Olafo,

You might try going up to the Skagit Valley to view the tulip fields. 
Due to our record cold spring this year the bloom is at least 2 weeks 
late and so there may still be quite a bit of color the first week of 
May. Quite nice with the snow capped peaks as a backdrop. However they 
may have topped the flowers by then so check first. 
<http://www.tulipfestival.org/>  Close by visit LaConner, Deception Pass 
bridge and Fir Island for migrating birds.  Of course you can take a 
ferry ride out here to the islands. Vancouver is a pretty long drive 
from Seattle plus add more time at the border. Mt Rainier is buried in 
many, many meters of snow and is best viewed from a distance. Weather 
permitting, a trip to the Mt Baker ski area is more scenic. They had 
more than 5 meters at the lodge last I heard and is well worth the drive 
on a clear day. Snoqualmie Pass isn't too scenic IMHO but Snoqualmie 
Falls are worth a look.

Shop for camera gear at B&H and ship to your sister.

Mike
