FALL 2015 — WINTER 2016


Second Beach in LaPush

Weather: What to expect here Did you know Port Angeles was the coolest town on the West Coast? It’s not just figurative; it’s literal. At 56.6 degrees, Port Angeles has the lowest annual average high temperature among non-mountainous locations west of the Rocky Mountains — even cooler than the coast. But it’s not like it’s in the midst of the frozen tundra. The North Olympic Peninsula is one of the most temperate spots you’ll find in the United States as the cool waters of the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Strait of Juan de Fuca to the north keep away the heat waves in the summer and the extended freezing periods in winter. In the winter, high temperatures typically reach the mid-40s with overnight lows only dropping into the mid-30s as the water acts a bit like a warming blanket. Snow events are just a handful of times a year, and hard freezes are rare and typically short-lived. But before you think, “Well, it rains a lot there, doesn’t it?” — not so fast! The northeastern side of the Olympic Peninsula is the driest part of Western Washington, thanks to the Olympic rain shadow. Typical storms that blow in from the southwest will slam into the Olympic Mountains, and as the air currents rise, the storm’s moisture is wrung out on the mountains’ windward side.

The process generates more than 200 inches of rain per year, creating some of the lushest rain forests on the continent. But on the other side, as that stormy air flow scales the peaks and sinks down the northeastern, leeward side of the mountains, the air dries out. This process leaves a big gap — usually stretching between Port Angeles through Sequim and into Port Townsend — where drenching rains are reduced to a fine drizzle, or even completely dry. Overall, Sequim averages only about 18 inches of rain per year — about on par with Flagstaff, Ariz. Port Angeles, on the western edge of the shadow, gets about 27 inches of rain per year, but for every mile you drive west from there and away from the rain shadow, you add about 1 inch of additional rain per year. Once you reach Forks about 75 miles to the west, you’re in a town that averages about 100 inches of rain per year.  You can find more about the rain shadow by visiting www.komonews. com/rainshadow. Story by Scott Sistek, a Port Angeles native and University of Washington graduate who is a meteorologist at KOMO-TV in Seattle. You can read his weather blog at www.komonews.com/weather/blogs/ scott.

FALL 2015 — WINTER 2016

F

Plan your trip The best way to explore the North Olympic Peninsula is by getting out and into the local parks and forests. The key to being comfortable on the Peninsula this winter is preparing for cloudier days, colder weather, wind and rain and that famous Northwest mist that isn’t really rain but slowly dampens everything around you. Jeans, thermals, hiking boots, rain jackets, sweatshirts and hoodies, Tshirts and extra socks are a must. Pack a heavier winter coat, just in case the snow falls during your visit. Bring some snow-ready boots. If you’re planning on walking a lot, a pair of solid sneakers is a must in case the weather lightens up. If you have plans to hike around Hurricane Ridge, Lake Crescent or similar areas, long underwear, a warm cap and a scarf will help you enjoy the experience. If you have plans to camp, fish or hunt, be sure to acquire the necessary licenses and passes from wherever you plan to stay. Make sure to check camping area websites to ensure the area is open for the season. Some campgrounds are walk-in only during the winter months. Be prepared to burn a lot of wood!

EAST JEFFERSON COUNTY The Emerald Towns Discovering the “emerald towns” of Quilcene and Brinnon is like finding a rare gem. These quiet towns offer visitors a place to relax and experience life the way it should be lived. Well-known for its clams and oysters, this Hood Canal region also offers seasonal crabbing, shrimping and fishing opportunities. For those who would rather let

others do the hunting and gathering, there are many seafood retailers and restaurants. There are five public or private boat launch ramps from Quilcene to Triton Cove, south of Brinnon, and three marinas. Consider Homeport Marina and Pleasant Harbor Marina, both located in Brinnon. Quilcene and Brinnon are nestled among the trees near the Olympic National Forest. Some campsites are

Explore the east side of the Peninsula, home to several intriguing towns

in the seclusion of quiet forests, while others are adjacent to or within easy walking distance of Hood Canal and the three main rivers that flow out of the Olympic Mountains to Hood Canal — the Dosewallips, Duckabush and Hamma Hamma. There also are a few fishing lakes near Quilcene. Accommodations, from well-appointed cabins to lodges to B&Bs, also are available. While exploring the beaches, riverbanks and forest roads or trails, visitors can observe an abundance of wildlife including a variety of bird species, seals and perhaps a glimpse of one of the several bands of majestic elk that roam throughout Brinnon’s Dosewallips and Duckabush valleys. Three waterfalls, all within surprisingly easy hiking distance, can be seen and enjoyed in the span of a single day. These are Falls View, Rocky Brook and Murhut. A fourth cascade, Dosewallips Falls, is accessible only by foot. On a day of enjoying the waterfalls, don’t forget to take a drive to the top of Mount Walker for incredible views of Seattle and the Puget Sound to the east or magnificent views of the mountains within Olympic National Park to the west. Learn about salmon at the Quilcene National Fish Hatchery, which is two miles south of Quilcene, where the Big Quilcene River crosses under U.S. Highway 101. Take a side trip over to Coyle, where you can experience an all-ages Concert in the Woods at the Laurel B. Johnson Community Center, 923 Hazel Point Road (www.coyleconcerts.com). The visitor information center at the Forest Service Ranger Station, 295142 Highway 101, is open daily. Additional details and information are available from the North Hood Canal Chamber of Commerce at www. emeraldtowns.com.

LODGING

JEFFERSON COUNTY

Port Ludlow Marina

Port Ludlow

Chimacum is known for its dairy farms spreading across Chimacum Valley. H.J. Carroll Park, off state Highway 19, is a county park that offers a playground, BMX track, disc golf course and other amenities. Some bookworm trivia: A road off state Highway 19 is named “Egg and I Road” after Betty MacDonald’s 1945 memoir, The Egg and I. The book told about her experiences living on a chicken farm in Chimacum and spawned a film of the same title and the Ma and Pa Kettle films. The farm that was the subject of her tales was located on that road. Stop by the Chimacum Corner Farmstand (9122 Rhody Drive, 360732-0107, www.chimacumcorner.com), a small rural grocery store that features locally grown or produced food.

Port Ludlow is a residential and recreational community built up around the shores of Ludlow Bay. The natural environment and developed facilities offer hikes on wooded trails and paths, spots for clams and oysters along the beach, drives through scenic countryside, bicycling and jogging. The Port Ludlow Golf Course, 751 Highland Drive, features two 9-hole courses for two different games. For water lovers, there is a marina as well as boat launches for sailing, power boating, fishing, windsurfing and kayaking. Don’t forget to stop and eat at one of the quaint restaurants available.

At the eastern end of the Peninsula, Port Townsend takes pride in being a cultural hub on the North Olympic Peninsula. It is the seat of Jefferson County. Artists of all disciplines gravitate to the town of 9,100 that relishes its eclectic personality. Established in 1851, Port Townsend’s character comes from its boom in the 1880s and 1890s as a major seaport, fishing and lumber area. The architecture of the Victorian era peppers the city and can be seen in many businesses and homes.

Whale watching The North Olympic Peninsula has a multitude of places to potentially see gray, humpback and minke whales, especially near the Pacific coast. In Port Townsend and up near the San Juan Islands, visitors have the same chances of also seeing an orca or two. Those chances can be increased by booking whale watching with any one of the local guided boat tour businesses. Bring your camera, family and friends and prepare to view the Southern Resident orcas, a large extended family made up of the three groups: J, K and L pods. During the autumn and winter months, your chances of seeing gray whales increase. Chances are you will see myriad other wildlife on your adventure, including otters, various sea birds and sea lions. Puget Sound Express provides several different sightseeing and whale-watching excursions. Phone 360-385-5288, email info@pugetsoundexpress. com or visit www.pugetsoundexpress.com for more information.

In Port Angeles, you can book a tour through Port Angeles Whale Watch. Phone 800-465-4604 or visit www.pawhalewatch.com for more information. Visit the Port Townsend Marine Science Center, located at 532 Battery Way in Fort Worden State Park, and get a chance to see a spout or two while you learn about the migratory and family habits of whales that frequent the area. Along Hood Canal, Dosewallips State Park, 306996 U.S. Highway 101, offers a site viewing platform overlooking the canal. If you’re lucky, you just might spot a fin or four cutting through the calm waters.

Discover a trio of forts in Jefferson County To uncover the best places to romp with your dog on the beach, hike to your heart’s content, be lullabied by waves slapping on the shore and fling open your tent flap to the sun sparkling over the mountains, just ask some Olympic Peninsula residents for their favorite parks. More than likely, they’ll direct you to a trio of former forts, now state parks, that are destinations unto themselves. Fort Flagler State Park, Fort Townsend State Park and Fort Worden State Park and Conference Center all are within a short drive from the Hood Canal Bridge and Port Townsend on the eastern side of the North Olympic Peninsula. A Discover Pass is required to visit these sights.

