Wow, the Pacific Northwest does not disappoint! Views, nature, blooming flowers, water, TREES…it’s quite spectacular. And we’ve been able to get some awesome exploring in.
Here’s the highlight reel of one of our recent trips:
- Sequim, WA (pronounced squim): awesome dry(er) region on the peninsula that is the largest producer of lavender in the U.S.
- Heart o’ the Hills campground: awesome, multi-loop campground in the forest with access to some great hiking
- Elwha River: we hiked to an awesome rock formation for some great climbing up the side of the river walls
- Tongue Point Marine Reserve: I just had to view this natural spectacle in person.
- Lyre River campground: this is a Dept of Natural Resources campground with only 11 sites. Reservations are unavailable, however we arrived on a weekday early afternoon and had our choice of about 4 sites.
- Port Angeles, WA: fabulous food, adorable downtown, easy port to navigate and point of departure for our first B.C. ferry voyage.
- Sooke Potholes campground: Fairly remote, basic campground with trails winding in/out all over the place and adjacent to the Sooke River. The Potholes are naturally formed swimming holes which have been carved into the rockbed. Quite a feast for the mind, body and soul, as well as the eyes.
- Sidney, B.C.: beautiful port of entry for our ferry trip through the San Juan Islands on our way back to WA.
