We started off the day with a long drive though Port Angeles, then along shore of Lake Crescent, though unending trees, and finally over to the Washington coast near La Push. The Pacific coast up in Washington was beautiful and rugged.

Our voyage continued up into the mountains to the Hoh Rain Forest. We went on two hikes, the Hall of Mosses Trail and the Spruce Nature Trail. Unfortunately, I forgot my backup camera battery in the car, so I didn’t get to take as many photos as I would have liked.

After spending all afternoon hiking, we finished a big loop though most of western Washington, driving south along the 101 into Aberdeen, and then cutting inland and back to Bremerton. All together, we covered 420 miles in a little under 10 hours of driving.