Fort Flagler State Park

Fort Flagler State Park on the tip of Marrowstone Island is a bit out of the way, but definitely worth the scenic drive, as it is surrounded by Puget Sound. The state park has 12.5 miles of roads, five miles of hiking/biking trails and more than 3.5 miles of generous sandy shoreline. Fort Flagler was a working Army fort from 1897-1953 and became a state park in 1955. A number of its Victorian buildings remain and can be toured by phoning the park office at 360-385-3701. The park has 101 standard tent sites, 14 utility spaces, one dump station, four restrooms (one ADA) and eight showers (two ADA). Forty-seven standard tent sites are in the upper camping area. There are two boat ramps and 256 feet of moorage. To reserve a campsite, phone 888-CAMPOUT or 888-226-7688. Visitors also can explore the military museum with its interactive, interpretative display. It maintains weekend hours from October through May.

Fort Townsend State Park

Point Wilson Lighthouse at Fort Worden State Park

George Vancouver in the late 1790s, the settlement of Port Townsend (originally Port Townshend) didn’t begin until about 1850. Old Fort Townsend was established in 1856 on Port Townsend Bay to protect these early settlers from surrounding Native American tribes. Over the next century, the fort was on furlough more than it was in service. In 1895, after Port Townsend’s heyday, the barracks burned and the fort faded into Jefferson County history for decades. Owned by the state since 1953, the site has about 370 heavily wooded acres and 3,960 feet of saltwater shoreline offering views of Admiralty Inlet, Port Townsend Bay and the Cascade Mountains. There are 6.5 miles of forested hiking trails, including a self-guided nature trail and one highlighting the park’s fort history. The park is open year-round for day use; camping is permitted from March 28 through Oct. 15 and is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Fort Worden State Park and Conference Center

across the nation in large part due to Centrum, the Washington state arts organization, which presents workshops in the arts and seminars in the sciences on site. But it’s also a day trip and camping destination with its two miles of sandy beaches. Upon entering the park, visitors will be swept back a century by three dozen Victorian houses that were used as barracks in the fort’s early years. The houses may be reserved by calling 360-344-4434 or visiting www.parks.wa.gov/fortworden/ accommodations. The park has 12 miles of hiking/ biking trails and five miles of trails that are handicapped-compliant. The park also features a baseball/ softball field, kayak, rowboat and bike rentals, tennis courts, two boat ramps and 235 feet of dock/moorage. Camp near the beach at one of 50 full-service sites with views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Admiralty Inlet and Mount Baker, or go up the hill to 30 more private and primitive camping sites. Reservations are highly recommended; phone 360-344-4431. Along the beach-side road are the Port Townsend Marine Science Center, the Natural History Museum, the Point Wilson Lighthouse and the Puget Sound Coast Artillery Museum.

EXPLORE PORT TOWNSEND Marine Science Center Many residents and visitors, on their way to the Point Wilson Lighthouse or campgrounds in Fort Worden State Park, might overlook two buildings that make up the Port Townsend Marine Science Center. Those whose curiosity gets the better of them are rewarded with dynamic displays of intertidal plants and animals indigenous to Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca and an exhibit called “The Land Meets the Sea.” Built on a pier in the 1940s as an Army supply warehouse, the 50-foot marine science building now gives

the illusion of being in an underwater world, thanks to a $1.1 million renovation. The center was founded in 1982 as an educational and scientific organization devoted to understanding and conserving the area’s marine and shoreline environment.

Several closed tanks, touch pools and hands-on exhibits allow visitors to observe, up close and personal, marine life in its live-seaweed habitat, which must be replaced every few weeks. For dates and prices, visit www. ptmsc.org or phone the center at 360-385-5582.

County Courthouse

Aero Museum

Historical Society

Built in 1890-1892, this courthouse is still used by the elected officials and employees of Jefferson County and has a spectacular view of Port Townsend Bay and the entrance to Admiralty Inlet. Made with bricks shipped from St. Louis and some 786 tons of sandstone from Alaska, the courthouse, located at 1820 Jefferson St., was built at an estimated cost of $150,000. The interior design of wainscoting on the walls, carved oak wall panels and patterned quarry tile floors make this a favorite site for architectural history buffs.

One antique airplane aficionado must-see on the North Olympic Peninsula is the Port Townsend Aero Museum at Jefferson County International Airport, four miles south of the junction of state Highways 19 and 20. About 30 antique airplanes have been donated to the nonprofit and, after meticulous restoration, are displayed on three levels. The museum is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays. Admission is $10 for adults, $6 for youth 7-12. For more information, phone 360-437-0863 or visit www. ptaeromuseum.com.

The Jefferson County Historical Society Museum, located at 540 Water St., is in the magnificently restored 1892 Port Townsend City Hall building. Housed in the former municipal courtroom, fire hall and jail spaces, the museum’s exhibits illustrate the lively history of communities born in waterfront forests more than 150 years ago. Museum hours are daily from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission for adults is $4, children 3-12 are $1. A passport to the museum and the Rothschild House is $6.

Marrowstone Island Located southeast of Port Townsend, Marrowstone Island is a narrow piece of land that houses the small community of Nordland along with Fort Flagler State Park. Despite its small stature, the island’s community has plenty to offer visitors. Marrowstone takes its name from Marrowstone Point, the northernmost point on the island. It was given this name in 1792 by British explorer George Vancouver. Fort Flagler, located on the north end, was completed in 1907 as an

Army coast artillery fort. It became a state park in 1955 and features a museum on the history of the fort. Guided tours can be arranged in advance. Those looking to camp or fly some kites can find the perfect spot at Fort Flagler as well as Mystery Bay State Park, a 10-acre marine state park located at 10541 Fort Flagler Road. Here and at the fort, campers can partake in clamming, crabbing, freshwater fishing, diving and more. A Discover Pass is required for both parks as well as corresponding licenses for recreational activities.

Visitors looking for a place to eat, some live music or a few art galleries to visit will find enough to fill a day or two out on the island. Also stop in at the Nordland General Store (7180 Flagler Road), which has been part of the community since the early 1920s. Grab some supplies for a picnic. Take the turnoff for Port Townsend off U.S. Highway 101. Turn right onto Anderson Lake Road, left on Rhody Drive and right onto Highway 116. Once there, take in the coastal surroundings and sites before setting up camp or unpacking at a cabin.

Discovery Bay Discovery Bay is an ideal place to take a rest from the road, stay overnight at a motel or just get away from the faster pace of living. It is located at U.S. Highway 101 and state Highway 20. The Port of Port Townsend owns a public recreational boat launch off Gardiner Beach Road that provides access to the bay. While kayakers sometimes paddle along the shoreline, the bay is typically quiet. British explorer Capt. George Vancouver found Discovery Bay in 1792 and named the body of water after his flagship, HMS Discovery. After a sawmill was built in 1853, boats carried wood in and out of the bay. The old mill is no longer standing. In 2008, the North Olympic Salmon Coalition created and restored salt marsh habitat, known as the Salmon Creek Estuary.

In the rain shadow of the 8,000-foot Olympic Mountains, Sequim is one of the driest locales in Western Washington, receiving an average of 16 inches annually. The first European settlers arrived in the Dungeness Valley in the 1850s, settling near New Dungeness; however, the Klallam tribe had inhabited the region long before their arrival. In 1874, when Native American tribes were being pressured to move to reservations, several groups of Klallams raised enough money to purchase land north of Sequim, which was the beginning of what would become the Jamestown S’Klallam community. Approximately two hours from Seattle, Tacoma and Olympia, the Sequim-Dungeness Valley is home to some 27,000 residents, many of who retired to the area from across the country.

Downtown Sequim is a destination for tourists and locals to eat, shop, catch a little culture and enjoy conversation over cups of coffee or glasses of wine. The downtown is a walkable community of locally owned and operated specialty shops anchored by Sequim Avenue and Washington Street. Within its six-square-block area, there are nearly 60 small businesses that are conveniently located, offer plenty of variety and take pride in personalized customer service. The atmosphere is friendly, inviting and relaxing. Just park your car on any of the nonmetered streets and stroll to one of downtown’s dozen or so restaurants for home-style cooking to gourmet fare. Once fortified, meander through downtown’s distinctive shops featuring surprising goods such as lavender products, scrapbooking supplies, scented candles, handcrafted chocolates, fine wines and cheeses, new and used books and classic, vintage and exotic clothing and linens. Take a break at one of half-dozen coffee houses/bistros downtown or sample local wines. Several stores carry Northwest arts and crafts, and there’s an art gallery featuring local artists. Downtown businesses and artists joined forces several years ago to make art available to all with the First Friday Art Walk from 5 p.m.

