    Olympic Peninsula

    October 15, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 6 °C

    The pacific northwest is like an alien planet, something straight out of a movie. You can't even believe how tall and perfectly straight the trees are or how green and lush the forests are. The coastline looks like a Bob Ross painting from every angle. Much to my dismay the towns of Forks and La Push were not overrun with shirtless vampires and werewolves, just an unusually high number of bums for such small towns. We caught sight of one whale and a handful of seals but rainy windy weather made it hard to see much in the choppy waters. We hiked all over the peninsula in and out of Olympic National Park. The tidepools at Ruby beach, Hoh Rainforest and Sol Duc falls were highlights as well as hiking out to the most northwest point in the contiguous US, Cape Flattery. I got a text while there saying "Welcome to Canada!" 🤣 We would have stayed in this area for much longer but rainy weather forecasted for the next few weeks pushed us south.
