Oh Canada!!

I've attempted writing this post a few different times and I'll say I've really struggled. A large part of that was not wanting to process that we are actually done.

Washington: How is this almost over?

Unbelievable to think we have traversed up to Washington already. When we were in Oregon it still seemed so far away and now I sit here, saddened to think how close the end is.