We are a local fellowship of Christ’s body (a local church of Christ), serving in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley area. We are disciples of Jesus, the Son of God, proclaiming the gospel of Christ and His kingdom, in both word and deed. As such, we purposefully submit to Jesus Christ as Lord, obey His teachings, and strive to follow His example in everything. Our simple purpose, as given by God in His word, is to obey His Son Jesus and teach others to do the same. Mt. 28.19-20; Mk. 16.15-16. Our desire is to introduce you to Jesus and to your gospel calling to pick up your cross and follow Him. The teachings of Christ bring life to all who believe and obey them. Jn. 6.63, 68. They are for every day life. We give much time and attention to the living out of His words. Using His word, and Jesus Himself as our example, we regularly teach lifestyle application for areas of life that are often overlooked. We heartily invite you to join us and learn of Christ and His kingdom.

Audubon Center At Dungeness River Audubon Center, with its example displays, hands-on exhibits and knowledgeable staff, is a focal point for study and education concerning the Dungeness River watershed and its environs. Hands-on exhibits include drawers full of the fascinating and the curious: bones, feathers, eggs and teeth of species from songbird to mammoth. Children will enjoy going on a scavenger hunt through Railroad Bridge Park, and the Audubon Center is a great place to begin a ramble along the riverside trails through the forest or over the stony shore of the Dungeness River.

Dungeness Recreation Area Dungeness Recreation Area is another of Clallam County’s favorite recreational destinations and the gateway to Dungeness Spit, located at 554 Voice of America Road.

Dungeness Refuge Every hike on the Dungeness Spit is different. Every hike is the same. Weather, tide and time of year make each visit unique, but there’s something familiar on every trip. The spit is part of the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge, which is managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and covers 631 acres. It is located just past the Dungeness Recreation Area. Hikers are restricted to the north shore of Dungeness Spit to reach the New Dungeness Light Station and must arrive and depart between sunrise and sunset, avoiding high tides. For a tide schedule, visit www.new dungenesslighthouse.com. Camping and beachcombing are not permitted in the refuge. Stretching 5.5 miles to the New Dungeness Light Station and several hundred yards beyond, Dungeness Spit is the nation’s longest natural sand spit, growing at a rate of about 20 feet per year. At the head of the trail in the Dungeness Recreation Area, pay the $3 per group fee and leave your pet in your car — pets are not allowed on the trail or the spit. Some 6,000 visitors annually make the trek. The first half-mile of the refuge is a

picturesque trail through the upland conifer forest before reaching a pair of overlooks that give a spectacular view of the narrow ribbon of the sand spit. The 1857 lighthouse is a tiny beacon that appears to be far, far away. The inner shore of the spit is a wildlife refuge for nesting birds and lucky hikers will be favored with seeing a variety of feathered critters. The New Dungeness Light Station is open to the public, and tours of the lighthouse are available daily from 9 a.m. to two hours before sunset. Boat access is permitted by reservation only through the refuge office, 715 Holgerson Road, Sequim, 360457-8451. If you’re not up for a strenuous hike, take your pet and stroll along the straitside bluffs, a four-mile loop in the recreation area for a bird’s-eye view of the spit. Picnic tables and 66 camping sites are available. For more information, phone 360457-8451 or visit www.dungeness100. com.

TRAVELING TO SEQUIM

ng Ba en y ess

Coming in from the Hood Canal, visitors have plenty of opportunities to jump off U.S. Highway 101 and head into Sequim and the Dungeness Valley. Several exits lead to different entry points of the city, and those traveling by car or bus may get a glimpse of the Sequim elk herd during the ride. Once within the city, grab your bicycle and take a ride on the Olympic Discovery Trail, or cruise around downtown to enjoy the sights.

Olympic Game Farm A family-run business, Olympic Game Farm, located at 1423 Ward Road, is home to many animal species, both endangered and nonendangered. Many of its animals are veterans of television and movies. For more than 28 years, the Olympic Game Farm worked exclusively with Walt Disney Studios and many others on features for movies and television. Today, the farm is home to more than 20 different exotic and nonexotic species, with hundreds of animals

on site for families to “get face to face with wildlife” from the comfort of their vehicles on the farm’s driving tour. The farm also has walking tours for groups of 10 or more. Reservations are required between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Visitors can also check out the farm’s studio barn and freshwater aquarium. On the driving tour, there are friendly llamas that eat bread from your hand, performing bears, grazing elk and buffalo. You also will see many animals which are on the endangered spe-

cies list, such as timber wolves, Bengal tigers and African lions. The farm also is home to coyotes, bobcats, cougars and many more species. Driving tours are open yearround from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day. There is an admission fee for the tours. Visit www.olygamefarm.com or phone 360-683-4295 or 800-7784295 for rates. Local chambers of commerce have brochures on the farm and directions to it.

Parks

Kayaking

Carrie Blake Park, at 202 N. Blake Ave., is a Sequim gem for all ages that’s used year-round, no matter what the weather. You’ll find walkers and joggers on the blacktopped trail looping through the north side of the park, many with their canine pals who are welcome to romp in the fenced off-leash dog park — it’s set up with small and large dog areas. There are two playground areas with swings and climbing structures. Older youths will enjoy the adjacent BMX track and skateboard park. The softball fields are first-come, first-served. For parking, enter from Rhodefer Road off East Washington Street, a few blocks east of Blake Avenue. The park is open from dawn to dusk. Railroad Bridge Park, on the opposite end of town, is a bit of forest in the city. At 2151 W. Hendrickson Road, north and west of Walmart off Priest Road, the park has toe-dipping access to the Dungeness River, which can be calm or churning, but is relentlessly cold. The 1900s railroad bridge is part of the Olympic Discovery Trail that runs through the park. The bridge is closed to through traffic because the western trestle was damaged by a flood during a February storm. A $1.53 million project funded through the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe to construct a new 750-foottrestle over the river began in September and is expected to be completed in December. The park has several picnic tables, an outdoor stage and numerous side trails through the foliage. The park is open from dawn to dusk, and no pass is required.

The Sequim area offers a variety of prime kayaking locations in the Strait of Juan de Fuca with the bonus of seeing birds and wildlife closer to their habitat. Kayak launch sites are as follows: •  Cline Spit on Marine Drive •  Diamond Point on the northeast Miller Peninsula •  Dungeness Landing on Marine Drive near Oyster House Road •  Gardiner off U.S. Highway 101 to Gardiner Beach Road •  John Wayne Marina on West Sequim Bay Road •  Marlyn Nelson County Park on Port Williams Road •  Sequim Bay State Park between Gardiner and Sequim

Biking For scenic mountain biking beauty, it’s hard to beat the Dungeness Valley, especially as the foliage begins to turn in the autumn months. For those with youngsters who want to get them interested in biking, try Robin Hill Farm County Park, which offers a nice little trail for beginners and families. The park is located off Dryke Road between Sequim and Port Angeles. Another more challenging spot to consider is Burnt Hill Road, accessible from Happy Valley Road. The 4-mile climb is a fantastic trail for the bike enthusiast. For a fun ride, sign up for the Olympic Bike Adventure, held in September (360-417-4557, www.olympicbike adventure.com). The 25-mile trek covers the Olympic Discovery Trail from Port Angeles to the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribal Center on Sequim Bay in Blyn.

The Elwha River Restoration is a National Park Service project that began in mid-September 2011. The project, the largest damremoval project in history, entailed tearing down the 108-foot Elwha Dam and the 210-foot Glines Canyon Dam and restoration of the Elwha River watershed. The removal of both dams was completed in August 2014. The ongoing restoration work has allowed the Elwha River to flow through its native channel for the first time in more than 100 years, and will allow salmon to migrate upstream to spawn in the nutrient-rich habitat. In September 2014, the first reported sighting of chinook in the Upper Elwha River above the Glines Canyon Dam site in 102 years was confirmed. Much of the fine sediment that built up in the dams’ reservoirs, the former Lake Aldwell and Lake Mills, was released by the removal process and has changed the shape of the river and caused changes in the habitat at the mouth of the river and in Freshwater Bay. For more information, visit www. nps.gov and search for “Elwha River Restoration.”

NORTH OLYMPIC PENINSULA GUIDE

F

During the early 1900s, Port Angeles entrepreneur Thomas Aldwell sought to harness the energy of the Elwha River and spearheaded construction of the hydroelectric Elwha Dam, which was completed in 1913. The growing economy soon led to the decision to build a second dam — Glines Canyon Dam, completed in 1927. The two dams blocked much of the 70-mile Elwha River, which had one of the most productive salmon runs in the Pacific Northwest. Spawning runs were reduced from 400,000 fish before the dams were completed to only 3,000. In 1992, Congress passed the Elwha River Ecosystem and Fisheries Restoration Act, which called for full restoration of the ecosystem and fisheries. An environmental impact statement concluded that removal of both dams was the only way to achieve restoration. There are multiple viewing areas: Lower Elwha Klallam Tribal Center, the Elwha Dam Viewpoint, the Elwha River Viewpoint, the Elwha Valley and the Glines Canyon overlook. Visit www.nps.gov for directions and updates on road closures.

