Day 51: Olympic NP, Deer Ridge

Tuesday, July 16, 2013. Port Angeles/Sequim KOA, Sequim, WA. Elevation: 36 feet. Low: 56 High: 67.

After doing chores in the morning, we headed out to Deer Ridge with a picnic lunch. We took Forest Service road 5865 to Rain Shadow Trail. We had our picnic at the campground there and had a brief glimpse of two Rufous Hummingbirds, flitting from branch to branch. We continued on a steep, curvy gravel road with steep drop offs along the edge of the road. We had a wonderful walk on the trail and saw great scenery and lots of wildflowers on Deer Ridge.
