    Humptulips Washington

    Humptulips?! Told you it was about to get juvenile... But, dont worry, the western Washington town got its name from a totallyinnocentsounding Native American phrase meaning hard to pole. Interpret that phrase as you will, but its likely our Native American friends were referring to the difficulty of parking their canoes in this town. Super small town: There are only 60 families here, so youll either fear xenophobia or consider yourself welcomed to diversify the gene pool. Either way, its nice to bring flowers the first time you visit your neighbors.
