Drove down the rode to Olympic National Park in the morning. Started off on Hurricane Ridge. Very nice views of the mountain range and wild mountain flowers all over the place. Walked a trail there and headed down the road to Sol duc Springs. Walked a trail there to a really cool waterfall. Headed back towards Port Townsend after that, but stopped to walk a trail to the Marymere Falls. After that I head back to Port Townsend. I got back around 7:30 and grabbed a book and headed down to the beach to wait for the fireworks to start. Nice place to see the 4th of July fireworks. They set them off from a barge in the harbor, and the fireworks went off right over the water.
I will be starting a Master's Program at the University of Iowa in the Fall of 2009. I am planning a six week trip this summer during June and July. I will be traveling through Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, California, Oregon, Washington, Montana, and Wyoming.... full info
