My first visit up to Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park, Washington was absolutely amazing. The vast number of snow dusted peaks and the deep valleys in between was awesome. I am so used to the Cascade mountains where there is a lot of space in between each peak, it was cool seeing so many mountains so close together! We explored the beautiful ridge and walked through the winter wonderland of a forest. The trees and snow drifts made such unique shapes that it felt like we were in a Dr Seuss world. As we explored the area a storm was building in the valley below as well as above us. It was really cool seeing the storm keep building and growing below us before finally overtaking us.
I can’t wait to go back to Olympic National Park in the summer and explore the beautiful area further. There is a lot to see in the area and I only just scratched the surface!
