It's not every day you can walk THROUGH a tree stump. But that's exactly what you can do if you stop along northbound I-5 at the Smokey Point Rest Stop.

There's also a larger than normal dog restroom (i.e. grassy area) to go along with the well-kept human facilities.

And if it's REALLY your lucky day, you'll encounter volunteers passing out coffee and cookies.

Smokey Point was selected Best Rest Stop by the voters of the Pacific Northwest in the 2017 Best Northwest Escapes thanks to its giant stump!
