A few days ago I went to Olympic National Park during my vacation to Washington State. While the mountains here weren’t quite as epic as Mt. Rainier, they were still beautiful with sweeping views of this portion of the range!
The day started out with getting picked up by our Viator tour for the day and going on the ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge Island. Then, it was a 2 hour drive (with a stop to pick up sandwiches for lunch) to Olympic National Park. At the park we went to Hurricane Ridge where there were gorgeous views, a beach that has this really cool rock/island formation (it was rainy here), and then Lake Crescent where we did a hike to a waterfall and then went to take a look at the lake before heading back to the ferry and back to Seattle.
We ended the day going to this cool Italian restaurant that had live jazz music called The Pink Door, which was a little hard to find though it was in a really cute alleyway of restaurants. There’s no sign, just legit a pink door! But the food was delicious. We had arancini, ahi tuna crudo, and I had the pappardelle bolognese for my main.
P.S. The first three photos on the ferry were from the outgoing trip and the next three are from the return trip. That’s how the photos loaded on here due to the file name and I was too lazy to rearrange the photos to make the return trip ferry photos move down to the bottom of the post.
We’re halfway through recapping my trip!
