|I love hiking and exploring!|
When I visited the Olympic Peninsula, we drove from the Kitsap Peninsula, across the Hood Canal Bridge to the Olympic Peninsula and started exploring. I got to see totem poles at the Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe’s art gallery near Sequim. They have a nice parking lot with carvings and views of the bay.
Last year I got to stay at the beautiful Kalaloch Lodge right on the ocean. I climbed over driftwood on the beach and waited patiently for a bit of salmon when my owner returned from dining in their restaurant. Since we had our own cabin with a carport, things were really convenient. I even saw a rabbit on the lawn outside our sliding glass door.

I got some tastes of salmon afterward!
There is much more for me to see on the Olympic Peninsula. Now, I still can’t go hiking in the Hoh Rain Forest because it is in the National Park (National Parks are different from National Forests), but there are places in Olympic National Park I CAN GO. I can:
- Enjoy the campgrounds, picnic areas, and parking lots.
- Hike the Spruce Railroad Trail (Olympic Discovery Trail)
- Enjoy Rialto Beach one-half mile north to Ellen Creek
- Explore all Kalaloch beaches (from Ruby Beach south to South Beach)
- Hike the Peabody Creek Trail

|I think I'd love a stay at Crescent Lake Lodge!|
|Here's another beach that looks like fun.|
But we couldn't bring Francesca because she knock all the stones off the log!
