Hurricane Ridge At an elevation of 5,242 feet, Hurricane Ridge is one of the Olympic Peninsula’s biggest attractions. In the summer, visitors enjoy spectacular views of the national park and hikes through the forest and mountains. In the winter, the area turns into a skiing, snowshoeing and snowboarding destination.

Dungeness Spit The Dungeness Spit is the largest natural sand hook in the wood. The vast sandy beach, inhabited by assorted waterfowl and critters, rarely seems crowded. At the end of the 5-mile spit is the New Dungeness Lighthouse, where you can even serve as a lighthouse keeper for a week.

Hoh Rain Forest The Hoh Rain Forest receives 12 to 14 feet of precipitation each year, resulting in a lush, green canopy of coniferous and deciduous trees and a blanket of ferns and mosses. The rain forest is about an hour from Forks. Easy hikes that begin near the Hoh Rain Forest’s visitor center wind through the primeval wilderness.

Point Wilson Perched on the northeastern tip of the Olympic Peninsula, Point Wilson at Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend is the perfect place to catch the sunrise as the first rays hit the ground. The park rests on a high bluff overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Numerous beach trails can be found throughout the park. The Point Wilson Light Station has been closed to the public since its automation in 1976, but visitors still can walk around the area.

Lake Crescent Lake Crescent has something for everyone. Hike on one of the trails surrounding the lake or rent a kayak and explore the lake from the water. Lake Crescent is a glacially carved lake located within Olympic National Park. The second deepest lake in Washington, Lake Crescent has a depth of 624 feet.

Cape Flattery Cape Flattery is the northwesternmost point of the contiguous United States. It can be reached via a 3/4mile hike along a picturesque trail that is mostly boardwalk. From Cape Flattery, you can view the automated lighthouse on Tatoosh Island. 10

ELWHA RIVER RESTORATION PROJECT

Site of former Elwha Dam REMOVAL AND RESTORATION

Elwha dams

In the early 1900s, entrepreneur Thomas Aldwell sought to harness the energy of the Elwha River and spearheaded the 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, which was 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

12

Pacific Northwest. Spawning runs were reduced from 400,000 fish anually 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 examined several options for achieving full restoration, but concluded that removal of both dams was the only way to achieve it. Tear-down of the dams began in September 2011 and was completed in March 2014.

NORTH OLYMPIC PENINSULA GUIDE

F

SPRING SUMMER 2014

Teardown of the 108-foot Elwha Dam and the 210-foot Glines Canyon Dam is one of the largest dam removal projects in the world’s history. Elwha Dam was removed in 2012 and Glines Canyon was removed in March 2014. The process is part of the Elwha River Restoration Project, which will allow the Elwha River to flow through its native channel for the first time in more than 100 years and allow salmon to migrate upstream to spawn in the nutrient-rich habitat. Much of the fine sediment that had built up in the dams’ reservoirs, named Lake Aldwell and Lake Mills, has been released by the removal process and is changing the shape of the river and its mouth. You can view the changing river at several locations: LOWER ELWHA KLALLAM TRIBAL CENTER At the tribal center off Lower Elwha Road, walk the 0.7-mile Warrior Path loop to the Elwha River estuary. ELWHA RIVER BRIDGE Cross the double-deck Elwha River Road bridge to get a bird’s-eye view of the river. Take U.S. Highway 101 to Laird Road and turn onto Elwha River Road. ELWHA DAM VIEWPOINT A short trail leads to an overlook at the former Elwha Dam site. The parking area is off Lower Dam Road, via state Highway 112. ELWHA RIVER VIEWPOINT Stop to observe the changing landscape where the river flows through the site of the former Lake Aldwell reservoir. A turnoff is found off Highway 101 just west of Port Angeles. ELWHA VALLEY See the spectacular Elwha Valley area of Olympic National Park and watch the changing river. Turn onto Olympic Hot Springs Road off Highway 101.

Discovering the emerald towns of Quilcene and Brinnon is like finding a gem. These quiet towns offer visitors a place to relax and experience life the way it should be lived. Wellknown 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. Nearby are pristine scuba diving opportunities. 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. For those who prefer the RV life or tent camping, opportunities exist in several federal, state, county or private campgrounds. Quilcene and Brinnon are nestled among the trees of the Olympic National Forest. Some sites are 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. And there are a few fishing lakes near Quilcene. Accommodations, from well-appointed cabins to lodges to B&Bs, 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.

The road to the top of Mount Walker is open seasonally and may be closed due to weather. A year-round option is to park at the base for a two-mile hike. Learn about salmon at the Quilcene National Fish Hatchery, which is two miles south of Quilcene where the river crosses under U.S. Highway 101. Several other hiking and equestrian trails, from easy to challenging, allow the visitor to experience nature and serene vistas. Dosewallips Road is a popular eastern portal to Olympic National Park for hikers and equestrians. Quilcene has a number of galleries that feature quality artwork and crafts. The Saturday of Memorial Day weekend in Quilcene, artists present demonstrations at the Olympic Art Gallery. Each autumn features the one-day Quilcene Fair, Parade and Classic Car show. The visitor information center at the Forest Service Ranger Station, 295142 Highway 101, on the south end of Quilcene, is open daily. Additional details and information are available from the North Hood Canal Chamber of Commerce at emeraldtowns.com.

ShrimpFest 2014 Saturday-Sunday May 24-25

The Emerald Towns Alliance has announced that ShrimpFest is returning in 2014. ShrimpFest’s new location is approximately 3 miles north of the old location, north of the Yelvik General Store, 251 Hjelvicks Road, Brinnon, and south of Cove RV Park & Country Store on U.S. Highway 101. The festival features live music, local vendors, belt sander races, delicious food, great fun and shrimp. For more information, e-mail shrimpfest@hotmail.com or call 360-796-4456.


GETTING HERE: Most visitors to the North Olympic Peninsula cross the Hood Canal Bridge, the longest floating bridge over salt water in the world at 7,869 feet (6,521 feet of it floating). The bridge connects the Kitsap Peninsula to the Olympic Peninsula along state Highway 104. Note that the bridge opens for marine vessels that are too large or tall to pass underneath its trusses. Vessel openings — which can take about 30 minutes to complete — are not announced in advance. Phone 5-1-1 for current traffic information.

DON’T FORGET TO STOP AT THE OLYMPIC MUSIC FESTIVAL A summer surprise along Highway 104 between the Hood Canal bridge and Discovery Bay is the Olympic Music Festival near Quilcene. Founded in 1984 by professional musicians, the festival is a summering celebration of classical chamber music performed in a 100-year-old dairy barn by some of the best and brightest classical musicians in the country. Make your reservations early and you can claim a pew or hay bale to have a front-row seat. Pick a comfortable spot outside the barn in open seating or stroll around the farmstead as sweet sounds of violins and cellos waft in the air.

Concerts in the Barn

Please note that no pets are allowed on the farm and that it is dangerous to leave them in a vehicle, so it’s best to leave them at home. Now in its 32nd year, the festival draws some 10,000 concert visitors throughout the summer and features two dozen guest musicians. The 2014 season runs from June 28 to Sept. 7 every Saturday and Sunday with concerts at 2 p.m. Concerts typically run several hours. For more information, go to olympicmusicfestival.org or call 360-732-4800. Tickets are available online, over the phone or at the festival gate at 7360 Center Road in Quilcene.

port townsend This walkable waterfront town is rich with history, art and plenty of Victorian beauty. Port Townsend, at the eastern end of the North Olympic Peninsula on state Highway 20, takes pride in being the area’s cultural hub. It is the seat of Jefferson County, which had a population of about 30,000 in 2012. Artists representing all disciplines seem to gravitate to the town of 9,100 that relishes its eclectic personality. You can find venues for dance, drama/theater, film/movies, literary and visual arts and music in Port Townsend. Established in 1851, Port Townsend’s character today comes from its boom in the 1880s and 1890s as a major seaport, fishing and lumber area. Town leaders and merchants built ornate and spacious Victorian homes and fine brick or stone buildings for their businesses downtown based on the promise of a railroad line — but the railroad never came. Port Townsend quietly folded back into itself for decades, never losing its Victorian character. It was rediscovered decades later as a retirement mecca, and in 1976 the downtown waterfront and bluff above it were designated as a National Historic District. Port Townsend is one of only three Victorian seaports on the National Register of Historic Places in the U.S. and the only one on the West Coast. As a nod to its heritage, the city hosts the Victorian Heritage Festival every March with tours of its “painted ladies” among the activities.

