Friday morning dawned clear, and a glance out our bedroom window revealed a bright blue sky and a mighty white peak.
We drove out of the park, glancing back from time to time to glimpse the peak over the farm fields until we turned our sights northwest to the Olympic Peninsula. We followed Rt 101 which winds around the coastline. It was a beautiful drive. We stopped from time to time, and picnicked along the way.
We wound past Crescent Lake on our way to the Sol Duk Hot Springs Lodge. As we turned down the road and followed the Sol Duk River, the trees soared on either side. It felt like we were driving through a city block lined with tree skyscrapers.
