Olympic it is

The Olympic Peninsula, from what people tell me, is an often forgotten sidenote to Washington’s fortunes — and misfortunes. That’s hard to imagine, given the area’s tremendous beauty, natural resources and wonderful people. You can sample much of that heading west on Route 101 and veering off onto spur roads that take you to temperate rainforests, misty beaches, crystal blue lakes and, occasionally, the town you should probably avoid. I’ll be entering Oregon tomorrow, but leaving the great state of Washington with wonderful memories!

    1. Annie: Meth and heroin are big problems in some of the towns. When I mentioned to a couple I met in a store a town I was thinking about staying in, they shook their heads and recommended I drive a little further south, which I did.

  1. On Thursday two of James’s best friends stopped to see him; he had not seen them since 1995. They are from Washington State and they were sharing how beautiful it is. Thanks for sharing the pictures; they are beautiful. Take care.
