The picturesque Rainbow Bridge, built in 1957, still crosses the Swinomish Slough on Pioneer Parkway in La Conner, WA about an hour north of Seattle. La Conner's many Victorian Era buildings are shown with Mt Baker in the background, towering above to almost 11,000 ft elevation.
"The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is one of the destination events for the Pacific Northwest, held from April 1-30. Every spring hundreds of thousands of people come to enjoy the celebration of spring as millions of tulips burst into bloom. As with all things governed by Mother Nature, the tulips bloom according to their own schedule sometime during the festival." The festival is held in nearby Mt. Vernon. http://www.tulipfestival.org/
