On Top of Washington State
We traveled up to Hurricane Ridge from Hoodsport, Washington while our younger daughter and her niece were visiting.
Its a pretty long ride, but we arrived in the afternoon and took some pictures and a short hike near the visitor’s center. It wasn’t windy that day, but this area gets horrible wind at times, thus its name.
We’ve Never Seen So Many Deer in One Place
The Sky & Clouds Were Lovely and Ever Changing
The Short Trail We Took Was Paved and Wheel Chair Accessible. You can see mountains, valleys, waterways and all the way to Canada.
Wildflowers Along the Path
Olympic National Park and Forest areas are very large and there is no central road that criss crosses the park and/or forest. Instead there are many entrances, each having different ecology, geology and climate. For a lover of all things nature, its like opening a present at each new turn-off. Our National Parks belong to all Americans. They are a living present from John Muir, Teddy Roosevelt and many others who fought to put these lands aside for us and our visitors from around the world.
