Hurricane Ridge, Olympic National Park, Washington, USA

Woohoo! We’re on the Olympic peninsula and making good time!

When we reach the 101 we take a right to head west towards Port Angeles-

Elk crossing!

Welcome to Olympic National Park!

A quick blast up to Hurricane Ridge!

The road up to Hurricane Ridge is awesome on a bike!

We are excited to see snow!

Welcome to Hurricane Ridge!

What a view!!

Little guy want to play in the snow!

Interesting mix of bikes, eh?

Ha! You know where this is headed…

Snow ball fight!!

Hurricane Ridge is aptly named- very very windy up there! We ducked in to the Visitor Center to warm up and check things out-

Grabbed a Junior Ranger workbook for Kristhawee and then we headed back down the mountain.

Cool road with a bunch of tunnels-

Eric, riding his DR650, decides to take us on a “short cut”

Hmmm, that was fun on the heavy Land Yacht… NOT!

I was happy when we got back on pavement

We grabbed a quick lunch at the golden arches in Port Angeles, then pressed on!

The views along the shore of Lake Crescent are amazing!

After a long day in the saddle we finally made it to Lake Quinault! What a nice spot to camp!

Sunset-

Here’s Kristhawee with “Timo”, the Olympic Chipmunk that I got for him at the Visitor Center-

Here’s Dave testing out his new camping hammock that I picked up for him at Cabelas. Not so easy to find a hammock for a guy his size!

Kristhawee and I were very happy to see my aunt and uncle and cousins who had driven up from San Francisco and were heading to the St Juan Islands. Fantastic dinner of locally caught salmon then we lit off some fireworks as the 4th of July was fast approaching-

Firing off “Bootle Rockets” as Kristhawee called them

Sparklers are always good fun-

My cousin Rochelle showing off her slack line skills!

Dave was ready to pass out but Kristhawee decided to sneak in to his hammock and the ensuing struggle had us all rolling with laughter-

My cousin Sean showing Kristhawee how to walk a slack line- it’s WAY harder than it looks!!

It was getting late and we’d had a long day, so we called it a night!
