Jul 16, 2015 - While in Sekiu--Fog, Wind, Sunshine

Sekiu is a typical small fishing town. It's all about the salmon run. It must be a ghost town in winter. AT&T has no service here, and Verizon is sometimes. Tuesday, July 14--Fog was the word of the day. We left the dock at 6:30 or so, and it was foggy. Butch's boat has all the necessary electronics to navigate in the fog. But it would be nice to see where you are going, right?? In a little while the fog lifted off the surface, so you could see a little better, but just a little. Not much action with the fish, a few small salmon called...

Jul 12, 2015 - Sekiu, WA

Daily Mileage--115 Total Trip Mileage--1274 The Aire is parked at Elks Lodge in Beaverton, OR. Lodge number 1989 Sat. July 11--We left Phil and Susan's home at 8:30AM and traveled a short distance to Beaverton, OR. This was our first disappointment at an Elk'l Lodge this trip. The Beaverton, OR Lodge property had been sold, and their website did not mention that the entrance to the lodge had been moved. Unhook, back up a half a block to turn around, and go around the block. In a couple of months they will build a new building, but for now...

Summer Trippin'

Jun 6, 2012 - Cape Flattery. Washington

We have had a great few days driving up the Washington coast. What beautiful rugged scenery. We spent two days in Ilwaco, Wash. in a nice Coast to Coast Resort which gave us some down time from driving and also a chance to get some laundry done. It was a nice and quiet place since no kids are out of school yet. We traveled today to the most north western point in the lower 48 states at Cape Flattery, Wash. It is at the mouth of the Strait of Juan DE Fuca which also borders Canada. From the campsite we are currently at along the bay, we can...

Sep 27, 2009 - The Spectacular Olympic Peninsula

QUINAULT RAIN FOREST, HOH RAIN FOREST, AND SOUTH BEACH: We decide to stay another night at Olson’s, enjoying the view at Clallam Bay, and driving the narrow roads with “Frosty”, our towed Subaru. We take a nice drive down the coast around Lake Quinault and the Quinault Rain Forest (which averages 12 feet of rain a year), enjoying a picnic on the lake. We then explore Kalaloch and South Beach campgrounds; both are lovely but we decide we would prefer camping at South Beach (requiring that we have our own water) on a future trip. The...

Sep 25, 2009 - Olympic National Park and Cape Flattery

OLYMPIC PENINSULA NATIONAL PARK: The national park seems to offer many terrific views, both of the sea and forests. We are particularly impressed by the ruggedness of the Park’s coastline; many lonely rock formations testify to the ocean’s powerful effects on the terrain. We spend Thursday night at the Clallum County Salt Creek Campground, facing the Juan de Fuca Strait and enjoy a short walk both as the sun sets and as it rises the next morning (we only posted a few of the pictures, which everyone knows can’t really capture the experience...

May 17, 2006 - Up the Washington coast

We left Quinault casino at Ocean shores and drove past Quinault Lake( a glacier lake) and while reading about it, learned that the snow covered mountain at the end of the lake in my picture is Mount Anderson-my family name. Stopped in Forks,Wa. at the Forks Timber museum and information center. Dave enjoyed the history of logging displays and we got lots of info on the area-now to plan. The HOH rain forest is one of only 3 places in the world where rain forests are. We had the Teton hooked on so didn't have space to stop and take trails but...

May 11, 2006 - First Day in Olympic National Park

This morning we backtracked about 10 miles to go to the HOH Rain Forest in Olympia National Park. The Park is huge and there are several places that you go in and then drive back out. There is no road that goes across the entire park. Most of the park is mountain and forest but there are several miles along the shore that is part of the Park. Of course it wouldn't see right if we went to the rain forest on a sunny day and we didn't want to do anything that wasn't right so we started out in the rain. When we got to the Visitors Center we...
