A Glimpse of Our Pacific Northwest Roadtrip

A Glimpse of Our Pacific NorthwestAlex and I took a ten day road trip back in May up to Spokane, WA for my little sister’s graduation from Gonzaga University.  We decided to take the long way traveling up the California Coast, the Oregon Coast, through Portland and Seattle and then over to Spokane.  Here is just a little glimpse of the first few days of traveling along the coast.

We started our drive by heading north on the 101 and we saw signs for a drive through tree.  We had to do it!  Corny, maybe but totally worth it.

Alex loves the beach so of course we had to stop and explore.  This beach was just north of Eureka near Humboldt State

The Sun was shinning in Oregon the next day however.  And after a pitcher of IPA we had to go to the beach and goof off.

The road trip was fantastic and this was just two days of the trip.  After this we headed into Portland to eat way too much and then to Seattle to drink too much with the graduate.  Then of course off to Spokane for the graduation.  We can’t wait to share the rest of this awesome trip with you!
