Ferndale was not in the original itinerary; we had planned to spend the week touring Northern Exposure Country near Roslyn and Cle Elum, but for a variety of reasons we changed our plan last minute and decided to go north to the Canadian border instead. We ended up having a pretty nice week! Wetlands, low tide, volcanos, glaciers, swimming, BBQ, cribbage, flower photography, and passport applications, oh my!

Sweetly goofing off at the passport office!