FALL 2015 — WINTER 2016


Port Angeles is the seat of Clallam County, and with more than 19,000 residents is the largest city on the North Olympic Peninsula. Visitors use the city as a base to explore Olympic National Park and Victoria, B.C. Views of the Olympic Mountains and Strait of Juan de Fuca are abundant in this authentic Northwest town. A variety of events, a quaint downtown and an active harbor make Port Angeles a joy to visit. Port Angeles sits between the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic Mountains on a natural deepwater harbor, which was originally named “Puerto de Nuestra Señora de los Angeles” (or “Port of Our Lady of the Angels”) in 1791 by Spanish explorer Don Francisco de Eliza. This was eventually shortened into its current name, Port Angeles Harbor. However, long before Don Francisco came across the region, the area was home to Klallam tribes and two major Klallam villages, I’e’nis and Tse-whit-zen. Port Angeles was established as a townsite by President Abraham Lincoln in 1862 by executive order. The Board of Trade in 1890 called Port Angeles the “Second National City,” with Washington, D.C., being the first. In 1887, the utopian Puget Sound CoOperative Colony settled in Port Angeles and population steadily grew. While the colony did not last long, it played a major role in the development of Port Angeles.

Port Angeles history

5A1419453

Built in 1914, the Clallam County Courthouse at Fourth and Lincoln streets is a Georgian-style brick structure with distinctive features such as a stained-glass skylight, marble steps and a clock tower. Nearby, the Museum at the Carnegie, 207 S. Lincoln St., offers a glimpse into Clallam County’s past. Heritage Tours offers you a guided walking tour through Port Angeles’ past. The tour takes you through historical downtown buildings, past murals that tell stories and down into the Port Angeles underground created when downtown street levels were raised above the tidal flats in 1914. The tours start from the Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center, 121 E. Railroad Ave., on the waterfront. For tour availability, phone 360-452-2363, ext. 0, or visit www.portangeles heritagetours.com.

Art, inside and out Port Angeles Fine Arts Center (1203 E. Lauridsen Blvd., 360-4174590, www.pafac.org) devotes 1,300 square feet to visual arts exhibitions. Thought-provoking exhibitions with a Northwest flavor are displayed in the semicircular hilltop gallery set against a vista of marine and mountain views. A popular attraction of the Fine Arts Center is Webster’s Woods, an outdoor art garden spread across the woods surrounding the gallery. FALL 2015 — WINTER 2016

On the waterfront Port Angeles is working to improve the downtown waterfront area. The Waterfront Development Project is underway, putting the finishing touches on Phase II. This includes a park adjacent to the west of the Esplanade at Railroad Avenue and Oak Street. It will feature two new sandy pocket beaches, a large plaza and gathering green for events, interpretive signs, local artwork, connection to the Olympic Discovery/Waterfront Trail, native landscaped areas, rain gardens, overlooks and more. The whole project is expected to be completed by early spring 2016.

Feiro Marine Life Center

P A R A D I S E

The marine life within the tanks at the Feiro Marine Life Center seems static until a volunteer points out a scallop filtering plankton and several starry flounders and great sculpins blanketed in sand. This and other lessons are what Arthur Feiro, a Port Angeles biology teacher with a passion for marine life, wanted his legacy to be in establishing the center, which is situated on the city pier next to Hollywood Beach. The Feiro Marine Life Center is an educational and scientific organization promoting marine education and conservation. Educational programs for the community are scheduled on a regular basis. Visitors can get up close to local marine life in the center’s touch and view tanks and bank of aquariums. The exhibits are representative of the marine life inhabiting the Strait of Juan de Fuca, including a young giant Pacific octopus captured in the Strait. Close to 20,000 visitors walk through the nonprofit center’s doors annually. Feiro is open seven days a week year round from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. during the winter months. Admission is free, but donations are happily accepted. For additional information, visit www.feiromarinelifecenter.org or call 360-417-6254.

Ediz Hook Ediz Hook is a 3-mile-long sand spit enhanced by rock that juts into the Strait of Juan de Fuca to form Port Angeles’ deepwater harbor. It is an ideal spot to view the city and the Olympic Mountains rising in the background. Public beaches offer beachcombing opportunities and places to view ships traveling through the Strait. Harbor seals, orcas and plenty of seabirds can be spotted from the hook. Access is via Marine Drive, which passes through the Nippon Paper Industries USA paper mill. It’s only a few minutes drive from downtown Port Angeles.

Peabody Creek Trail If you’re looking for a dog friendly trail that’s not too long and all-season friendly, check out the Peabody Creek Loop Trail near the Olympic National Park Visitors Center, 3002 Mount Angeles Road. From the west end of the parking lot, hikers will immediately descend through green trees. After about 1/4 mile, you will spot the creek. The trail crosses a bridge and under a large tree. To the left is a spur trail that will continue up the creek, but you’ll

want to veer right to continue on the loop. Follow along the trail some more and go right again. Another bridge comes up, giving you another chance to peer into the creek. From there, head back up the stairs to the parking lot. In total, this hike is a half-mile long. It does connect to a 3-mile out and back that ends on Hurricane Ridge Road if you’re looking for something a bit longer. From there, you can either hike the way you came or head down the road.

Kayaks on cars are a common sight every weekend as people flock the area to take advantage of the worldclass paddling opportunities. There are specialty kayak shops all over the Olympic Peninsula where you can buy or rent a kayak, or sign up for a guided trip. One of the more popular spots is Freshwater Bay, just west of Port Angeles. The rugged coastline and abundance of wildlife makes it a world-class paddling adventure.

The peaceful Olympic Discovery Trail is a perfect place to cycle, hike, jog, walk the dog — or, in some places, even ride a horse. The trail, sandwiched between the Olympic Mountains to the south and the Strait of Juan de Fuca to the north, will ultimately traverse 130 miles from Port Townsend to the Pacific Coast. It runs through two counties and passes over historic railroad trestles, through agricultural land and along the water. The trail is a wide, paved, nonmotorized route open to hikers, bikers and walkers, and also equestrians where appropriate. Portions of the trail are Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant. A 26-mile stretch connects Port Angeles, Sequim and Blyn. Most of it is paved. There are several access points with parking, including Railroad Bridge Park in Sequim (Hendrickson Road), Port Angeles City Pier (south end of Lincoln Street), Sequim Bay State Park and Morse creek trailhead (both off U.S. Highway 101). The Adventure Route is a wilderness trail that is an adjunct to the Olympic Discovery Trail. It is suitable for active mountain bikers, hikers and equestrians. (Road bicyclists should not use this route.) The 25-mile route begins just west of the state Highway 112 bridge and continues to the east end of Lake Crescent. Here it ties into Olympic National Park’s Spruce Railroad Trail, which travels west along Lake Crescent. Park at the trailhead located on the Highway 112 pullout north of the Elwha River, or at the Spruce Railroad trailhead off East Beach Road. Construction started in the 1990s. The trail totals 69 miles, with another 9 miles under construction. For more information visit www. olympicdiscoverytrail.com.

Lake Crescent

Autumn on the Olympic Peninsula is spectacular Yellow, red and orange are dominant colors along North Olympic Peninsula roads and highways during fall. Leafy oak and maple trees trade green leaves for an autumn pallet of colors. Hiking, biking or touring the Peninsula by car is a rewarding experience during this time of the year. A warm, sunny start to fall combined with cool night temperatures result in a spectacular fall color tour during October and November. Stroll along the Waterfront Trail in Port Angeles, a paved and flat path where you can watch leaves turn from green to yellow and red. Olympic National Park offers year-round outdoor opportunities, and the fall months offer hikers a chance to enjoy nature without being inundated with tourists. Within the park, bigleaf and vine maples stand out among evergreen, hemlock and spruce trees. A bicycle ride or stroll along the Spruce Railroad Trail, which curves along the north shore of Lake Crescent, is an autumn must. The Hoh River Trail and trails around Hurricane Ridge, Elwha Valley and Sol Duc areas are prime spots to view fall foliage. One of the best fall color viewing areas is the Hall of 62

In Sequim, Railroad Bridge Park is a photographic scene, with colorful leaves covering the bridge that crosses the Dungeness River.

