Northern Olympic Penninsula

Took a few days off and drove along scenic highway 112 from Port Angeles out to Neah Bay along the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Hiked down to secluded Shishi Beach on the Pacific Ocean. Drove up to Cape Flattery and hiked out to the NW tip of the lower 48 states. The next day we drove up to Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park. Hiked up to Hurricane Hill where we could see across the Strait of Juan de Fuca to Victoria on Vancouver Island and across Northern Puget Sound to see the San Juan Islands and Mt. Baker. Beautiful views. Pleased to see wildflowers were still blooming this late in the summer along with signs that fall is coming soon.
