fitted our 7-day trip. We visited many interesting places, some in the middle of a rain forest, others in the Capitol building of a state, yet some in a royal museum. As always, I erred on the side of taking too many pictures at too long of a time span in a day. As I have time, I'll share pictures from these interesting locations. For the time being, following is the list of the places we stopped by:
