A month or so ago, Nick and I had scheduled a quick overnight up to Northern Washington. He needed to take some photos for work up in Burlington so we decided to make a trip out of it and visit some of the small towns and areas up in that area Washington State that we’ve wanted to get to for a long time. Long story short, wildfires were ravaging Oregon and Washington at the time and we decided to cancel our trip and do it another time. Fast forward a month and we needed to make it work so we decided late October would be beautiful in the area, packed an overnight bag and headed North for the first time since February.
One of the towns that has long been on my list to see in Washington State was Lynden, a tiny little Dutch town almost to the Canadian border. After visiting on this trip, I can honestly say that Lynden did not disappoint! This cute little enclave is complete with Dutch architecture, windmills and little shops and restaurants. It happened to be 36 degrees and pouring rain during our visit so we didn’t get to wander around as much as I would have liked, but if you’re looking for a scenic area, a cute little town and some Dutch charm, Lynden is just the place!