BEAUTIFUL AND INSPIRING

Walkable Port Townsend Settled in 1851, Port Townsend’s heyday as a late-Victorian seaport brought wealth and style to the community as upwardly mobile captains and merchants built fine homes for themselves. A leisurely drive around the “uptown” area overlooking Admiralty Inlet reveals about 30 homes built between 1860 and 1900, restored to their late 19th century glory in a variety of styles, including classic Victorian and Victorian Gothic, Italianate, Italianate Villa and Italianate Renaissance, Queen Anne and Georgian. Most are private residences and not open to the public. Every March, Port Townsend pays homage to its background with the Victorian Heritage Festival, which includes tours. For more information, see victorianfestival.org. Several homes have been converted into bed and breakfasts, and one, the D.C.H. Rothschild house, built in 1868, is part of the state parks system and managed by the Jefferson County Historical Society. It is furnished in period pieces and is open Monday to Saturday 11 a.m.-4 p.m. and Sunday 1-4 p.m. May through September. The house museum is at the corner of Jefferson and Taylor streets. Port Townsend boomed in the 1880s and 1890s with the promise of a railroad. So many of the homes reflect the style of the waning Victorian Age with massive construction and elaborate ornamentation. Tasteful plaques and signs give a mini-history lesson with the original owners’ names and dates built. The state’s oldest Methodist church, from 1871, has a museum open to the public, and the Episcopal church, built in 1860, remains a place of worship today. But the most magnificent Port Townsend structure overseeing the entire city is the classically Victorian Jefferson County Courthouse, built in 1892 of red brick with its 124-foot clock tower. The county’s business still is conducted in the building, a National Historic Landmark and one of the two oldest courthouses in the state. In 1976, Port Townsend was designated a National Historic District and is one of only three remaining Victorian seaports in the country. After 15 years with an active Main Street program, Port

Townsend was honored in 2000 with the Great American Main Street award from the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

PORT TOWNSEND AEROSPACE MUSEUM If antique airplane aficionados are anything like their car-worshiping counterparts, they’ll hit every museum within a hundred miles. One not to miss 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. At any given time, a half-dozen are being hand-restored by youth apprentices in the building’s shop, mentored by skilled volunteer craftsmen.

The 18,000-square-foot museum is the dream-come-true of Jerry Thuotte, a former commercial pilot for three decades, and his wife, Peggy, also a licensed pilot. The couple founded the museum in 2001 as a program to teach youths craftsmanship and life skills. The Thuottes, their crew and volunteers celebrated its grand opening in 2008. The museum is open from 9 a.m.4 p.m. Wednesday-Sunday; admission is $10 for adults, $6 for youth 7-12. Most of the planes fly at least once every two weeks. Stay long enough and you might seen some in flight. For more information, phone 360-4370863 or visit ptaeromuseum.com.

Many residents and visitors, on their way to the Point Wilson Lighthouse or campgrounds in Fort Worden State Park, take little notice of two buildings that make up the Port Townsend Marine Science Center. Those whose curiosity gets the better of them, however, 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. The center’s exhibits are in collaboration with the Burke Museum-Seattle and Washington State Parks. wSeveral 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. Among the colorful sea creatures on exhibit — in touch tanks or closed aquariums — are sea anemones, orange-lipped scallops, burrowing cucumbers, sea squirts and sea urchins, serrated-edge rockfish, pinto abalone, rock scallops and decorator crabs. Have you ever seen the tide have an ebb-and-flow cycle of 14 minutes? You can see it happen with the push of a button in the intertidal tank. The natural history exhibit focuses

on the area’s geology — beach rocks, an interactive Washington geo-puzzle, fossils of mammals and invertebrates millions of years old, including a million-year-old sockeye salmon, and the 12-foot model of a bluff with its distinct layers of sedimentary materials. There’s now a new exhibit on orcas in the natural history exhibit, “Learning from Orcas — the Story of Hope,” a fully articulated orca skeleton. Every day that the buildings are open, there are interpretive programs at 2:30 p.m. During the summer, marine science programs are Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays; natural history programs are Wednesdays and Sundays. Guided beach walks along Admiralty Inlet are offered Fridays at the same time. The Port Townsend Marine Science Center also embraces the “marine” in its name with wildlife cruises on the yacht Glacier Spirit and sailing trips on the schooner Adventuress around Protection Island National Wildlife Refuge at the mouth of Discovery Bay. For dates and prices, see the website at ptmsc.org or phone the center at 360-385-5582.

Northwest Maritime Center

MARITIME HISTORY

A star on the sea Port Townsend celebrates its maritime past and future with the Northwest Maritime Center at Point Hudson at the town’s northeast end. The Northwest Maritime Center is a nonprofit organization backed by an impressive cross-section of citizens, nonprofit groups and government agencies. The concept of a public center preserving and celebrating Port Townsend’s rich maritime history began 15 years ago and quickly expanded to include the entire Puget Sound region. As one of only three Victorian seaports in the nation and with some 8,000 vessels sailing past it annually into Puget Sound, Port Townsend welcomed the opportunity to focus on its maritime history and culture, provide maritime experiences for novices to experts and educate the public on the maritime heritage and economics of

24

Puget Sound and the importance of marine trades to the region. The Northwest Maritime Center collaborated with the Wooden Boat Foundation, the Alliance for Northwest Maritime Education, marine trades and marine recreational businesses and the city of Port Townsend on the project. The complex, located in the core of Port Townsend’s National Landmark Historic District, includes the: n Maritime Heritage and Resources Building — 15,840 square feet — with a boat livery, chandlery, information desk, exhibition space, resource library, meeting rooms and offices. n Maritime Education Building — 9,520 square feet — with a craft demonstration area, wood shop, the Learning Lab for hands-on learning, classrooms and a pilothouse tower. n Outdoors public commons area — more than 40,000 square feet — with a beach boardwalk, small-boat staging platform and ADA-accessible, handlaunch boat ramp. n Renovated 289-foot-long, deep-water pier with floats and mooring buoys. The chandlery or store stocks marine supplies, fine hand tools and an extensive collection of maritime books, artwork, publications and gift items. Facing the water, the large livery stores dozens of small rental vessels with easy access to a floating dock in Point Hudson Marina. On the building’s second floor, there

NORTH OLYMPIC PENINSULA GUIDE

F

SPRING SUMMER 2014

are offices for the center’s maritime partners plus a library of hard-to-find maritime reference materials. A meeting and conference area above the livery offers panoramic vistas of downtown, Port Townsend Bay, Admiralty Inlet and the Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges. The space accommodates up to 185 people and with a full-service catering kitchen. Programs at the Maritime Education Building highlight maritime artisans and craft demonstrations featuring sail making, leather and rope work, and hand-tooled, small-craft boatbuilding and maintenance. The Wooden Boat Foundation operates a hands-on learning laboratory for students with a wide array of courses and activities related to nautical science and maritime history. A mezzanine, running the full length of the building, provides a great vantage point to observe the Learning Lab activities and a hoist system anchored there raises small boats and materials to second-floor classrooms. In the building’s east-end tower, there’s a glass-encased pilothouse where students can employ traditional and modern navigational tools and techniques to track vessels in Admiralty Inlet. Both buildings have wrap-around, interconnecting upper level decks. The public commons area is bound to be a popular site for concerts and craft shows. A boardwalk links a city park, the center’s dock and the Point Hudson jetty. Hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. MondayFriday; open Saturdays beginning May 1 through the Wooden Boat Festival in September.

LOCAL HISTORY

Fun at the forts If you want 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.

drive as it is surrounded by Puget Sound. Getting there: From the Hood Canal Bridge, head west for 5 miles on Highway 104 to the well-marked junction with Highway 19 (Beaver Valley Road) and turn right. Travel 10 miles to the Chimacum four-way stop. Continue straight through Chimacum and turn right at the sign for FORT FLAGLER STATE PARK Indian Island and Highway 116. Go Fort Flagler State Park on the tip of straight at the four-way stop in Port Marrowstone Island is more out of the Hadlock and follow Highway 116 for way, but definitely worth the scenic about 10 miles to the park’s entrance.

