The Pacific Northwest Road Trip

At the end of June Anil and I went for a 10-day road trip through the Pacific Northwest. This trip yet again reminded us how lucky we are to live on the unbelievably beautiful western coast of the US. How amazing it is to visit a rain forest, play in the dunes and hike in the snow-covered mountains during the same short trip!?!

Below is the approximate map of our route and the list of the upcoming blog posts describing in detail our adventures during the trip:
