I have been visiting National Parks in Washington back to back since mom got here. I have always loved visiting Olympic National Park especially because of the ferry ride to get to the peninsula. I usually take Edmonds-Kingston ferry in the morning (for the view of Olympic mountains) and Bainbridge-Seattle on the return(for Seattle skyline view). We did the same in the weekend and drove up-to Hurricane Ridge. With the green meadows, snow capped mountains in the vista and clear views I found the surroundings much more crisp and beautiful compared to my last visit 6 months back. I had looked for a hike nearby and we drove to the trailhead. The views start right from the parking lot and stays on almost till the top of Hurricane hill. I could see many colorful wildflowers, vast patches of grass, valleys and mountains in the far. It was an easy hike and mom was able to manage quite well. It was cloudy at places but added a nice touch to the surroundings. Once on the hill, we could see the waters, San Juan islands and maybe a bit of Canada too. There was a couple with a baby who was so cheerful which was nice to see. I totally loved this hike and I would liken this to Rattlesnake since it’s easy with beautiful views. We had lunch on the nearby picnic tables and returned to Seattle.