Fort Flagler State Park has about 785 acres on a high bluff with vistas of Puget Sound and the Cascade Mountains. It has 12.5 miles of roads, five miles of hiking/biking trails and more than 3.5 miles of generous sandy shoreline. For the intrepid, there’s swimming and waterskiing as well as saltwater fishing in the brisk water or from the shore. Mammals, birds, fish and sea life enjoy all the island has to offer, too, and it’s a photographer’s paradise. >> FORTS CONTINUED ON PAGE 30

Fort Worden << FORTS CONTINUED FROM PAGE 25

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. Since this area is on a bluff above the water and is canopied with trees, it is not suitable for large RVs. Fiftyfour sites are in the lower park area and have easy access to the water. Maximum site length is 50 feet (may have limited availability). To reserve a campsite, call 888-CAMPOUT or 888-226-7688. The park is peppered with 19 sheltered and 40 unsheltered picnic tables, most of which are beachside. There are two boat ramps and 256 feet of moorage. 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 calling the park office at 360-385-3701. Visitors also can explore the military museum with its interactive, interpretative display. It’s open daily from June 1-Sept. 1 and maintains weekend hours from October through May. FORT TOWNSEND STATE PARK

Getting there: From the Hood Ca-

nal Bridge, head west for five miles on Highway 104 to the well-marked junction with Highway 19 (Beaver Valley Road) and turn right. Stay on Highway 19 to its junction with Highway 20 and take Highway 20 north toward Port Townsend. Turn right at the sign for the park. Although the Strait of Juan de Fuca and its inland bays had been explored and named by British Capt. 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, like its namesake, faded into Jefferson County history for decades. None of the original buildings remains but a history loop has descriptive signage on the site of each of the fort’s buildings. Douglas firs planted by the soldiers more than 150 years ago stand as sentinels along the path. 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. The park covers about one-third of the original fort. There are 6.5 miles of forested hiking trails, including a self-guided nature trail and one highlighting the park’s fort history. The amenities include 40 campsites, a dump station, two restrooms, a shower, 43 picnic tables and three picnic shelters, ball fields and a children’s play area. The nearest boat launch ramps are at Port Townsend, Fort Flagler and Port Hadlock. Compared with its cousins, Old Fort Townsend State Park offers a more serene and solitary experience, all the better to revel in its flora and fauna. The park is open year-round for day use; camping is permitted from March 28-Oct. 15 and is on a first-come, firstserved basis. FORT WORDEN STATE PARK AND CONFERENCE CENTER

Getting there: From the Hood Canal Bridge, head west for 5 miles on Highway 104 to the well-marked junction with Highway 19 (Beaver Valley Road) and turn right.

Keep going straight for about 1.5 miles until you reach the >> FORTS CONTINUED ON PAGE 31

park entrance: The street changes names several times. There is a visitors center on Fort Worden Way within the park. Fort Worden State Park and Conference Center draws visitors from 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 for Olympic Peninsula residents 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, ranging from one-bedroom to six-bedroom units with living rooms, dining rooms and kitchens, may be reserved by calling 360-3444434 or going online to parks.wa.gov/ fortworden/accommodations. The park has 12 miles of hiking/biking trails and five miles of trails that are ADA 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 — call 360-344-4431 for individual campsite reservations. Along the beachside road are the Port Townsend Marine Science Center with is marine touch tanks, the Natural History Museum, a concession stand with restrooms and the Point Wilson Lighthouse. One of the park’s crown jewels is the Puget Sound Coast Artillery Museum housed in Building 201 which chronicles the fort’s 55-year military history and offers tours of the fort’s gun batteries on Artillery Hill. Housing is available for rent yearround and camping is permitted all year at the park.

FLAVORS OF THE NORTH OLYMPIC PENINSULA The abundance of fresh fish and seafood from the Pacific Ocean and the area’s many rivers are a delicious delight on the North Olympic Peninsula. Locally caught fish such as salmon and halibut are staples on many menus. Be sure to ask your waiter about the “catch of the day,” which is caught the same day it is served. Cedar- or aldersmoked salmon are a special treat at restaurants across the region. Seafood and shellfish also are plentiful across the Peninsula. Mussels, oysters, razor and butter clams, shrimp and highly sought-after geoducks are seasonal staples of many menus. The quaint town of Brinnon lures

This weekend-long celebration celebrates shrimp and other local seafood with plenty of opportunities to sample fresh-off-the boat dishes. 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 and Seafood Festival is held in Port Angeles each October. The crab receives its name from the community of Dungeness.

The North Olympic Peninsula is home to several wineries, cideries and breweries that have made names for themselves. All are family owned and operated, and each has unique personality and character. Most of the Peninsula’s wineries are small and produce fewer than 2,000 cases a year. Throughout the year, many host popular events that pair the wines with chocolate, cheese and other delectable treats. If you can’t make it to the individual wineries, cideries and breweries for samples, local wine sellers and restaurants carry many of the Peninsula labels. And don’t forget the coffee. Northwesterners love a warm cup of joe and you will find coffee shops and drive-up stands scattered across the Peninsula. >> FLAVORS CONTINUED ON PAGE 36

For a small region, the North Olympic Peninsula offers an amazing array of foods, and a high standard of both cooking and presentation. Some of the Peninsula’s specialty dishes highlight the region’s plentiful seafood. The Olympic Peninsula also 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. The entire Peninsula is known for its blackberries, that grow along roadsides,

in backyards and pretty much everywhere else. Blackberries take center stage at the Joyce Daze Blackberry Festival, held the first Saturday in August in the town of Joyce. For more festival information, turn to Page 133. Farmers markets are offered throughout the year on the North Olympic Peninsula. But in the spring, summer and early fall, community markets burst at the seams with garden-fresh goodies. The North Olympic Peninsula is home to a number of family-owned and operated farms, organic farms and farm stores. >> FLAVORS CONTINUED ON PAGE 37

It is located off 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.

Nearly two dozen parks dot the landscape of Port Townsend. The showpiece is Chetzemoka Park, located at Jackson and Blaine streets. Named in honor of the Klallam chief Chetzemoka, friend of the pioneers, the 5.1-acre park overlooks Admiralty Inlet. The city-owned gem is located on the water, and has a stunning view of the Cascade Mountains and Whidbey Island on clear days. The park features flower gardens, picnic areas, play equipment and a bandstand as well as easy access to the beach and tidelands.


Walk, run or bike The Larry Scott Memorial Trail is a hard-pack gravel trail that starts in Port Townsend and travels approximately six miles toward Four Corners. It is open for nonmotorized modes of transportation and recreational purposes, including walking, bicycling and horseback riding. Access is from the Port Townsend Boat Haven off Haines Places. It is a segment of the Olympic Discovery Trail, a trail that will ultimately traverse approximately 130 miles across the North Olympic Peninsula. The trail is a great place to see breathtaking views that are not accessible by car.

Hidden gems under the sand The best oyster beaches are along Hood Canal. Quilcene Bay on Hood Canal is known for producing some of the Northwest’s most delicious oysters. To the south in Brinnon, oyster-gathering opportunities are also said to be excellent. Seafood fans know that beneath the pebbles and sand of the shore along day-use Wolfe Property State Park, about a half-mile north of the Hood Canal Bridge, are mussels, steamer clams, geoducks and rock clams. Most beaches will have rules and identification guides clearly posted along with emergency rule changes. Check wdfw.wa.gov for regulations.

Legend The North Olympic Peninsula is home to several award-winning wineries and cideries. Explore hidden backroads and see spectacular countryside as you visit the different locations and taste wines and hard ciders as distinctive as their locations. Many of the wineries use grapes from Eastern Washington, although some grow their own cool-climate

grapes or use berries and fruit from local farms. Often you’ll find the winemakers themselves pouring in the tasting rooms and greeting visitors. A handful of the wineries banded together to form the Olympic Peninsula Wineries Association (800-7855495, olympicpeninsulawineries.org). The website provides a suggested tour map and directions.

BREATHTAKING SCENERY

Tri-Area and Port Ludlow The crossroads of Port Hadlock, Chimacum and Irondale comprise the Tri-Area of Jefferson County. They serve as the gateway to Marrowstone Island. Located at the northern tip of the island is Fort Flagler State Park. The historical turn-of-the-century Army base features barracks, officers’ quarters and a hospital that were used

in World War I and World War II. A favorite features that can be toured: the nine former gun batteries atop the bluff. 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 very road. Stop by the Chimacum Corner Farmstand (9122 Rhody Drive, 360732-0107, 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, digs 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. COUNTRY DRIVES Driving through the Dungeness Valley brings the diverse agricultural history of the area into focus. Old Olympic Highway offers a pretty, quiet country drive for those who want to escapwe U.S. Highway 101. It is accessible from Highway 101 as well as many Sequim streets. The road meanders past farms and eventually hooks up with Marine Drive, which gives you breathtaking views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Dungeness Spit and Cline Spit.

Many people enjoy wading for crabs at low tide at Dungeness Bay and Pillar Point out in Clallam Bay, while others go for the use of crab pots and ring traps.

sequim The bluest skies in Washington are in the blue hole of Sequim. Sequim, pronounced “Skwim,” is a growing community of about 6,700 in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley. The valley is bounded by Jefferson County on the east, the Strait of Juan de Fuca on the north, Port Angeles on the west and the Olympic National Forest on the south. 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 town and valley gladly have adopted the moniker of “Sunny Sequim” as they are blessed by an average of 300 days of sunshine. Sequim also is known as the “Lavender Capital of North America” and draws crowds of 30,000 to its Lavender Weekend in July. Approximately two hours from Seattle, Tacoma and Olympia, the Dungeness Valley is home to some 27,000 residents, many of whom retired to the area from throughout the nation.