The Peninsula offers diverse culinary options for a small region. The North Olympic Peninsula is known throughout the Northwest for its scrumptious berries and fresh produce. The Dungeness Valley is one of the most fertile areas to grow berries ranging from strawberries, marionberries and raspberries to blueberries and loganberries. Peninsula blackberries, which grow wild pretty much everywhere, are probably the best in the state. Also, gaining in reputation are the handcrafted cheeses highlighted by excellent locally produced wines and ales. The North Olympic Peninsula is home to a number of family-owned and operated farms, organic farms and farm stores. Farmers markets operate throughout the year in communities across the North Olympic Peninsula. In the early fall, community markets burst at the seams with garden-fresh goodies. The abundance of fresh fish and seafood from the Pacific Ocean and the area’s many rivers are a delicious delight on the Peninsula. Locally caught fish such as salmon and halibut are staples on many restaurant menus. Mussels, oysters, razor and butter clams, shrimp and highly sought-after geoducks are available seasonally on many menus. One tasty crustacean—the Dungeness crab—is a popular delicacy and is the most commercially important crab in the Pacific Northwest. The annual Dungeness Crab & Seafood Festival is held in Port Angeles each October. The dates for the 2016 festival are Oct. 7, 8 and 9. The crab receives its name from the community of Dungeness, which is located approximately five miles north of Sequim and 15 miles east of Port Angeles.

Today, the Lower Elwha Klallam tribe resides in the Lower Elwha River Valley and adjacent bluffs, but has lived on the river for more than 2,700 years. The tribe’s home once made up a majority of the Peninsula. In fact, Port Angeles was once home to a huge village called Tse-whit-zen, which was unearthed in 2003 at the west end of Port Angeles Harbor. Many of the artifacts found are being stored at the Burke Museum in Seattle. Others can be viewed at the Elwha Klallam Heritage Center, 401 E. First St. The center, completed in 2010, integrates life and vocational skills, cultural values and history, as well as

providing entrepreneurial avenues and initiate opportunities to learn traditional Klallam arts. The tribe hosts a number of community events annually including a potlatch honoring its relationship with the Port Angeles School District. The tribe operates various enterprises in the Port Angeles area including the Elwha River Casino, a friendly, cozy destination. The casino, located at 631 Stratton Road, offers more than 7,000 square feet of entertainment. It features more than 100 electronic slot machines and the River’s Edge Deli. For information about the casino, visit www.elwharivercasino.com. For details about the tribe, visit www.elwha.org.


A park in a tranquil bay Freshwater Bay, where river water spills into the Strait of Juan de Fuca, is a great place for an outing. Freshwater Bay County Park features 21 acres and has 1,450 lineal feet of public tidelands. The protected bay provides a tranquil location to launch kayaks and small boats to explore beautiful coves while enjoying panoramic views of Vancouver Island and Mount Baker. Once on the secluded bay, it is very common to come face to face with any number of marine mammals including harbor seals, orcas and

river otters. Bald eagles often can be found soaring above the bay. Freshwater Bay also is great for stand-up paddle boarding thanks to relatively shallow and calm waters. A picnic area is located on the bluff above the bay. This area, the park’s restrooms and covered picnic shelters are open May 15 through Sept. 15. The lower picnic site, concrete launch ramp and beach access areas are open throughout the year. Freshwater Bay is only 10 miles west of Port Angeles. Just drive west on state Highway 112, then travel 3 miles north on Freshwater Bay Road.

Property management is not our sideline


Marymere Falls is a 1.8-mile roundtrip trail that leads day hikers through some of Olympic National Park’s most pristine environment, weaving through old-growth forest. To reach the falls, take U.S. Highway 101 west from Port Angeles to the Storm King Ranger Station on Lake Crescent. The trailhead begins as a paved walkway that runs alongside the ranger station, a re-creation of the original station built in the early 1900s. You’ll see a nice view of the north side of the lake before wandering inland toward the falls. For about the first three-quarters of a mile of the trail wheelchairs may be used with assistance. The final trek to the falls is a steep uphill climb, with the choice of two lookouts, one about 50 feet above the falls, the other at its base.

Madison Creek Falls Madison Creek Falls is an easy hike just west of Port Angeles. Follow U.S. Highway 101 to Olympic Hot Springs Road. Turn south and follow the road to the parking area. The trailhead begins right at the parking lot. This is Olympic National Park’s most accessible waterfall — only about 150 yards from the parking area over a fully paved, accessible trail. The falls is listed as a 60-foot-high cascade by the National Park Service. Several old-growth trees and stumps line the trail. A nearby picnic area in an old orchard provides an easy place for families to dine and enjoy the beauty of the Elwha Valley.

Olympic National Park often is called “three parks in one.” Where else can you view breathtaking mountain vistas, colorful tide pools and some of the largest remnants of ancient forests in the nation in just one day? The park protects 922,651 acres encompassing three distinctly different ecosystems — rugged glacier-capped mountains, more than 70 miles of wild Pacific Ocean coast and magnificent stands of old-growth trees and temperate rain forest. A United Nations World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Reserve, the park is celebrated for its dramatic variety and untamed beauty. About 3 million people visit the park each year.

Before starting your exploration of Olympic National Park on foot or by vehicle Stop by the Olympic National Park Visitor Center, 3002 Mount Angeles Road in Port Angeles, to pick up a map, learn about park passes and talk to a ranger about what there is to see and do during your visit. An Olympic National Park pass is good for up to seven consecutive days at any Olympic National Park entrance. The pass costs $20 for vehicles, $10 for a motorcycle or $7 for individuals on foot or bicycle. Children 15 and younger are admitted free of charge. An annual pass costs $40 and is good at any Olympic National Park entrance for one year from the month of purchase. The America the Beautiful pass costs $80 and allows admission to all national parks for one year from the month of purchase. A lifetime American the Beautiful pass is available for seniors (62 and older) for $10. For additional pass information, including other discounted and volunteer pass options, visit www.nps.gov/olym. Ruby Beach

Getting around the park Olympic National Park can be easily visited on foot or by car. More than 600 miles of trails weave throughout the park, from short, easy loop trails to rigorous, primitive hikes along high passes or ocean beaches. For most of the arduous trips inside the park, you’ll need a topographic map, which you can buy at visitor centers and ranger stations. For those who prefer to see some of this nearly 1-million-acre park by car, there are 168 miles of paved and gravel roads that provide access to various points. All park roads are “spur roads” off

70

U.S. Highway 101. Remember: No roads traverse the Olympic wilderness. The rugged wilderness is a fragile environment. To help protect animal and plant life, waterways and each person’s wilderness experience, the National Park Service creates and enforces a variety of regulations. The Olympic National Park Visitor Center on the way to Hurricane Ridge in Port Angeles is fully accessible, as is the Hoh Rain Forest Visitor Center on the West End. Other centers and ranger stations provide varying levels of accessibility and hours of operation. For details, visit www.nps.gov/olym.

Visit Hurricane Ridge If your idea of a perfect winter vacation is mountain peaks and fun in the snow, then Hurricane Ridge is the place to be. The towering 5,242-foot winter playground receives an average of 30 to 35 feet of snow and creates winter fun for families with skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and tubing. Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center is a great place to start your visit at the Ridge. Located just before Hurricane Ridge Road ends, stop at the center for brochures, maps, souvenirs, food and tips regarding your visit. During the winter months, you can rent snowshoes and alpine and crosscountry skis from the ski shop. You can view the majestic Olympic Mountains from the center’s upper levels and take in interpretive exhibits. Hurricane Ridge has a number of hiking trails that begin near the visitor center that turn into snowshoe and cross-country ski routes when the snow falls. The Hurricane Ridge Ski and Snowboard Area is a small, family oriented ski area offering a quality winter sports experience without the high cost and congestion of most ski areas. The Ridge boasts some groomed areas, but for the accomplished skier or snowboarder, the steeps, bowls and glades are well worth the effort it takes to hike there. The Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports

Hurricane Ridge Club is a nonprofit organization that operates both rope tows and the Poma lift atop the mountain on selected weekends and Monday holidays. During the winter season — usually mid-December through March — the rope tows and Poma lift operate on Saturdays, Sundays and some holidays. For up-to-date information and rates about the Hurricane Ridge Ski and Snowboard Area, phone the Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Club at 360-4572879 or visit www.hurricaneridge.com. A small kids’ tubing and sledding area (for children 8 and younger) is located across from the visitor center. The park does not offer tube rental, nor are there facilities at the top for inflating tubes. The Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Club offers a supervised tubing area within its ski area. The club rents tubes with handles and leash. Non-club tubes or sleds are not permitted in this area. There is no tubing, hiking or sledding allowed in the downhill ski areas.

