Day 9 of Road Trip 2011



This day was a pretty heavy driving day! Was up at 4:00am pst and was out of Spokane by 5:00am.  It was about a 4.5 hour drive to Seattle and it was a gorgeous drive.  Spicy arrived safe and sound and as soon as she landed we were on our way to Forks, Washington.  GPS surprised us and took us to a Ferry Boat, which was pretty fun. 

Made it to Forks with no problems. Of course, it is beautiful. Giant pine trees, beautiful lakes and lots of mountains.  Ugh, so pretty.  And then the Twilight madness begins.  Stopped at every Twilight related sight we saw.  Stopped in the Forks Chamber of Commerce and I think it was there I realized that this whole town is in a giant Twilight bubble.  It really boggled my mind how Twilight intense everything was.  I guess I knew it would be but when the Chamber of Commerce lady says she doesn't have information on anything except Twilight it was a bit weird.  This coming from a crazy Twilight fan. 

Tomorrow Spicy and I are going to explore some of the beaches near Forks (LaPush and Rialto), check out the Police Station (apparently they have some Chief Swan garb) and then go to the Hoh Rainforest.  See...it isn't ALL Twilight! 

This place...is beautiful...and a bit nuts. Nuts in a crazy-good way!

Working on our plan for tomorrow.

  1. This post cracked me up, because many years ago, I went to the town in Washington (actually not far from Seattle) where they filmed the TV show "Twin Peaks." It was the same situation, with everything in the town centered around the show...
