Pacific Northwest 2016

This month a few friends and I traveled to the Pacific Northwest, starting in San Francisco and making our way through Portland and Seattle then ending in Vancouver. ย It was such a great time!

A perfect place to grab breakfast in San Fran, the Ferry Building Marketplace

We had expectations of seeing Crater Lake…until we actually got to the park. ย It was snowing so hard we couldn’t see a thing from the lookouts. ย Not super disappointing since we still got pretty views of the trees with snow on them.