From the water’s edge The Olympic Mountains are not very high — Mount Olympus, the tallest is just under 8,000 feet — but they rise almost from the water’s edge. The mountains intercept moisturerich air masses that move in from the Pacific Ocean. As this air is forced over the mountains, it cools and releases moisture in the form of rain and snow. At lower elevations, rain nurtures the forests, while at higher elevations snow adds to glacial masses that relentlessly carve the landscape. The mountains wring precipitation out of the air so effectively that areas

on the northeast corner experience a rain shadow and get very little rain. For eons, wind and rain washed sediment from land into the ocean. Powerful forces fractured, folded and overturned rock formations. Ice Age glacial sheets from the north carved out the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Hood Canal, isolating the Olympics from nearby land masses. Surrounded on three sides by water and crowned by alpine glaciers, the Olympics retain the distinctive character developed from their isolation. There are about 266 glaciers crowing the Olympic peaks. The most prominent glaciers are on Mount Olympus,

covering about 10 square miles. Beyond the Olympic complex are the Mount Carrie, Bailey Range, Mount Christie and Mount Anderson glaciers. In the company of these glaciers are perpetual snowbanks that have the superficial appearance of glacial ice. The movement of glacial ice past and present has produced striking geological features throughout the Olympic Mountains. Travel on the Olympic Mountains’ glacial ice is a specialized skill of mountaineering requiring the basic use of climbing rope, ice ax, crampons and good judgment by a climber accompanied by experienced leaders.

This coastline looks much as it did when Native Americans built their first villages thousands of years before Europeans arrived. The coast is where the land meets the sea, vibrating with life and energy — arches and sea stacks; the roar of crashing waves; the calls of gulls, bald eagles, cormorants and black oystercatchers; dramatic sunsets and the vastness of the ocean. At low tide, you can walk toward the surf, stopping at various tide pools along the way. If you squat down and spend some time looking in a tide pool, you will be amazed at what you see; what Second Beach first look like rocks are, in fact, small sea animals.

JOYCE

Only a few miles away from Port Angeles, this small-town gem is a must-see destination for many reasons

For a small town, Joyce has a big personality. What the town, located west of Port Angeles, lacks in size it makes up for with fun festivals, historical sites and a general store that offers an eclectic array of goods you need to see to believe.

Joyce General Store is what you think of when you think of a smalltown mom-and-pop shop. This quaint little store is located just 16 miles west of Port Angeles in the town of Joyce.

The store, built in 1911 by Joe Joyce, from whom the town gets its name, remains much the same — false front, beaded ceilings, wooden floor. Much of the store’s interior is made of remnants from the opera house

and Markum House, which stood in the township of Port Crescent in the 1800s. Port Crescent was located a few miles north of Joyce on what is now Crescent Beach. Joyce Museum, housed in a former railroad station, is located next door. Built in 1915, it is considered to the last remaining log depot from the Milwaukee Road. Museum displays include railroad memorabilia with photos and artifacts of Port Crescent, Gettysburg, Disque, Twin, Piedmont, Camp Hayden at Tongue Point, Lake Crescent, Sol Duc and, of course, Joyce. It is built of Alaska yellow cedar and was restored by the Joyce Museum Society in 2002. Phone 360-928-3568 for hours of operation and other information. A popular local event is the Joyce Daze Wild Blackberry Festival, a one-day event that takes place the first weekend of August and features blackberry pies, pie-making contests, a community pancake breakfast, a lively parade and arts and crafts vendors. For information, visit www.joycewa. com/joycedaze.htm.

Following the Whale Trail to beautiful overlooks The scenic Whale Trail is a string of 20 locations around Washington where visitors are likely to view whales and other marine mammals from shore. A sign at Salt Creek Recreation Area — positioned in the northwest corner of the park, near the stairs leading to Tongue Point — overlooks Crescent Bay, where gray whales 78

often are seen. Along state Highway 112, which is also known as the Strait of Juan de Fuca National Scenic Byway, Whale Trail sites are found at Freshwater Bay County Park, the Sekiu Overlook and Shipwreck Point. For additional information about the trail and a trail detailed map, visit www.thewhaletrail.org.

FALL 2015 — WINTER 2016


Salt Creek offers great tide pools, camping Salt Creek Recreation Area is a 196-acre Clallam County park near Joyce. One of the county’s most popular parks, it offers visitors forests, rocky bluffs, tide pools, sandy beach and campsites, and features panoramic views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Crescent Bay and Vancouver Island. Highlighted as a premiere birding site, Salt Creek is on the National Audubon’s Olympic Loop of the Greater Washington State Birding Trail. The area was once the location of Camp Hayden, a World War II harbor defense military base. Two concrete bunkers preserve its military history. The area was purchased after being decommissioned at the end of World War II. The adjacent Tongue Point Marine Life Sanctuary includes a rocky outcropping that, at low tide, reveals starfish, sea urchins, limpets, sea cucumbers and many other forms of marine life. When you visit tidal areas, practice tide pool etiquette. Remember the Makah tribal saying: “Take nothing but pictures; leave nothing but footprints.” The waters surrounding Salt Creek are popular spots for kayaking, surfing and paddleboarding. Mountain bikers and hikers can access the state’s Striped Peak Recreation Area from the Salt

Creek area. Salt Creek is a popular camping sites for families. Park amenities include one picnic shelter with a fireplace, play equipment, basketball, volleyball and horseshoe courts and a softball field, plus several trails. Camping information: 39 utility sites ($25 for county residents, $28 for non-county) and 53 standard sites ($20 for county residents, $23 otherwise). Half of the sites may be reserved in advance; the rest are open on a firstcome, first-served basis; two bathrooms are available with showers; limit six people per campsite; pets allowed on leashes; firewood available for a fee. Campsite reservations are done only by mail. Reservations begin to be accepted in January for that year. The sooner campers get in the completed forms, the reservation fee and

the first night’s camping fee, the better their chance of getting their reservation confirmed. All reservations must be received at the park a minimum of two weeks prior to their desired camping date. Utility sites 1-15 are available on a first-come, first-served basis; utility sites 16-39 may be reserved in advance. Standard sites 40-92 don’t have utility hook-ups and sites 50-68 and 71-72 may be reserved in advance. For details, visit www.clallam.net/ Parks/SaltCreek.html or phone 360928-3441. To get there: Take state Highway 112 west from Port Angeles toward Joyce. After nine miles, turn right (north) onto Camp Hayden Road (near Milepost 54). Travel about three miles. The park entrance will be located on your right.

Drop in at the Joyce General Store and step into a building that has had few changes since the early 1900’s. The false front, beaded ceiling, oiled wood floors and many of the fixtures remain the same. Much of the interior of the store is from the Markhum House Hotel which stood in the now vanished town of Port Crescent in the 1800’s. The store carries gas, groceries, tackle, bait, and other items.

The Olympic Peninsula’s coastal area includes Clallam Bay and Sekiu, twin seafront towns about 50 miles west of Port Angeles, and Neah Bay, home of the Makah tribe. The drive offers fabulous views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and plenty of places to stop for a picnic, to snap a photograph or to search tide pools. A stop at the Makah Cultural and Research Center in Neah Bay is a must. The center features artifacts from Ozette, an ancient whaling village uncovered by tidal erosion.

View along Cape Flattery Trail

Enjoy amazing views from the edge of the Earth The Cape Flattery Trail, a short trail featuring boardwalk, stone and gravel steps, and four observation decks, offers breathtaking views of the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, Tatoosh Island and the Cape Flattery Lighthouse. The lighthouse, built in 1858, is now automated. The trail is a Makah Wilderness Area, so please stay on the trail and supervise children closely. You will need a $10 per car Makah Recreation Permit to hike the Cape Flattery Trail. Permits can be purchased at the Makah Marina, Washburn’s General Store, Makah Tribal Center, Makah Mini Mart and the Makah Museum.

The Makah Nation is located in Neah Bay on the northwestern tip of the Peninsula. It is the home of the Makah Cultural and Research Center, which houses, among other things, the extensive Ozette collection. Turn to Page 86 to learn more about the museum. From the reservation, you also can reach Cape Flattery, the northwesternmost point of the lower 48 states. Each August, the tribe invites the public to celebrate Makah Days, an annual event featuring traditional dancing, singing and drumming, canoe races, salmon bakes, fireworks and more. The 2016 Makah Days will be held Aug. 26-28. Visit www.makah.com for more information about the tribe.

