Olympic

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…