Shops in downtown Sequim

DAY-TRIPPING IN VIBRANT DOWNTOWN SEQUIM Downtown Sequim definitely 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 which 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 non-metered 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 a dozen coffeehouses/bistros downtown or sample Washington and/or international wines at a trio of wine sellers. An organic grocery downtown stocks and sells locally produced meat, dairy and produce. Another shop offers custom culinary blends of spices plus a rainbow of flavored teas. Several stores carry Northwest arts and crafts, handcrafted personal care products, gift items, jewelry and home decor. Two hardware stores and two thrift shops round out the shopping district. How many small towns have not one but multiple art galleries? The city attracts new residents from throughout

the nation and that’s reflected in its celebration of all manner of art. In addition to two private galleries featuring an array of works by their member artists, Sequim’s nonprofit museum and arts center holds exhibits open to amateurs and professionals. Downtown businesses and artists joined forces several years ago to make art available to all with the 5-8 p.m. First Friday Art Walk. The free self-guided walking tour begins with a 5:30 p.m. artists’ reception, with snacks and wine, at the art co-operative and includes more than a dozen venues highlighting more area artists. Maps are available at participating businesses. It’s a great time to mingle, nosh and appreciate all the art downtown Sequim has to offer. Another downtown draw is the Sequim Farmers Market, every Saturday from May to October. While construction of the new Sequim City Hall is underway, the market will be held at Centennial Place, which is in the heart of Sequim. Centennial Place is located on the northeast corner of the intersection of Sequim Avenue and Washington Street. The Sequim Farmers Market features vendors selling locally caught fish and homegrown meats, fruits, vegetables, honey and crafts as musicians play lively tunes. Something special to note about market artisans is that everything for sale is made by the person selling it and they welcome questions about their goods. Each artisan is juried in by a market committee to assure that every item is a quality hand-made piece. The market is like a street fair with booths featuring woodworking pieces, jewelry, lavender products, paintings and photographs, fiber arts, bakery items, pottery, clothing and much more.

After a long trip to the North Olympic Peninsula, owners and their canine companions will yearn to stretch their legs, and the Sequim Dog Park is a perfect place to enjoy the fresh air in a safe environment. The Sequim Dog Park is a community park that is over one acre in size on the east side of Carrie Blake Park, two blocks north on Blake Avenue from Washington Street. The park encourages people to bring their dogs for exercise and offleash doggie play. There is a fenced area for large dogs and one for small dogs. The park is well-groomed and clean, and its users are self-policing and friendly. Restrooms, doggie clean-up bags and benches are available for visitors’ use. Park rules are posted onsite and online at sequimdogparks. org. Also on the website, see dogfriendly lodging available in Sequim. A portion of the Olympic Discovery Trail runs by Carrie Blake Park, and there also is a walking trail for dogs and their people around the park. Hours for both parks are from dawn until dusk.

SEQUIM LAVENDER WEEKEND EVENT

Sequim Lavender Festival The Sequim Lavender Festival celebrates its 18th year in the heart of Sequim and in the surrounding Dungeness Valley during Sequim Lavender Weekend — July 18-20. Sequim Lavender Weekend is a twopart festival. Another lavender group simultaneously puts on the Sequim Lavender Farm Tour & Fair. (See story on Page 57.) Solely produced and managed by the Sequim Lavender Growers Association, the Sequim Lavender Festival includes activities and regional attractions for people of all ages. The lavender growers responsible for the success and heritage of this 18th annual festival will be showcased and available throughout the weekend when festival attendees take the selfguided and free “U-Tour.” Six farms and a commercial nursery make up the free farm tour. Festival-goers can leisurely drive at their own pace with the aid of a free farm tour map and visit the lavender farms located in Sequim — the “Lavender Capital of North America.” Lavender-themed gifts and fresh-cut bouquets will be available for purchase. As always, admission, advice and fragrance at the farms and nursery are free of charge. Don’t be camera shy. Lavender is the most distinctive back drop for any scenic or family photograph.

Lavender field Additional regional attractions will be highlighted on the map. The community-spirited Lavender Festival Street Fair will occur on Fir Street in downtown Sequim. Admission to the street fair is free. Visitors will be surrounded by three days of continuous musical entertainment, known as “Lavenderstock,” and greeted with the fragrance of Sequim lavender. A food court and beer and wine garden will feature a Northwest menu of crab and salmon cakes, coffee, at least six flavors of lavender ice cream and local bakery-prepared desserts, along with regional wine and beer and lavender-flavored wine, martinis and margaritas. In addition, barbecue, Thai, Greek and hot dog selections will be available for purchase. A new street fair attraction this year, is “Festival Fun for Kids,” sponsored by

the Boys & Girls Club in Sequim. The new event will feature activities for children 12 and younger Saturday, July 19, and Sunday, July 20.

HISTORIC LANDMARK

Dungeness Schoolhouse The 1892-built Dungeness Schoolhouse, 2781 Towne Road, was a public school until 1955. The two-story landmark is now owned and operated by the Museum and Arts Center in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley, which also operates the MAC Exhibit Center (175 W. Cedar St., macsequim.org) The MAC Exhibit Center features monthly changing art exhibits and rotating local history exhibits. Read more about the MAC Center on Page 69.

BIRDWATCHING ON THE NORTH OLYMPIC PENINSULA Because the Peninsula is located in a prime migratory path for many birds with differing migratory patterns, there is always a season for a different type of bird. In the spring and summer, songbirds are in higher numbers, while the summer has shorebirds and gulls migrating through. Mid-fall, songbirds and shorebirds make their way into the area, and then in the winter, you have waterfowl. What local birders have known for so long is that because of the location and the diversity of habi-

tats, the North Olympic Peninsula is one of the best places in Washington to go birding. Free guided bird walks are conducted each Wednesday at 8:30 a.m. at the Dungeness River Audubon Center, located at 2151 W. Hendrickson Road at Railroad Bridge Park in Sequim. The two-hour walks leave from the Audubon Center and cover 1½ miles on the Olympic Discovery Trail. The free guided bird walks are held every Wednesday, rain or shine.

Birding locations Railroad Bridge Park: Flickers, kinglets, finches, nuthatches, towhees and shrike, and the American dipper in the river. John Wayne Marina and Sequim Bay State Park: A variety of shore, sea birds and winter waterfowl. Gardiner Beach: Varied diving ducks, loons and grebes, while an adjoining brackish pond has many waterfowl, including hooded mergansers. Port Angeles waterfront and Ediz Hook: Large numbers of shorebirds, sea ducks, brants, gulls and raptors. Protection Island National Wildlife Refuge: A major rookery for Glaucouswinged gulls, black oyster catchers and cormorants. The Port Townsend Marine Science Center: Offers wildlife cruises to Protection Island in the spring and fall. North/West Coast: Dozens of bird species migrate along the coast, including trumpeter swans, falcons, sand cranes and bald eagles. Cape Flattery at the northwest tip provides habitat for birds, and sometimes you can spot eagles perched in the trees along state Highway 112.

SEQUIM IS FOR KIDS

Berry field

Noted as one of the best places in the country to retire, Sequim also provides much for visitors with children: playgrounds, a skate park, animals, old bones, music and enough activities to settle even the most tireless in bed peacefully come nightfall. Olympic Game Farm offers a chance to meet animals up close on drive-through or walking tours. Animals represent a great variety of species and many are retired film “actors.” Olympic Game Farm: (1423 Ward Road; 360-683-4295 or 8007784205; olygamefarm.com. Open nearly every day; fee for tours.) Fishing also is available at the on Ward Road at Jubilee Farm’s trout pond. On the other side of town, Carrie Blake Park (on Blake Avenue near the QFC shopping center) is a family playground, with woodsy groves, trails, an off-leash dog park and duck ponds. Colorful playground equipment appeals to the younger set. Next door to the south, the Sequim Skateboard Park offers challenges and thrills for older children and two ball fields offer space for a game. Just north of Carrie Blake Park, the Water Reuse Demonstration Park has walking and biking trails, exercise stations and a pond for radio-controlled boats where children younger than 14 also can fish. >> KIDS CONTINUED ON PAGE 65

beginning the walk back. (Best walking is at low tide. It’s wise to pack water, snacks and jackets and allow half a day for this 11-mile round-trip hike.) The Olympic Discovery Trail features great hiking, jogging and bicycling through scenic areas. (Bicycles available for rental at All Around Bikes, near the trail at 150 West Sequim Bay Road; 360-681-3868.) Sequim is home to protected waters perfect for boating and kayaking. A great family day-trip is a kayak tour of the Dungeness Spit, with a stop at the Dungeness Lighthouse. Tours and rentals can be booked through Dungeness Kayaking (360681-4190) or Adventures Through Kayaking (360-417-3015). The Sequim Aquatic Recreation Center at 610 N. Fifth Ave. offers swimming (including a children’s pool, rope jump and a water slide), basketball, volleyball and racquetball. Call ahead to check best pool times. (360683-3344.) As family energy winds down, quieter fun is available at the area’s many U-pick berry farms (June-October) and at the weekly farmers market held on Saturdays (May-October) in downtown Sequim. The market offers local crafts, produce, snacks galore and music. Throughout the spring and summer, watch the Sequim Gazette and Peninsula Daily News for other festivals and events, as well as pancake breakfasts, ice cream socials and spaghetti or salmon dinners.

