cranberryvino, I was moving pretty fast through Washington and am back home in LV now. The only hike I had time for was a quick, easy one--Hurricane Ridge trail in Olympic National Park. The scenery was spectacular, and I'd like to go there again some day.
I'm glad you got to come this way during a very beautiful time of the year. If you get back, plan on a little extra time and I can suggest some of the paths less worn for you to explore. The Northwest has a lot of them. Best, Cranberryvino
