West Coast

Seattle, WA
 This is the first big city of the West Coast, Seattle, Washington. As usual, it's raining. Almost like a storm is coming... After parking at a REI, we went shopping. Seb decided to buy a new raincoat that seemed way better than the old one. Ready to put it to the test, we walked outside and... there is the sun!
Nice view from the Space Needle.
Crescent Lake, Olympic National Park, WA


Hall of Mosses 
Mount St Helens, Wa.
We tried to see Mount St Helens but mountain weather is unpredictable. This is where the road ends in ''winter''. With a 15C temperature at the bottom we had a hard time believing it but I guess we will have to come back to see it.

Crescent City, CA
Crescent City was a nice quiet town on the west coast. Our first town entering California from the north and our first beach.

Jedediah Smith Redwood State Park
The park is amazing with its narrow dirt road going through giant trees. It's almost unreal. It is just about 10 miles long but really worth the detour.

Big Tree
This is one of the biggest tree we saw on the west coast. It is really impressive to think that they were already there when the vikings discovered America.

West Coast Cliffs



Light House

West Coats road
The road was amazing. That's when you are missing the sports car. The view is also impressive with beaches, cliffs and the ocean.

Departure Day

This is the last moment in Fort St John for a while... We are now ready to leave this little town we called home for almost 5 years. It was a great adventure to move here and have a new start from nothing. We both had great jobs here, met a lot of interesting people and had fun. We moved here with a car full of stuff, we filled a house with stuff, we sold everything and we are now leaving with a backpack full. It is the beginning  of  our road trip to Qu├ębec via San Francisco and a few National Parks.
