Hurricane Ridge is a short drive from Sequim to Port Angeles and then 17 miles up into the Olympic National Park.  This is part of almost a million acres of National Park lands in the Olympics west of Seattle.  You could say this is a national treasure.  I enjoyed a hike on the trails of Hurricane Ridge this beautiful sunny Labor Day weekend, and I thought you might enjoy the photos.

The drive up to Hurricane Ridge is a very pleasant drive, and if you’ve ever driven up to a ski hill, then you can imagine what this drive is like, only without the snow this time of year.  There’s a lot to see, and when I first arrived at the top, I found myself just starring at the mountains and breathing in the fresh mountain air.  A lot of other people were caught in the same trance, and I saw tourists from all over the world, and almost everyone had a camera in their hands.

I strongly recommend Hurricane Ridge as one of your little tours while your here.
