Remember how excited I was to go backpacking in Olympic National Park?
Let’s start by getting all your jokes about the name out right now. I’ll go: If a tree falls in the rain forest, does a ho hear it? Ha ha! Hilarious!
Sam and I had been on the road a few weeks by the time we found the campground at Kalaloch Beach (“clay-lock”) in Olympic National Park, Washington.
My favorite color combination – what, you don’t have one? – is green and blue. I realized this when I looked around my house the other day and saw those colors featured in almost every room.
Cape Flattery in Washington state is not, in fact, a place to go when you’re feeling insecure and need some praise.
It was a first: I visited a National Park and didn’t get one photograph of what I was there to see.
