It has been a while since we visited the Olympic National Forest and the small break in our rain today urged us out. Instead of traveling the entire Olympic Peninsula, we took the Hood Canal Bridge and headed west toward Lake Crescent. On the way, we stopped at the Elwha River Valley. The Elwha River was rushing wildly, and the meadows were abloom with Snowdrops. It was a sweet visit that stopped soon with the closure of the ongoing road.
Heading to Lake Crescent, we had a soft rain with intermittent sun breaks. The lake was a canvas painted with shades of blue and aqua. In the distance, The Storm King mountain was crisp in the sky. Waterfalls along the lake road were so melodious that we had to leave our window down, though it was softly raining.
Thank you all for coming along to the Olympic National Forest. Some day, take this drive. You will not regret it. Once seen, you will long to return.