Many of its animals are veterans of television and movies. Olympic Game Farm has been entertaining families for four decades.

The driving tour leaves visitors with vivid memories of these amazing creatures. There are friendly llamas that eat bread from your hand, performing bears, grazing elk and buffalo. You also will see many animals that are on the endangered species list, such as timber wolves, Bengal tigers and African lions. In addition to endangered species,

the farm is home to coyotes, bobcats, cougars and many more species. Driving tours are open year-round from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day.

PROCEED WITH CAUTION

Elk crossing ahead Be on the lookout for Sequim’s famous Roosevelt elk herd as you enter town from the east. Elk crossing signal lights on U.S. Highway 101 are triggered by herd members wearing transmitting radio collars, and from time to time, they do cross the road en masse, halting traffic. Roosevelt elk are native to the North Olympic Peninsula, with bulls weighing up to 1,100 pounds and cows in the 600-pound range. One herd, composed of about 100 animals, considers the Sequim area part of its range.

MEDICAL

SERVICES

When not in the forest, they graze in farm fields and on lawns. Although the Sequim elk appear to be tame, they are not. Normally, they avoid close contact with people and move away when approached. They may show signs of agitation if people get too close, throw things or when people or cars block what the elk consider to be an escape route. Caution should be used at all times when viewing the herd. Favorite spots for elk viewing seem to be along Happy Valley Road, West Sequim Bay Road and Port Williams Road. Herds of elk can also be found on the West End and North/West Coast of the North Olympic Peninsula.

HANDS ON LEARNING

Dungeness River Audubon Center

Why does a Stellar jay’s feather look blue when there is no blue pigment in it? Why does the murre’s egg have that odd shape? How do you tell a lynx from a bobcat? All kinds of answers — and a wonderful place to ramble — are found at Railroad Bridge Park. With its stunning displays, hands-on exhibits and knowledgeable staff, the Dungeness River Audubon Center is a must-see, a focal point for study and education concerning the Dungeness River Watershed and its environs. Families as well as natural science enthusiasts will find a warm welcome and plenty to intrigue in the collections at the center. The main room is lined with cases housing hundreds of examples of birds of the area, along with lynx, black bear, raccoons and mountain lion. (The late Claude Ritze and his wife Edna did much of the taxidermy.) Hands-on exhibits include drawers full of the fascinating and the curious: bones, feathers, eggs and teeth of species from songbird to mammoth. Stroke-able pelts of local fur-bearing animals are arranged in front of a “canyou-spot-it” mural of Olympic Peninsula wildlife painted by Sequim artist Tim Quinn. A binocular microscope invites visitors to view the intricate mysteries of natural objects. Other displays profile the “Life Story of a River” and the reference library includes a complete herbarium of local plants. The Audubon Center’s staff and docents are eager to show visitors the collection and answer questions. Children will enjoy going on a scavenger hunt through the 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. In any given week the center is sure to offer a special program. Birders, of course, will want to attend the Wednesday morning bird walks or the monthly Audubon Society meetings. In certain seasons, songbird walks and “owlprowls” are popular. Guides on these walks bring spotting scopes; the center also has “loaner” binoculars.

Dungeness River Audubon Center Since 2003, the local Audubon group has hosted the annual Olympic Peninsula BirdFest the first weekend in April, drawing bird enthusiasts and experts from across the nation. In alternate Septembers, the center sponsors a River Festival. Both events feature unusual field trips, expert presentations and a great deal of fun. History buffs will enjoy the park’s namesake railroad bridge. The Howe through-truss bridge served the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railway line from 1915 until the mid-1980s. Now transformed by board planking, the bridge is accessible by ramp as well as by stairs. During vacation season, summer river talks cover specific subjects, from bats to birds to bugs, with a butterfly walk scheduled to coincide with July’s Lavender Weekend. Throughout the year, the Dungeness River Audubon Center sponsors workshops and presentations. Among the topics are global warming, volcanoes/earthquakes and the Conservation Service snowpack monitor system. The wealth of programs offered by the center is a collaborative effort built over the years by several groups. The Jamestown S’Klallam tribe has taken a lead in monitoring and restoring habitat in the area and is a key sponsor of the River Center Foundation, along with former members of the Sequim Natural History Museum. The other two sponsors are the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society and the National Audubon Society (through Audubon Washington).

Carrie Blake Park OUT AND ABOUT

Outdoor recreation

the park has toe-dipping access to the Dungeness River, which can be calm or churning, but is relentlessly cold. The refurbished 1900s railroad bridge is part of the Olympic Discovery Trail that runs through the park. It’s wheelchair and bicycle-friendly with wide access ramps, and is a favorite of leashed pets and their people. On the bridge, there are benches and lookout nooks to watch the river. The park has several picnic tables, an outdoor stage and numerous side trails through the foliage. Bigleaf maples and several varieties of evergreens provide a forest feel. The park is open from dawn to dusk and no pass is required. The Dungeness River Audubon Center within the park features many examples of birds and other

KSQM

native animals and serves as an educational center. Even if you’re just visiting, you’re invited to join the bird walks at 8:30 a.m. every Wednesday, rain or shine, led by a center birding expert. The center is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and noon to 4 p.m. Saturday. 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: n Cline Spit on Marine Drive n Diamond Point on the northeast Miller Peninsula n Dungeness Landing on Marine Drive near Oyster House Road

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. Have a family reunion or gettogether with friends under the large shelter, and fire up the grills nearby. There are two playground areas with swings and climbing things. Older youths will enjoy the adjacent BMX track and skateboard park. The softball fields are first-come, first-served. Stroll around the ponds or sit a spell and watch several breeds of ducks feed and preen. At 3 p.m. on the third Sundays from May-September, the Sequim City Band plays rousing music in free outdoor concerts at the James Center for the Performing Arts, also on the north side of the park. 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 Hendrickson Road, north and west of Walmart off Priest Road,

BOATER’S PARADISE

John Wayne Marina Located on Pitship Point in Sequim Bay (Longitude 123 02’ 18” W/ Latitude 48 03’ 43” N), John Wayne Marina is named for “The Duke,” but since opening in 1985, the marina has made a reputation for itself as a fullservice facility in a superb location. The marina offers both permanent and guest moorage, on a first-come, first-served basis, parking and a launch for smaller craft and boat rentals. Ashore, the John Wayne Marina includes a restaurant and restrooms, with showers and laundry for tenants, and even a public meeting room with kitchen. Film actor John Wayne loved sailing his Wild Goose in the area of Sequim Bay, which he considered a prime place for a marina. Wayne himself donated the land in 1975. Now owned and operated by the Port of Port Angeles, the marina is a popular stop, included as “Best of the West” by Sea magazine. Boaters can take advantage of a fuel dock open seven days a week and the marina offers electric and water hookups. Trash disposal, a sewage pump-out and waste oil disposal also are available. Award-winning chefs prepare lunch and dinner at the marina’s restaurant, The Dockside Grill. Along with fresh seafood and cedar-planked salmon, the restaurant serves steaks and poultry, salads,

John Wayne Marina sandwiches and appetizers, and has a full bar and great selection of wines. The marina and its beautiful park areas are popular walking and picnicking places for non-boaters. Dozens of species of waterfowl make for good birding, and the Olympic Discovery Trail runs nearby. Pets on leashes are welcome.