Wildlife at every turn is part of the experience Clallam Bay, Sekiu and Neah Bay are excellent places to view wildlife ranging from bald eagles and a vast array of sea birds to harbor seals, sea lions, sea otters, gray and humpback whales. Fall is a good time to view whales along the byway when gray whales follow the shorelines and bays in search of food. As you travel along state Highway 112, which is also known as the Strait of Juan de Fuca National Scenic Byway, you will find easy access to a number of beaches. Stop to take a photo or two and see what the tide left behind. The winding drive offers several just-off-the-road overlooks that are perfect for trying to spot whales as they move along the coast in search of food. FALL 2015 — WINTER 2016

In 1970, tidal erosion uncovered an ancient whaling village at Ozette, parts of which had been covered by a mudslide hundreds of years ago. The artifacts now make up part of the exhibits at the museum, located on the left as you enter Neah Bay. Its Ozette collection is the largest archaeological collection of any U.S. tribe. On display are about 1 percent of the 55,000 artifacts recovered from

RV

Ozette, all between 300-500 years old. Other items on display include artifacts from an archaeological dig at the Hoko River, west of Sekiu. The dig revealed a fishing camp nearly 3,000 years old and a rock shelter about 1,000 years old. The museum features illustrated displays with information on Makah history, a 26-foot-long skeleton of a 31-ton gray whale suspended over handcrafted cedar canoes. The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. except on New Year’s Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. For details, phone 360-645-2711, www.makahmuseum.com.

Pillar Point County Park is located 10 miles east of Clallam Bay along scenic Highway 112. The 4.3-acre offers saltwater-beach access and a concrete launch ramp for small boats, and is a great place to start a kayak trip. The mudflats are a hunting spot for crabs when the season opens. Pull off the road for a picnic or to stretch your legs. Picnic tables are nestled under shade trees and provide a panoramic viewpoint to enjoy watching birds search for food in tide pools and in the cool waters offshore. This is also the location of an Audubon-designated IBA (Important Bird Area) due to the unique estuary bay shoreline habitat and wide Pillar Point County Park variety of shorebirds.

Clallam Bay Spit Community Beach County Park is a 33-acre dayuse county park located in the center of the Clallam Bay community, where the water of the Clallam River empties into the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The county park is jointly managed with Washington State Parks. The park includes public access to Clallam Spit, a mile of a sand/gravel saltwater beach and access to the Clallam River. The park’s location provides a constant source of food for birds. Watch for bald eagles and osprey feeding on the beach. Watch for oystercatchers, cormorants and other birds on offshore rocks. It also is common to see a variety of marine life just offshore including harbor seals, sea lions and sometimes even whales. The interaction between the river and the Strait of Juan de Fuca’s tides often result in drastic changes in the landscape. A picnic area and full-service restroom are available. The area is a wonderful place to stretch your legs before hitting the road again to continue to Sekiu and Neah Bay.

Fishing, hunting lowdown Before setting out, know the rules and regulations Everything from heavy, world-class salmon to small, fun-to-fight alpine brook trout can be caught with a rod and reel in waters across the North Olympic Peninsula. Be sure to pick up a copy of the Washington State Sportfishing Rules pamphlet while you’re here, as well as Olympic National Park official sportfishing guide. The pamphlets detail boundaries and regulations, as well as licensing. Current regulations usually are available at most tackle shops, sporting goods stores or wherever fishing licenses are sold. Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife fishing regulations are at 360-902-2500, wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/ regulations.

Need to know Licensing: Anglers can renew their license by visiting fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov or by calling 866-246-9453. A list of license vendors is available online at wdfw.wa.gov/licensing/vendors. Regulations: All anglers should refer to Fish and Wildlife fishing regulations before departing on any trip. Refer to the state’s Sportfishing Rules pamphlet, which is available where licenses are sold or online. Check regulations before fishing. Boater alert: A warning to private boaters with state fishing licenses only:

make sure you stay on the U.S. side of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Those wanting to try the Canadian half first must obtain a license from British Columbia. More information: Peninsula Daily News publishes local outdoors columns in the sports section Thursdays and Fridays. They also are available online at www.peninsuladailynews.com.

Hunting Peninsula visitors can hunt everything from elk and deer to bear and cougar — even rabbit and grouse. Areas around Forks, Clallam Bay, Neah Bay and Sequim provide chances at large Roosevelt elk, while blacktail deer can be found all around the North Olympic Peninsula. Details about hunting seasons and regulations can be found in the Washington Big Game Hunting Seasons and Regulations pamphlet or the Migratory Waterfowl and Upland Game Season rules pamphlet. Both of the pamphlets outline specific information about boundaries, restrictions and licensing information. Pamphlets usually are available wherever licenses are sold and can also be downloaded at wdfw.wa.gov. Note that hunting is prohibited inside Olympic National Park. Washington law requires first-time hunters born after Jan. 1, 1972, to

Ready to try shellfishing? On the North Olympic Peninsula you can find bucket-loads of oysters and clams. Going after crab and shrimp also are popular pursuits. Seasons fluctuate, and anyone wanting to go after razor or other clams, oysters and crab should first check the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife regulations. The best way to figure out what’s open and what’s not is to visit www. wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/shellfish. Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge sets its own seasons and rules. Contact the refuge at 360-457-8451. Licenses are required for shellfish harvesting and may be purchased at most tackle shops and other stores.

A coastal favorite Razor clams are available on many coastal beaches, but domoic acid, a naturally occurring marine toxin that can cause amnesic shellfish poisoning in humans, sometimes causes digging closures. But in recent years, beaches have routinely opened to harvesting. Other species of shellfish are currently considered unsafe and should not be harvested from any beach on the state coastline. Look for informational signs at beach trailheads about closures. For information on which shellfish are and are not safe, and dates and locations on seasons, phone the state Department of Health’s beach closures/shellfish toxin hotline at 800-562-5632 or log onto the Fish and Wildlife website at www.wdfw.wa.gov.

Trees covered in moss surrounded by enormous ferns, beaches dotted with sea stacks and rolling rivers tinted by glacier powder dominate the wild and wonderful West End. The Hoh Rain Forest receives 100-plus inches of rain each year and is one of the best examples of a temperate rain forest in the world.

Abundant rain forests, wild rivers and coastal beaches are just part of the allure of the western portion of Clallam County, simply called the West End by locals. The lush forests in the Quinault, Queets, Hoh and Bogachiel valleys are spectacular examples of primeval temperate rain forest. The drive to get there is beautiful in its own right, but the going can be a bit slower than most Peninsula trips. The main route, U.S. Highway 101, twists and turns around Lake Crescent, and you may compete with recreational vehicles and log trucks, but gaining an appreciation for natural beauty, pristine even outside Olympic National Park boundaries, makes it worthwhile. Forks acts as the gateway to the Hoh Rain Forest in Olympic National Park. A self-guided tour allows those wanting a look back in history to stop at signposts in downtown Forks that feature pictures and stories about historic buildings or happenings. For more information, stop by the Forks Chamber of Commerce at 1411 S. Forks Ave. (360-374-2531, www.forkswa.com).

A quiet rain forest stroll The Bogachiel Rain Forest Trail, located about 15 minutes south of Forks, offers an easy stroll through old-growth trees, hanging lichen mosses, ferns, stands of big-leaf maple and cedar trees and wetlands. The Bogachiel Rain Forest is one of four Olympic rain forest valleys. The others are Hoh, Queets and Quinault. This dog-and-family-friendly trail provides an opportunity to view oldgrowth rain forest in a wetland setting. The trail has several loops and horses are allowed on some sections. To reach the trailhead travel about 5 miles south on U.S. Highway 101, turn on Undi Road, across from Bogachiel State Park, and drive another 5 miles. Most of the road is paved, but the last section is gravel.

Still bitten by Twilight

FORKS

Die-hard Twilight fans, eager to see the location of author Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling books, travel to the North Olympic Peninsula to retrace the footprints of their favorite characters. Although none of the movies was filmed in the small town of Forks, people from all over the world have come to the West End, making stops everywhere from Forks High School, where Bella and Edward met, out to LaPush, where Bella visits her werewolf friend, Jacob. The majority of the four books of the Twilight series — and five motion pictures — are set in Forks. Fiction and real life intertwine as fans can find locations from the novels throughout town. Although Meyer didn’t have specific Forks homes in mind when she wrote the books — she didn’t visit Forks until after the first book was completed — the Forks Chamber of Commerce has dubbed a couple of homes as those of Bella and Edward. The McIrvin residence at 775 K St. is considered the home of Bella and her police chief father. Fans are welcome to drive by the house, but since it is a private residence, they are asked to respect the family’s privacy and not go on the property or ask to take photos inside. The Miller Tree Inn, 654 E. Division St., with its large windows and open and airy layout, fits the bill for the Cullen house, residence of Edward and his vampire family. Feel free to take pictures, but do not go inside unless you are a guest.

Outfitters” store owned by the Newton family and where Bella works. Welcome to Forks sign, located at the east entrance to Forks, is a very popular spot to take a photo.

