Ten days and nearly six thousand miles later, we have returned from our most active vacation since our three kids came along. While we don’t mind traveling long distances, we had become accustomed to staying put once we arrived at our vacation spot – usually on the beach. This year, we were on the go on a different sort of holiday – a three-state trek through Idaho, Oregon and Washington. Over the past two weeks, I have written of our travels through Idaho and Oregon. This week is the third and final installment – the state of Washington.
PART THREE – WASHINGTON
After many days of travel through Idaho and Oregon, we had come full circle. We were back in Seattle, where we first took our bags off the airport carousel and loaded them into a rented minivan for the long drive to Boise.
For our children, this vacation was about “firsts” every step of the way: first sighting of the Pacific Ocean, first glimpse of the Rocky Mountains and first time in a high desert climate.
