CINDY:  We’re leaving sleepy little Port Angeles tomorrow and heading on around the west side of the Washington coast.  Olympic National Park is kinda hard to visit.  It is basically the entire NW peninsula of Washington.  The only way to see the interior of this immense park is to hike your ass in – which we obviously have no inclination or ability to do.  So we’re just slowly working our way around the perimeter, taking day trips into paved areas and walking trails to waterfalls (cause I think they’re pretty).

Some of the steepest trails WOULD have made us stop and suck eggs, but those little old ladies with walkers passing us were a big incentive to suck it up and keep going.

The trails and the forests  are gorgeous, but photos do no justice to the size of these trees.  Heading to the Hoh Rain Forest area tomorrow and will work our way down the park’s beaches on the west coast.
