Seattle Trip Part 1: Monday

Hello! I'm Laura, and I'm here to tell you about my roadtrip to Seattle with three of my closest friends. My plan is to devote one or two blog posts to each day of our trip. I will share with you some pictures, as well as what we did each day. Are you ready to go on a virtual roadtrip? Fasten your virtual seatbelt, and let's go!

We loaded up the car, and departed on our journey, excited for the adventures that were sure to lie ahead. We were armed with lots of snacks (thanks to Sarah) and were fairly well rested. We loaded the CD player with a VeggieTales CD, and began the drive across the great state of Washington.

On the side of I-90, up on a hill, is a Wild Horses Memorial - a whole bunch of metal horses line the top of the hill in memory of the wild horses that used to roam the area. Visitors can hike to the top of the hill and even climb up on the horses, all the while overlooking the magnificent Columbia River. We decided to stop at this spot to eat our lunch, (Sarah made us some amazing Curry Chicken Salad!) and we spent over an hour eating, climbing on the horses and taking pictures. However, before long it was time to be on our way again.

The journey westward was going well, with smooth sailing, until this point. However, lest we should get the early impression that this trip would be flawless, in the next 2+ hours we traversed a grand total of 30 miles - 6 of those miles were covered over a 45-minute period. Yes, traffic was bad. :) I tried to keep myself amused by taking random pictures, logging in our notebook about where we were, and we continued to listen to music. Once we got to the base of Snoqualmie Pass, it was, once again, smooth sailing. . .but by then we were tired, bored, and starting to get a bit frustrated with traffic.

We arrived at my cousins' house, where we stayed for the first night of our adventure. We ate a tasty dinner of hamburgers and potato salad, went for a walk, and then enjoyed a mint ice cream dessert. We collapsed into bed later that night, tired, but excited about what the rest of the week would bring.

Stay Tuned For Part 2. . .
