many random, odds and ends the Market streets and underground have to offer. Did I mention random and odd? 🙂 The streets are lined with vendors of all sorts. Two of my favorites are the endless amounts of colorful and fresh produce stands! You’d be amazed at what you can find! My other favorite, the rows and rows of fresh cut flowers with eye-catching colors you’d swear were painted by hand on each individual petal. My sweet lil’ hubby must’ve picked up on my awe-struck fascination with the flowers because he spontaneously bought me a few to take home. Chivalry is not dead with this man.
Y’all know what those rocks are off in the distance?! I’ll give you a hint … ‘Heyyy youuu guyysss!!’
This is Quinault Lake inside the Park. We stopped here for a yummy bagged lunch with a lake side view.
This is the same plant as the lake shot below, with yellow blooms sprouting out … except these were Jurassic Park-sized! As we made our way into the National Park we pulled into the Information Center to get a Cliffs Notes version of this spectacular place! I quickly told the lady our time frame and asked where we could find this said rainforest. She replied with a ‘honey, you’re in it!’ The entire park was the rainforest! What constitutes a rainforest from any other forest, you ask? Well, a rainforest needs an average of 100 inches of rain a year, this particular beast of a place brought in an average of 140 inches a year! (PSA for the day people, *the more you know*.)
This beautiful place is Multnomah Falls. It reaches a towering height of 620 feet and is the second highest year-round waterfall in the country! (and…. #4, you’re welcome 🙂
Below are a few other pics we snapped along our trip …
(I’m losing count … is that #5?!)
Geoff and I thoroughly enjoyed our time with his dad during his visit! I especially enjoyed just our time together, just us two, exploring the sites of WA State. It was so special to have that time with him. I honestly don’t know anyone else who’s gotten the chance to just drive, hang, and explore with their father-in-law like I did…it made for some pretty special memories I’ll always have to cherish. Thanks F-I-L for flying out here just to see us, hang out, and treat us with your company!
