First Snow In the Mountains

Winter is a magical time on the Olympic Peninsula. We just had the first snow up on Hurricane Ridge and will soon have much more. Ski and snowboard season will soon be here.

Funny thing is most people think hiking season is over. That’s just wrong. It just means lowland coastal hiking has just begun, as long as you don’t mind the wet.

There are many great winter hikes in the area and one of our favorites is The Cape Flattery Trail. This trail goes to the most northwesterly point in the contiguous U.S.

Details of the hike at the link. Bonus points for this hike is unlike most of Olympic National Park, dogs are allowed!
