So this is the report of the last trip. Mats and I took the Amtrak train to Seattle. 46 hours in a row. It was magical. After that we rented a car in Seattle and spent 3 days in Olympic National Park. Then, we took the bus to Portland to visit Matthew, Marcia and Ann. We went hiking to Mt. Hood, as well as camping next to Salmon river. And yesterday we took the Spirit airlines rocket back to Chicago.
