Hurricane Hill Trail

Jim and I have gone to Hurricane Ridge several times but we never took this trail. You need to drive a bit down from the parking lot and there it is. It's a great walk and we really enjoyed ourselves. The day was just beautiful with both sun and clouds. Well, I think I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

This sign was at the beginning of the trail. In addition to describing the trail, it warned you about bear and mountain goats. ( A Seattle man was killed by a goat last summer).

A typical view from the trail.

We heard the loud sounds of a bird and looked up and saw this huge raven!

He'd make a great Halloween addition!

The clouds came in. I think the combination made it even prettier than just sun.

We often saw just one peak showing through the clouds.
The meadows were full of flowers.

The dead trees were stark against the mountain.

The SBA enters a cloud!

It was close to dinner time when we got back to Port Angeles. We have a restaurant the we like right on the water. The ferry that you see is heading to Victoria,BC. We have taken this ferry several times.

The SBA is again having a delightful adult beverage!

I hope you join me again tomorrow to see the incredible wild flowers of Hurricane Ridge.
