So a few weeks ago my friend Sophia and I ventured out to what is now one of my favorite areas of the world, The Pacific Northwest. We ended up flying a total of 12 hours, driving about 16 hours (all Sophia, BLESS HER SWEET SOUL) and walking who knows how many miles. Every single second was worth it. We went to Portland, Seattle, The Gorge, Mt. Hood, Cannon Beach, La Push Beach, Granite Falls, and Cape Flattery. If you ever have a chance to go to the PNW, please go. I promise you won't regret it. Side note: Be sure to turn the quality up :)
