We spent the last week on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state. Enough sunshine sneaked into the standard, overcast days to make it all a pleasant treat. From tree farms, international ports to a diverse national park we’ve seen a bit of everything. Alpine meadows, glaciated peaks, temperate rain forests to an ocean shore this park has everything. And as beautiful as the park is, it doesn’t see a lot of visitors. Most of the license plates read Washington, after all there is a huge population center on the other side of Puget Sound. Even then, the area still doesn’t feel as overrun as a Zion or the Smokies. Oh well, more of the good stuff for us to enjoy.
The diversity of the place kept us here all week. Enjoy the pictoral tour…

Solitude with a view along the Hoh River
You never know what you’ll find in a tidal pool
Might as well jump
And they say it’s always rainy in the Pacific Northwest
