Today was a beautiful day for a top-down drive to the Olympic Peninsula and up to Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park. It was so clear we could see Victoria B.C. across the Strait.  The elevation at the Visitor Center is about 5200 ft, but feels much higher as you look out along mountain ridge tops.
