Olympic Peninsula, WA

Some pictures from last week in the Olympic mountains. It was my first trip in the Pacific Northwest and was pretty awesome when you could get a view. The forest is just so dense that it's hard to find a spot to chill out with a view and lunch. Makes me miss Southern Utah, but is definitely a cool place to be. Finding good primitive camping spots aren't very easy to find but there are plenty of them out there. You just need to find a spur off of the forest road and investigate. I did find a really nice spot right off the south fork of the Hoh River. It was late when I got in and full moon was out. I would have taken some pictures of the river at night but I couldn't see much without my headlamp that I forgot. I'm glad didn't because the rocks were super slippery and the water was moving pretty quick.

ahh yes the hoh rainforest... i remember climbing mount olympus back in there. very nice photos. the olympic peninsula is pretty amazing. did you happen to make it back into the quinault rainforest? its pretty incredible back in there. The quinault lodge has the most amazing 'surf and turf' dinner with freshly caught wild salmon and locally raised beef with wild mushrooms from the quinault... just tasty. top it off with a nice petit syrah or pinot..

I didn't really get into the rainforest but did camp a few miles from the lake. I could barely see the lake through the trees from my campsite. There really is a lot to explore in the Olympics, I just got a bug up my ass to get out and camp a couple of nights.
