Heading South on Highway 101

We left Port Townsend and headed south on Highway 101, making our way to a family cabin just south of Brinnon, Washington, along Hood Canal. Above are two images of Hood Canal and one of our son, Ian, cleaning off the roof of he cabin. I usually have the roof duty, but this Spring I didn’t make it up for cleaning, etc. The cabin is surrounded by tall evergreens.

Moving Along

From Lake Crescent we traveled to Port Townsend. There was a park and ride spot just outside the main business district which we used. We caught a shuttle bus into the main part of town.

These are just some street shots of main street Port Townsend, plus the shot from the cab of the Mothership of Highway 101.

Hoh Rainforest

Moss dripping from large trees and huge ferns on the forest floor. There was a nice hike from the Rangers Station to the Hoh River. We arrived in the mid morning time frame and there was already quite a few people parked and hiking the trail; people from all over the world. As we left around 2:00pm there was a lineup of vehicles, at least 60, waiting to get into the park.

It’s a pretty amazing place and well worth your time to drive 16 miles from Highway 101, on a very winding road, to reach the this National Park.

More from the Beach at Kalaloch

The tide was out so we were able to see some interesting things walking the beach. Felt like a private beach as there were hardly anyone else in sight ( as you can see).

More from the Olympic Peninsula to follow.

Adventure#2: Olympic Peninsula

Our first night out we spent at Kalaloch Beach. Our site was within a short walking distance from the Pacific Ocean. Basically “roughing it” as we had no hookups. Pretty rustic, but secluded. Our Brooklyn grandson, Elliott, above hanging out with grandma on the beach. The steps down to the beach are behind that wall of large driftwood.

Was a fun night.

Adventure#2 to be continued.
