Last weekend I drove up to the Skagit Valley with my parents and youngest son. It's becoming a fall tradition. First we stopped for donuts at my favorite donut place anywhere - The Donut House in Anacortes (2719 Commercial Ave).
After we pigged out on donuts we took the short hike to Whistle Lake in the Anacortes Forest Lands. The bigleaf maples were at their peak color.
We stopped at Tulip Town to buy bulbs. The best, biggest, and choicest bulbs are had right here from the grower.
We finished the day at the Skagit River Brewery for dinner and beers. Quality time with my folks who aren't getting any younger.
