Hurricane Ridge

Our base camp for the next two weeks is the Escapees Evergreen Coho Park in Chimacum, WA.  It is one of our yearly, seasonal stops and offers nice accommodations at an affordable price.
When we first pulled in we were parked next to another Country Coach MH and soon realized they were folks we had met at Oregon Motorcoach Center.  Bonnie and John have become great friends in a short amount of time.  It's always amazing how full-time RVers know each other's life story after a couple of get-togethers.

 After several days of "spring cleaning" projects and cloudy, overcast weather the sun came out and we decided to take off for a day of adventure which also provided the most spectacular scenery; a visit to Hurricane Ridge in the Olympic National Park was in order.

We traveled from 0 to 5242' on 17 miles of paved road from Port Angeles to the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center. Views of glacier-clad mountains crowning sub-alpine meadows of wildflowers awaited us at the summit.

Black-tailed deer grazed on lupine and a buck meandered by in the snow.  

We pulled off at all the viewpoints to capture the moment.

Our kind of road!