HELPFUL AND CARING

Sequim visitor center “We are the first stop for information sources for many different types of people who are visiting or relocating,” says Shelli Robb-Kahler, executive director of the Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber and Visitor Information Center. “We’re also a huge resource for locals, too. The chamber also is a contact source for the Irrigation Festival and Sequim Lavender Weekend.” The chamber staff and volunteers operate the Visitor Information Center (VIC) seven days a week with closures scheduled only for major family holidays. Approximately 90 percent of the chamber’s building is allocated to the operations of the VIC. While some visitors arrive at the VIC at some point during their stay in Sequim, many others may not be staying in Sequim but merely passing through to Port Angeles or Hurricane Ridge, heading to Forks to experience the Twilight phenomenon, the West End, heading toward Seattle or exploring this area during their stay elsewhere on the Peninsula. Others still are trying to decide where to stay, how long they should stay and what to do while they are here. And that’s where its staff and volunteers can help. In addition to providing staff support for telephone calls, travel plan-

ner mailing and e-mail responses, the chamber staff and volunteers provide information at the VIC to encourage visitors to: n Stay in Sequim. n Extend their stay in Sequim. n Return to Sequim for another visit. n Encourage friends and families to visit Sequim. n Change their plans and stay in Sequim. “We’re a clearinghouse for all types of information,” Robb-Kahler said. Some of the frequently asked questions/requests: n. What’s a good place to stay here in Sequim? n So what is there to do here in Sequim? n Do you have a good map of Sequim? My GPS has me lost, can you help? n We were passing through and wondered if it was worth stopping here in Sequim. n Looks like we need to spend more time here (or come back). What are our lodging options? Even before they arrive in Sequim, visitors are accessing the services of the Visitor Information Center via the chamber’s website at sequimchamber. com or the city’s website at visitsunnysequim.com by submitting email requests for information or the mailing of a Sequim travel planner. The toll-free 800 number affords interested parties the opportunity to call the chamber, speak to a staff

May 3rd to October 26th

Sequim Visitor and Information Center

Open 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. daily through Labor day member or volunteer and have specific questions answered or needs fulfilled. On their arrival in Sequim, visitors to the VIC are pleased to find: n A facility that is clean and inviting, visible and accessible. n Happy greeters who are trained and knowledgeable. n Resources and information: visitor guides, travel planners, rack cards. n Clean and stocked restrooms. n Access to the Internet. They’ll also find the Washington State Visitors Guide, maps and brochures of the entire Olympic Peninsula and information on Victoria, British Columbia. The VIC also has rack cards of many of its members. Visitors will find a Sequim restaurant guide especially useful. Chamber staff coordinates the scheduling of 65 volunteers who contribute nearly 6,000 hours each year and serve nearly 25,000 visitors annually. Visitors arrive from all 50 states and countries from around the world including Brazil, the Czech Republic, Ireland, Lithuania, Malaysia, Romania and Thailand, to name just a few.

The children’s book selection is worth a stop in itself. THE HOUSE OF MYTH CARVING SHED

Just down a flight of steps from Northwest Native Expressions is the center of operations for the artisans, headed by lead carver Dale Faulstich, who create totem poles and other artwork for the tribe. Visitors always are made to feel welcome at the carving shed. The carvers will answer questions and tell some of the history of the poles and photographs are encouraged. (Usually open to visitors weekdays 8 a.m.-5 p.m.) The carving shed is a great place to start a walking tour of the tribe’s totem poles. LONGHOUSE MARKET & DELI

7 Cedars Casino LOCAL HISTORY

Jamestown S’Klallam tribe With its headquarters just east of Sequim at Blyn, the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe supports Peninsula residents through business enterprises, health care centers and leadership in natural resources conservation. The campus of the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe also is one of the area’s most rewarding stops for visitors, with entertainment, great food and a glimpse into Northwest Native American culture. THE JAMESTOWN S’KLALLAM TRIBE

Resisting pressure to move from their traditional lands to a reservation at Skokomish, several Klallam communities under the leadership of Lord James Balch pooled their resources and in 1874 purchased 210 acres of land north of Sequim at a place they named Jamestown Beach. This group, the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe, remained organized and involved in the local economy. In 1981, the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe achieved federal recognition. Purchasing more land in a central location on U.S. Highway 101, the tribe established its governing offices. Services at the Blyn campuses include health and dental care, a tribal

TRIBES WELCOME VISITORS Native Americans have lived on the Olympic Peninsula for 4,000 to 12,000 years and continue to be a strong part of the North Olympic Peninsula’s fabric, culturally and economically. Today, the tribes are active in providing social services for their members by building health clinics, enterprises and entertainment venues such as casinos. You are welcome on all Olympic Peninsula reservations.

JAMESTOWN S’KLALLAM TRIBE

On the southern end of Sequim Bay between Port Townsend and Sequim at Blyn, are tribal headquarters for the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe. The public art here is spectacular with authentic totems in front of the tribal center and artwork on most of the public buildings, at the visitors’ center and on highway signs. Northwest Native Expressions Art Gallery has two locations, one inside the casino and one showcasing fine art near the tribal center.

Point Wilson Lighthouse

IN LOVE WITH LIGHTHOUSES Preserving and cherishing the North Olympic Peninsula’s maritime heritage also extends to its lighthouses. In 1850, Congress authorized 16 lighthouses along the Pacific coast and Strait of Juan de Fuca as shipping and passenger traffic surged with settlement of the Northwest. Clallam County, established in 1854, has a lighthouse heritage going back to 1857 when Congress appropriated about $40,000 to build the Cape Flattery (Tatoosh Island) and New Dungeness lighthouses, both of which are functional as automated navigational aids today. Others, such as Slip Point Lighthouse at Clallam Bay and Ediz Hook exist only in historical records. The

lighthouses of Jefferson County (1852) — Point Wilson (1879), Destruction Island (1891) and Marrowstone Point (1912) — came considerably later and all three remain active, but with automated equipment. The Point Wilson Lighthouse and tower are open to visitors from May to September on Saturdays between 1 p.m.-4 p.m. For information, call 360-385-5520. The lighthouse is owned by the Coast Guard and is managed by Fort Worden State Park and Conference Center. A Discovery Pass is required but the tour is free. Marrowstone Point Lighthouse at Fort Flagler is closed to the public. Destruction Island Lighthouse, three miles off the coast in western

Cape Flattery Lighthouse Jefferson County, is visible from U.S. Highway 101 at Ruby Beach, LaPush, and is closed to the public. The Cape Flattery Lighthouse on Tatoosh Island is the northwesternmost spot in the continental United States. The island is part of the Makah Reservation. The lighthouse marks the entrance to the Strait of Juan de Fuca, that wide and deep passage from the open Pacific Ocean to Puget Sound at Port Townsend. Tatoosh Island is not open to the public, but it and the lighthouse can be seen from high cliffs at the end of Cape Flattery Trail near Neah Bay.

Stroll through the cathedral-like canopy of green down to the turquoise waters of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. To the right, the lighthouse is a tiny blip on the horizon. The inner shore of the spit on Dungeness Bay is a wildlife refuge for

a variety of nesting birds and hiking is not permitted on the bay side so as not to disturb parents and their fledglings. More than 250 species of birds, 41 species of land mammals and eight species of marine mammals have been recorded in the refuge. It provides critical habitat for a number of species, some of them threatened or endangered, and is an important stop for many birds during migration. Upon reaching the lighthouse, the lush emerald lawn and the stunning white buildings trimmed crisply in green and red make the grounds seem almost otherworldly amid the wild natural surroundings. The New Dungeness Light Station, in service since 1857, is a gem of history and a perfect place for a picnic and a tour of the lighthouse and its museum before the hike back along the spit.

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 home to more than 250 species of birds, 41 species of land mammals and eight species of marine animals. The refuge is managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and covers 631 acres. 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, go to newdungenesslighthouse.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 world’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. If you’re not up for a strenuous hike, take your pet and stroll along the straitside bluffs of a 4 mile loop in the Dungeness Recreation Area for a

bird’s-eye view of the spit. Picnic tables and 66 camping sites are available. 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 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. At its highest point, the spit is about 15 feet above sea level and parts of it are under water during winter storms. >> REFUGE CONTINUES ON PAGE 87

Stones of all sizes and colors — black, white-striped, amber, green and black, gray, rust red — are strewn upon the dark sand. The pebbles are larger the closer one gets to the crest. Water-worn logs and root wads provide an infinite variety of shapes and angles to interest the eye. Upon reaching the lighthouse the bright, white cheeriness of the buildings make the grounds seem almost otherworldly amid the wild, near-desolate natural surroundings.

The New Dungeness Lighthouse, is a gem of history and a great place for a picnic before the hike back along the spit. Tour the museum in the former keeper’s quarters to learn about the history of the spit, the lighthouse and local Native American tribes — then climb the 74 spiraling steps to a million-dollar view.

