After the Eclipse red carpet in LA we took a trip up the coast to Forks and La Push Washington. Forks is a tiny town now made famous from the Twilight Saga. Some of the towns people are a bit annoyed by the fame but the local businesses are very happy. Many said they were on the verge of backruptcy before Twilight.

The familiar Forks welcome sign and some other fun signs we saw in La Push

There are stores for Twifans as well as restraunts that have Twilight menus.

We were there on the 4th of July and the prade featured a Twilight themed float! The welcome center had a "Bella" car and maps around Forks to find all the places Stephenie Meyers talks about in the books.

La Push and 1st Beach were very pretty. I picked up some driftwood and rock as souvenirs.

We stop at Kalama Highschool on our way to Forks. It was use as Forks Highschool in the movies.

It was a great trip! If you are in the area it is worth the visit!

Judy, I met you in Detroit at the Monkey's concert this past winter!!! I saw you on some fan coverage of the Premiere. Looks like you and your daughter are having a wonderful time. I hope to get to Forks one day, as well as the BD premieres!!!

I was in Portland in May and there was a billboard with twilight font that read, "BUCKLE UP, YOU ARE NOT IMMORTAL." It definitely made my trip.
