Exploring the Olympic Peninsula
Exploring the Olympic Peninsula has become a regular occurrence these past few years.
I usually make it out to La Push which is on the Quileutae Indian Reservation. This tiny hamlet is located just south of the Quillayute River. Spending time in this area reminds you why they based the Twilight series in this part of the world.
Full of mystic and lore.
Maybe because the coast of Washington is rugged and a very active place. In geological terms that is. Apart of the infamous ring of fire the coastal area of Washington is made up of volcanic rock. Very young volcanic rock. It is why the area is very green and boasts some of the most diverse plant species in the world.
Often times when you get a chance to head out towards the coast the weather can be unpredictable. But hey if your from the Northwest then that shouldn’t be any thing new to you.
We happened to be fortunate this time when we went out to La Push. In my opinion I’d have to say that this part of the Pacific North West has some of the most dramatic scenery found anywhere along the west coast of North America.
But hey that’s just me giving my two sense on the matter and thought that I’d just throw that out there for you all.
