The Olympic Peninsula

We left Portland early and drove towards Astoria by the coast. From there we drove across a long bridge over to Washington State and drove the highway 101 through the Olympic National Forest. We drove past the foggy coastline, a rainforest, snowy mountaintops and some clear water lakes. The nature here was beautiful, and would have been better experienced by camping than by driving the car right through it. But still, we were glad we took this route, because the views from the car were more than enough to impress us. We stayed at a roadside inn for one night and continued early on the next day through rest of the peninsula, and took a ferry from Kingston over to Edmonds, just north of Seattle. We arrived Seattle by mid-day and checked in at a downtown hotel.
