This is the first day of our five day vacation on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State! We stayed in the town of Sequim, and really like the Quality Inn for its very reasonable prices and included breakfast. Sequim is also located close to plenty of hiking. The forecast said rain for most of the week but we’ll see (spoiler – nice everyday but last!). We cancelled our last three vacations so it’s nice to finally get out and enjoy some time away from home. 🙂
There’s plenty of snow in Olympic National Park so it looks like hiking there will be difficult, if impossible. In addition, there is extensive road work going on near Lake Crescent, so this area looks to be a less than desirable option, since we hate waiting for pilot cars to get us beyond the construction. Oh, always issues where ever you go.
We hiked on the ODT (Olympic Discovery Trail) and Robin Hill Demonstration Farm after driving here. Robin Hill Farm is a gem. Huge trail system and nobody there. Beautiful forest and large meadow. Plenty of rolling hills was good on the back. Connected to previous hike on the ODT. We didn’t hike very much on ODT due to finding Robin Hill Farm just off the ODT. Went west just past Mcdonald Creek while on the ODT. Homes everywhere on this section of ODT. Not many views where we were on this hike, but plenty of flowers. Only farms, and forested Robin Hill, were seen but only saw two people the entire hike! The weather was awesome and it was a great first day on vacation.
