Each year when spring finally arrives, I declare it to be my most favorite season. And although we didn't have a severe winter here in the Pacific Northwest, when the daffodils and tulips begin blooming and the cherry blossoms burst forth -- I'll be smiling. Here's a list of five places to visit in the springtime, images I captured during my travels. Depending on where you live, some are close to home, while others are farther afield.