SWEET TREATS ON HAND AT SEQUIM BERRY FARMS The U-pick berry farms of Sequim are travelers’ treasures, opportunities to stop, stretch and snack in the fresh air. A low-cost, low-tech activity for hosts and their visitors, especially children, berry picking creates memories of shared work and sweet rewards. For year-round residents, berry farms promise the midwinter riches of preserves, syrups and frozen whole berries. This summer the pickings are good around Sequim, with farms opening their U-pick stands throughout the season to offer a variety of berries. Most farms will provide containers or pre-weigh customers’ containers, but it’s always wise to bring light, flat containers that keep berries from stacking up and squishing. A sun hat, a long-sleeved shirt and a handy water bottle make picking in summer sun much more comfortable. The berry farms invite the public to phone ahead for further information or to request special picking times. Following are some of the local farms and their offerings: CAMERON BERRY FARM (STRAWBERRIES)

OLYMPIC DISCOVERY TRAIL

Motorized vehicles are forbidden today, but the Olympic Discovery Trail often is thought of as a rail trail. That’s because of its history. Most of it was built over the rights of way for several defunct railroads such as the Port Townsend and Southern; the Seattle, Port Angeles and Western; and the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific. Those were abandoned and their rails lifted by 1988, when the Peninsula Trails Coalition organized for the purpose of incorporating the old rail beds into a hiking/biking/equestrian trail. The Olympic Discovery Trail

Portions of the Olympic Discovery Trail are wheelchair accessible. For more information, visit the Accessible Trails website at americantrails.org.

between Port Angeles and Sequim now is open. Bikers and hikers are able to travel more than 30 miles of the Olympic Discovery Trail from Ediz Hook to Blyn and points east of Sequim Bay State Park, negotiating public roads for only a few short distances. Eventually, the Olympic Discovery Ttrail will extend about 125 miles from Port Townsend in the east to LaPush on the Pacific Ocean. The trail will be hard-surfaced, mostly flat and suitable for hiking, bicycling and — in many places — horseback riding.

Equestrians take note:

Horses are not permitted within city limits or on bridges. There is a bridge at Morse Creek, but the stream can be forded. The best part of the trail for horses between Sequim and Port Angeles begins west of the Dungeness River through Robin Hill Farm to Siebert Creek. For details, see the map at olympicdiscoverytrail.com.

salmon. There are several informative exhibits on the grounds, such as those on geology, the rain shadow effect and river management. At the east end of the bridge, travelers will find an unforgettable place to spend time — the Dungeness River Audubon Center with its many specimens of area birds and mammals. Ornithologists of every level will want to investigate the center’s special activities. As the Audubon Center website notes, “Knowing the sounds of birds opens up a new world of bird identification. This is a chance to tune your observational skills.” CARRIE BLAKE PARK

Olympic Discovery Trail << TRAIL CONTINUED FROM PAGE 99

In the Sequim-to-Port Angeles segment, distances between trail nodes — places where the Olympic Discovery Trail crosses public roads — often are short. Look for map handouts at these points. STOPS ON THE TRAIL

Someday, with 125 miles of the Olympic Discovery Trail open, books will be written about it. In view of the space available in this guide, however, this article will limit itself to a few enjoyable stops along the trail route between Port Angeles and Sequim.

ROBIN HILL FARM COUNTY PARK

Part of the county’s park system, Robin Hill Farm County Park, about halfway between Sequim and Port Angeles, is a recreational park and demonstration area of about 195 acres. The park contains 2.5 miles of equestrian trails and about 3.5 miles of foot trails. The terrain includes forest, meadow and wetland. Picnic areas and toilet facilities are available. (Pets must be leashed everywhere on the Olympic Discovery Trail). Trails within the farm usually are too soft for wheels; it’s best to lock up the bikes and walk. There are two road routes to the farm and they lead to parking lots: South side: Follow Old Olympic

Highway west of its intersection with Kitchen-Dick Road and turn left (south) on Vautier Road. Take the next right turn onto Pinnell Road and follow the signs to the Pinnell Road parking lot at Robin Hill Farm. North side: From U.S. Highway 101 just west of its union with KitchenDick Road, go north on Dryke Road one-quarter mile; turn right at the Robin Hill Farm gate. In addition to beautiful trails in dense forests, visitors will see farm animals and farming practices (e.g., fine pastures, agricultural research plots/gardens) managed by Washington State University’s Cooperative Extension personnel. This is a fine place to take children. It’s only a few miles, via the paved (chip-sealed or asphalt) Olympic Discovery Trail from the farm to the Dungeness River. RAILROAD BRIDGE PARK

There are restrooms every 2-3 miles along the way. Aircraft traffic may be visible at Sequim Valley Airport to the north. About one mile farther east, the Olympic Discovery Trail crosses Carlsborg Road. A few parking places are available here. Railroad Bridge, once part of the rail line, is now part of the trail. It is a magnificent structure, a challenge for photographers and a wonderful vantage point from which to view the river and, at times, scores of migrating

Turn north on Blake Avenue off Washington Street. Here, visitors will find picnic tables, a meeting hall, playground equipment, paved paths, ponds and lovely gardens. There’s also a very popular off-leash dog park — just follow your nose.

ON TO PORT TOWNSEND?

Well, not quite yet. But someday the entire 125-mile trip will be possible, via bicycle or by shoe leather. For the summer of 2014, however, visitors are asked to content themselves with the 30-mile portion of the Olympic Discovery Trail that lies between Ediz Hook on the Port Angeles waterfront and Blyn, east of Sequim. Extend your ride The 30-mile bicycle ride from Ediz Hook to east of Sequim can provide a perfect weekend trip for Canadian visitors who want to leave their autos at home. After debarking (the MV Coho permits bicycles on board) cyclists can enter the trail near the Red Lion Hotel on the waterfront, then bike to Sequim, see the sights, ride on to Sequim Bay State Park and camp for a night or two (don’t forget the camping gear). Alternatively, visitors can return to Sequim to stay at one of the hotels in town. It’s also fun to ride around bikefriendly downtown Sequim and shop for a while. For those who don’t wish to bike all the way back to Port Angeles, Clallam Transit is ready to help. Buses do not run on Sundays.


port angeles Peninsula’s largest city offers rich history, recreational opportunities and so much more. Port Angeles is the county seat of Clallam County and the largest city on the North Olympic Peninsula. It 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 Co-Operative 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.

Freshwater Bay TRANQUILITY AND WILDLIFE

Freshwater Bay offers it all

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 views of Vancouver Island and Mount Baker. Once on the secluded bay, it is common to come face to face with any number of marine mammals including harbor seals, orcas and river otters. The bay is also great for stand-up paddle boarding thanks to relatively shallow and calm waters. A 5-acre picnic area, naturally landscaped with Western red cedar and ferns, 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 go west on state Highway 112, then travel 3 miles north on Freshwater Bay Road.

Port Angeles Fine Arts Center (1203 E. Lauridsen Blvd., 360417-4590, pafac.org) devotes 1,300 square feet to visual arts exhibitions. A popular attraction of the Fine Arts Center is Webster’s Woods, an outdoor art garden spread across the woods surrounding the gallery. The center is open Thursday to Sunday. Webster’s Woods is open daily from dawn to dusk year-round. Admission is free, although donations are accepted. City Pier, at the foot of Lincoln Street, features an observation tower, promenade deck, picnic area and short-term moorage for small boats. A stroll along the adjacent Hollywood Beach or Waterfront Trail might be the ticket to end your day. The pier area also includes the Feiro Marine Life Center, a marine laboratory open to the public. A visit to Port Angeles would not be complete without a stroll along the city’s new esplanade, a $3.9 million effort finished last October. The esplanade features a split-level, concrete platform with benches looking out from behind glass wind shields over Port Angeles Harbor. Photographs of various natural scenes on the North Olympic Peninsula, taken by a Port-Angeles based photographer, were enlarged and sandwiched between two pieces of glass to form the wind shields. The lower level of the esplanade includes additional concrete seating areas, while the sidewalk running along the top level serves as a link in the larger Olympic Discovery Trail, called the Waterfront Trail as it runs through downtown Port Angeles. EDIZ HOOK

Good views await

Ediz Hook is a 3-mile-long sand spit 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.

Explore the downtown

TAKE A LOOK UNDER THE SEA The tanks at the Feiro Marine Life Center are gurgling and sweating, the 45-degree water siphoned from Port Angeles Harbor at odds with a warm summer morning. The marine life within them seems static until a center 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 a stone’s throw from Hollywood Beach. The aquarium was dedicated in November 1981, but Feiro died in early 1982 before it opened to visitors. In January 2008 it achieved nonprofit status and welcomes more than 16,000

visitors annually. Visitors can observe local marine life in the center’s touch and view tanks and bank of aquariums, including one with a young giant Pacific octopus captured in the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Among the marine life visitors can see and/or touch are starfish, sea cucumbers, sea urchins, several types of small crabs and shrimp, scallops, tubeworms, sculpins, eel-like gunnels, sponges, mussels and starry flounders. Visitors can check out an interactive display of the Elwha River Restoration project and the removal of two dams on the Elwha River. The project began in September 2011 and is the largest dam removal in the United States. For hours of operation and fee details, visit feiromarinelifecenter.org.