Don’t forget about LaPush About 15 miles west of Forks on state Highway 110 is LaPush, another town with Twilight fame. LaPush may be off-limits to vampires, but werewolf fans — and yes, vampire fans, too — can visit the Quileute reservation where Bella’s friend Jacob lives. Visitors can enjoy the beauty of the Quileute Reservation while checking out First Beach, where Bella first learned of “the cold ones” from Jacob, who later is revealed to be a werewolf. The cliffs where the werewolves and Bella are said to have gone cliff diving also are visible from LaPush — but visitors should know that cliff diving is dangerous and illegal. The Quileute have a connection to wolves in legends, but no werewolves and vampires actually exist in them. A field near the Quileute Prairie Cemetery reportedly has been the site of some very unusual baseball games. Be respectful of the cemetery.

More to see in Port Angeles The former Lincoln Theater, 132 E. First St., is considered the same cinema where some of the characters see films. The theater closed in 2013. The first three film adaptations of the books were shown here. Just down the street from the theater is Bella Italia, 118 E. First St., where Edward and Bella have their first date (called La Bella Italia in the novel) after he saves her in the alley. The bookstore where Bella goes to shop after her friends look for dresses has two possibilities. It could either be Odyssey Bookshop, 114 W. Front St., or Port Book and News, 104 E. First St., which are within walking distance of Bella Italia. Although the store where Bella’s friends buy their dresses also is not named in the books, Black Diamond Bridal, 109 E. First St., is considered the store where the characters shopped in Port Angeles. Bella would have flown into quaint William R. Fairchild International Airport, located off Airport Road on the outskirts of Port Angeles.

Wild coast is calling A camera is very important to carry along during your visit to Washington’s coastal beaches, and the West End has some of the most accessible beaches on the North Olympic Peninsula. Rialto Beach features views of offshore islands, pounding waves, giant drift logs and plenty of beach cobbles, making it one of the most popular beaches to visit. Hole-in-the-Wall, a natural seacarved arch, is about 1.5 miles north of Rialto Beach. It is within the Olympic wilderness but can easily be reached Beach 4 in the Kalaloch area at low tide from Rialto Beach. At about 1 mile, you will reach Ellen Creek. To avoid wet footwear, look for a log to cross or take your shoes off to plod through the chilly water. Do not cross through Hole-in-theSurrounded by Natural Northwest Wonders Wall when the tide begins to cover the floor of the arch. Use care when exploring under and near the arch. Rialto Beach, located about 75 miles from Port Angeles, is accessible by Mora Road, off LaPush Road. The Kalaloch area of Washington’s wild, wondrous coast — about 35 miles south of Forks on U.S. Highway 101 — has all-season attractions. Ruby Beach is at the northernmost tip of the seven main spots in the Kalaloch area. Marked trails offer easy access to pristine, sandy beaches. Migrating shorebirds and sea mammals such as otters can be observed, especially with binoculars. At low tide, seek out the tide pools for a glimpse at all the marine life.

WILD COAST, continued from page 96

As you clamber over these beached logs, it’s hard to believe you can’t always see them coming, but as a wave crests, it can obscure your view of what is riding behind it. Those who want to stay a night or two in the area have a few options. Olympic National Park provides a campground with flush toilets and water, although no utility hookups are available for recreational vehicles. Kalaloch Lodge also has rustic cabins and other accommodations. Both locations are open all year. More information can be obtained by phoning the park at 360-565-3130 or the lodge at 360-962-2271. The Peninsula’s northern and Pacific coasts offer a wealth of beaches for recreational fun, but if you explore keep an eye on the tides and surf. Rescues by the Coast Guard, Olympic National Park rangers or both are occasionally necessary for people who either failed or didn’t know to consult a tide table and weather report. Headlands extending out to the water’s edge can create alcoves and grottos that may be readily accessible by thin strips of beach exposed during low tides. Unfortunately, when the tide turns, the incoming waters can trap visitors who must frantically scramble to reach high ground. Beware of “king tides” — higherthan-usual winter tides that embrace Washington shores — which occur when the gravitational pulls of the sun and moon reinforce one another. Informative and easy-to-read tide books are available at local shops across the North Peninsula. Keep an eye on waves, whether you’re in the water or along the shore, and be aware of tidal changes. Remember that logs so easily tossed ashore are still loose so care should be taken when climbing over logs. Many a beachcomber has fallen and been hurt when logs shift on the beach.

Hoh Rain Forest

So many magnificent rain forests East of U.S. 101, Olympic National Park’s Hoh Rain Forest ­­— which is the result of the West End getting 100plus inches of rain each year — is one of the best examples of a temperate rain forest in the world. Less than an hour from Forks, the forest is reached by the Upper Hoh Road off Highway 101. The trees of the forest can grow as tall as 300 feet with a circumference of 23 feet around. Start exploring the forest by hiking the Hall of Mosses. This family friendly hike starts at the visitor center at the end of Hoh River Road. The stroll is an easy 0.8-mile loop that takes about 45 minutes round-trip. Near the center of the Hall of Mosses is the Spruce Nature Trail, a 1.2-mile loop through the rain forest to the Hoh River.

FALL 2015 — WINTER 2016

F

The trail meanders by the Hoh River and provides a chance to view elk exploring its braided gravel bars and cobbled rock banks. Budget about an hour for the roundtrip hike. Travel south on Highway 101, and you’ll come across the green scenery at Queets. As the road begins to wind inland, take a drive to Lake Quinault. This glacier-carved lake is surrounded by the old-growth trees of the Quinault Rain Forest. Sometimes called the Valley of the Rain Forest Giants, this area is home to some of the state’s largest and most impressive trees. A 30-mile drive loops around Lake Quinault and could reveal elk feeding on vine maple buds. A 0.2-mile trail near Lake Quinault Lodge will take you to the largest Sitka spruce tree in the world.

Learn about West End logging traditions, more A stop by the Forks Timber Museum and the Forks Loggers Memorial is a must. You can’t miss the museum, which is located near the south end of town. Just keep an eye out for a 12-foot-tall carved logger. This cozy little museum has exhibits depicting local history dating back to the 1870s. Constructed in 1990 by students in the Forks High School carpentry class, the 3,200-square-foot building provides a glimpse into the local history of the timber industry. Among the displays are an old-time steam donkey, threshing machine and bunkhouse. A free, self-guided tour allows those looking to explore history to stop at one of nine signposts in downtown Forks that feature pictures and stories about historic buildings or happenings. Cross-cut and chain saws used by loggers, a bunkhouse showing where they slept and how they lived, and books and video footage of men working are other highlights of the tour. Once outside the museum, stop in the memorial garden for a moment. There’s even a fire lookout tower and nature trails to stretch your legs.

British Columbia is a convenient ferry ride from the North Olympic Peninsula

OFF THE PENINSULA

Victoria’s Inner Harbor from the deck of the MV Coho

Market Square

Victoria offers rich history, British charm Victoria, a city full of classic British charm, is just a ferry ride away. While the trip from Port Angeles may not exactly rank as an overseas journey, travelers definitely are in another country when they set foot in Victoria. You can make the 20-mile trip to Victoria for a one-day trek, a weekend getaway or a longer vacation, using the quaint city with the British atmosphere as the starting point for an extended tour of Vancouver Island. The MV Coho ferry from Port Angeles lands in downtown Victoria — a city with a metropolitan population of more than 300,000 — after a scenic cruise across the Strait of Juan de Fuca and through Victoria Harbour. The Fairmont Empress Hotel dominates the waterfront as ferry passengers arrive at Victoria’s Inner Harbour from Port Angeles. Harbor tours, available by a number of operators, give a different perspective of the distinctly British city. Parliament Buildings, the Royal British Columbia Museum, downtown shops, restaurants and Chinatown

are all located within walking distance of the ferry landing. Public transportation easily can be found to reach other popular sites. First-time visitors might want to start at the Greater Victoria Visitor Information Center, on the waterfront across from the imposing Empress Hotel, just a short walk from the ferry terminal. The center has maps, brochures, information on accommodations and friendly advice. The Royal British Columbia Museum, located near the Parliament Buildings, has special exhibits and an unparalleled First Nations area. The National Geographic Theater at the museum presents an IMAX experience with a six-story-tall screen showing several movies that provide worldwide adventures. Plenty of shops can be found along Government Street. The real ‘‘main street,’’ however, is Douglas Street, and everything from major department stores to out-ofthe-way specialty shops can be found on side streets off Douglas between

FALL 2015 — WINTER 2016

F

Courtney and Pembroke. Food-fanciers should note that some of the finest bakeries in the world are found on Fort Street between Douglas and Blanshard. Authentic British and Irish pubs are a great way to take a break from shopping and walking. Old-fashioned London double-decker buses leave on tours from in front of the Empress Hotel for such attractions as the world-famous Butchart Gardens. Or, if you’re looking for a more romantic kind of transport, there are horse-drawn carriages available.
