So, that's just what we did. Saturday morning, we packed the family (including one Au Pair and one mother-in-law) into the van and headed for the extreme Pacific Northwest.
Forks, WA is about what you'd expect. Not much there other than a few spectacular rainbows. We went searching for the high school, but didn't find it. Just west of Forks is La Push, which was featured in the movie. It's even better than you'd imagine. It felt other-worldly. The only place I've felt that way was when we were on the volcano in Hawaii.
Other than a little boredom after such a long drive, I think everyone had a blast.
The next day we hit Cape Flattery, which is the furthest northwest you can get in the continental US. We loved the view across the Strait of Juan de Fuca to the Canadian mountains.
