Silver Lake, Washington

As described yesterday, we had to slightly change the #PGBackPacking plan. Originally we had planned to hike to Monte Cristo, and from there to Silver Lake. Stay at the lake over night, and do a day hike to Twin Lakes.

When we arrived at Monte Cristo, it became clear that we won’t make it to Silver Lake in daylight. We decided to camp in Monte Cristo, and hike to Silver Lake and Twin Lakes the next day. Turns out that was the right decision to do.


Whatcom Falls, Bellingham

Originally we had plans to go to Vancouver BC from Seattle, but we cancelled this part in the last moment. Instead we opted for a countryside tour to Bellingham, and staying an additional day in the hotel and at the pool. From Redmond we followed the WA-9 and left it near Everett, where we followed the Marine Dr along the coast. In Conway we switched over to the Fir Island Rd heading west, and from there on the Best Rd heading north. Eventually this got us on the scenic WA State Route 11, which leads directly into Bellingham.

As mentioned before, we spent a day on the pool, and on the second day we headed over to Command Prompt, in order to prepare the #PGBackPacking trip. After shopping and packing was done, we used the remaining time to visit the Whatcom Falls nearby.


The Piano Guys and Multnomah Falls

After just walking around in Portland the previous day, for today we are scheduled for another highlight of this vacation: a The Piano Guys concert in Seattle/Redmond.


The Twilight Tour

Going to Washington (State), Andrea asked if we can visit the places where the Twilight novels take place. Basically Port Angeles, Forks, La Push and Olympia. That’s too much for one day, so we settled on a roundtrip around the Olympic National Park for one day, and Olympia for another day. That is also the reason why we travelled to Bremerton the day before: just to shorten the trip for today.
