Nice place and photos, but it looks a bit cold. Not too keen on that, coming from warm Australia.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

I am late in responding,asfter you left a comment at my place. You were in Issauquah when they had the gunfirght at Lake Sammamish State Park..this is so not the way it is at that park normally. I used to live down the street from it.

Your trip looked very fun, but that was a lot of traveling!
