With our big move out to Seattle coming at the end of the year I've been flying back and forth to the PNW nonstop. Last month I had 48 hours of free time. 48 hours where I didn't have anymore meetings and I could go anywhere and do anything! I knew I wanted to do some serious exploring.
It was my first backpacking trip to Olympic National Park about 7 years ago that made me want to move to Seattle to begin with. So I figured I'd head west to Cape Flattery for sunset, South to Shi Shi Beach and Point of Arches for a good Sunrise adventure. Then drive out to La Push, WA to run around Rialto Beach. I could wait there for sunset and the stars. (I ended up grabbing my favorite star photo to date!) That wasn't the end of the journey, I had another sunrise to see and I figured The Hoh Rainforest was the place. After that, there's the 4 hour trip back to Seattle to catch my flight to Chicago.
I can't wait for the move in December!
