new years trip: the olympic peninsula

Hurricane ridge 2 Hurricane ridge 1

I spent New Years up in The Olympic Peninsula with two lovely girlfriends and some strangers. I often dream about jetting off to foreign lands but I forget that there's some pretty cool stuff right under my nose (or a few hours away at any rate). I was floored by the scenery at Lake Crescent, Lake Sutherland and at Hurricane Ridge (pictured). These snapshots don't do it justice at all! Snowshoeing is my snow sport of choice as it requires the least amount of coordination. Ha! 


If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend a visit to The Olympic Peninsula and then you can hop over to Canada via the Port Angeles ferries. I didn't have time for Canada this trip.We used to catch the ferry to Victoria every summer to visit my grandfather and I want to go soon. Hoping to make time this year to get out of town at least once a month! What did you all do for New Years?
