Find serenity among the tulips — or just take a quiet hike

Need peace of mind? Go ponder a perfect tulip bloom. (photo by Ken Lambert/The Seattle Times)

It’s officially tulip time. Washington Bulb Co. has “lit up” the first tulip fields on its bloom map of the Skagit Valley. Eleven fields of daffodils remain in bloom around the valley as well.

It might be a good time to go commune with nature and find some peace and beauty in the world. But go on a weekday if you want a bit of solitude; the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival draws crowds on weekends through April. (If you want to make an overnight trip, maybe stay in La Conner.)

Want to connect with nature closer to home? Take a walk on Discovery Park’s recently renovated North Beach Trail. See Tan Vinh’s story here.
