Olympic Peninsula

Last week I took a few days off and toured the Olympic Peninsula with Kari who is originally from Norway. A couple years ago I met Kari at the Seattle Astronomy Club of which her husband is a member.

We both like to travel and she accepted my proposal to explore together the unique countryside of Washington State. Though I have been living here for almost 19 years, I actually haven’t seen many places in this state. Therefore I thought that it is time to get out and explore more of this great place, which offers anything from rain forest to the desert.

Our trip lasted only 2 1/2 days, but we drove around the Peninsula, stayed overnight in two motels, in Port Townsend and Forks, and visited some splendid places including Cape Flattery, which is the furthest northwest point of the contiguous United States. Pictures of this tour and some additional tourist information are posted under the page Out & About.