Art on the Town is an ever-changing outdoor art project that graces downtown Port Angeles sidewalks. The art ranges from the realist to the abstract, conveyed in various media. Eleven steel sculptures along Laurel Street called “Avenue of the People” have become a popular photography opportunity for visitors. Conrad Dyar Memorial Fountain at First and Laurel streets features cascading water and benches for sitting and resting. The three-level Laurel Street stairs begin behind the fountain area and connect First Street to Second Street. Those who make it to the top will see a spectacular view overlooking town.

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. Built as one of 2,500 libraries funded by philanthropist Andrew Carnegie between 1883 and 1929, the library was built in 1918 for $13,000 in the “arts and crafts” style of classic brick with large arched windows, golden oak beams and tandem fireplaces. After a $1 million restoration to undo modern renovations, the museum opened in 2004. The Clallam County Historical Society decided early on that the main floor the museum would house its permanent exhibits while a large room in the basement would be home to temporary ones rotated on an annual basis.

olympic national park Mountain vistas, pristine coastal beaches, glacier-carved lakes and enchanted rain forests await.

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 remaining 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 coast and magnificent stands of old-growth trees and temperate rain forest. A World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Reserve, Olympic National Park is celebrated for its dramatic variety and untamed beauty. On June 29, 1938, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the bill establishing Olympic National Park. Today, the park is visited by about 3 million people each year.

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

U.S. Highway 101. 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.

A MOSS-COVERED GEM

Discover the magical Hoh Rain Forest Olympic National Park’s Hoh Rain Forest — which is the result of the West End getting 100-plus 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. Explore by hiking the Hall of Mosses. This hike starts at the visitor center at the end of Hoh River Road. The trek 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 rain forest to the Hoh River. Budget about an hour for the round-trip hike. Roosevelt elk often can be found searching for food in the forest in the early morning or at dusk after most tourists have cleared out for the day. Remember that elk are wild animals and are very protective of their young, so keep your distance.

A variety of wildflowers decorate the landscape of Olympic National Park in the spring and summer. In the mountains, look for lupine, avalanche and glacier lilies, phlox, delphinium and paintbrush. In the forest, keep an eye out for trillium and skunk cabbage. Along the coast, you will find a variety of daisies, paintbrush and other delicate wildflowers. Numerous publications have listed Olympic National Park’s Shi Shi Beach as a top beach experience year after year for good reason. This wilderness beach offers breathtaking views of the Pacific and nearby Point of the Arches, excellent tide pools, spires, arches and more. The Shi Shi Beach Trail, a 3.3-mile trek from the Makah Reservation to the beach, is the easiest way to reach the ocean. A $10 Makah Recreation Permit is required to use the trail. Point of the Arches is a 2.3-mile one-way hike along a sandy beach from Shi Shi Beach.

SPRING SUMMER 2014

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 the land into the ocean. Powerful forces fractured, folded and overturned rock formations, which help explain the jumbled appearance of the Olympics. 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 still crowned by alpine glaciers, the Olympics retain the distinctive character that developed from their isolation. Glacial ice is one of the foremost scenic and scientific values of Olympic National Park. 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 glaciers of Mount Carrie, Bailey Range, Mount Christie and Mount Anderson. 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.

Klahhane Ridge MOUNTAINS OF FUN

Hurricane Ridge offers views, hikes Hurricane Ridge is the most easily accessed mountain area within Olympic National Park. It is located 17 miles south of Port Angeles off Mount Angeles Road, the southern extension of Race Street that intersects U.S. Highway 101 in Port Angeles. Simply follow Race Street out of town and follow signs leading to the Hurricane Ridge. Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center is a great place to start your visit at the ridge. Stop there for brochures, maps, snacks and tips regarding your visit. It is open daily in the summer and whenever Hurricane Ridge Road is open during the remainder of the year. Hurricane Ridge offers ridgetop traverses and steep trails that descend to subalpine lakes and valleys. Hurricane Hill is a paved trail that climbs to a panoramic view of mountains and saltwater. It has an elevation change of 700 feet. The first .25 mile of the 1.6-mile (one way) trail is wheelchair-accessible with assistance. Cirque Rim is an easy paved trail with views of Port Angeles and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The half-mile (one way) trek has an elevation change of less than 50 feet and is wheelchair-accessible with assistance. Klahhane Ridge is one of the most popular trails at the ridge. The first 2.8 miles of this trail (elevation change of 250 feet) is on a ridge to a junction with the Klahhane Switchback Trail. An additional mile climbs 800 feet on the Switchback Trail to Klahhane Ridge. The trail is 3.8 miles one way.

Old-growth forest and subalpine lakes populate the Sol Duc landscape. The Sol Duc River serves as a key highway for coho salmon, running through the valley and ascending to the lakes and headwaters in the surrounding mountains. Chinook and coho salmon ascend the Sol Duc in late summer and spawn in late fall, while cutthroat trout and steelhead run in the fall and winter and spawn into the spring. The Sol Duc is one of the few places where salmon run in every season. To get to the Sol Duc area of Olympic National Park, take U.S. Highway 101 west from Port Angeles or east from Forks. Turn southeast on Sol Duc Hot Springs Road and follow it 12 miles. Ancient Groves is a self-guided nature trail found off of this road. The loop through old-growth forest is less than a mile. Sol Duc Falls, a 1.6-mile roundtrip, is a great hike that wanders through the forest to a cascading waterfall. The trailhead parking lot is off of Sol Duc Hot Springs Road. The longer, 6-mile Lover’s Lane Trail is a loop that meanders through old-growth forest and past the falls. The trail links the Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort to Sol Duc Falls. It can be reached from the Sol Duc Falls trail or campground trail. After a day of hiking, relax in the Sol Duc Hot Springs at Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort, where you will find three mineral soaking pools and one freshwater pool. Even if you are not a guest at the resort, you can still pay for day-use access to the springs. The resort (and the hot springs) are open from March to October.

THE WILD COAST CALLS

Where the land meets the mighty Pacific More than 60 miles of Pacific Ocean coastline form a vital component of Olympic National Park. 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 just looking in a tide pool, you will be amazed at what you see; what first look like rocks are, in fact, small sea animals.

PARK THE RV OR PITCH A TENT

Rangers suggest getting to your camping destination early, particularly on holiday weekends. It is a first-come, first-served basis at all established campsites except at Kalaloch. To find out if a campground is full, phone the park at 360-565-3130. All park campsites provide a picnic table and a fire pit. Park campgrounds do not have hook-ups or showers. Concession-operated RV parks are located within the park at the Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort and at Log Cabin Resort on Lake Crescent.

Lake Crescent Lodge EXTEND YOUR STAY

Stay in historic lodges and resorts during your visit to Olympic National Park If outdoor camping just isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t your thing, check out these other overnight options. Four lodges spanning the North Olympic Peninsula provide comfortable accommodations directly inside Olympic National Park. Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort (open late spring to early fall) offers several rustic cabins that are free of modern distractions such as telephones, televisions and radios. These cabins offer access to mineral hot spring soaking pools and one freshwater pool. Kalaloch Lodge (open year-round) is perched high on a bluff just steps from a pristine stretch of a sandy Pacific Ocean beach. The main lodge offers two ocean-view suites and three

rooms. There are also several cabins and additional rooms in the Seacrest Building. Lake Crescent Lodge (open late spring to Jan. 1) was built in 1916 and is an ideal base camp for enjoying Olympic National Park. A variety of guest room options are available, including the lakeside Roosevelt cottages. Log Cabin Resort (open May to September) offers lakeside chalets, lodge rooms, cabins, full hook-up RV sites and tent camping sites. Although it is not located within Olympic National Park, nearby Lake Quinault Lodge (open year-round) was built in 1926 and has several room choices, many with lakeside views, as well as boathouse rooms that are pet-friendly.

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.

memorabilia including 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, a pancake breakfast, a lively parade, arts and crafts vendors and more. This year’s tasty event takes place Saturday, Aug. 2, and promises to deliver some of the best blackberry treats you have ever tasted. For information, visit joycewa.com/ joycedaze.htm.

The store, built in 1911 by Joe Joyce, from whom the town gets its name, remains very 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

Salt Creek Recreation Area

SALT CREEK OFFERS CAMPING, TIDE POOLS, MORE

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 ($24 for county residents, $27 for non-county) and 53 standard sites ($19 for county residents, $22 otherwise). Half of the sites may be reserved in advance; the rest are open on a first-come, 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 more information, visit clallam.net/Parks/SaltCreek. html or phone 360-928-3441.

lake crescent Pristine lake offers azure-colored water, hiking trails and plenty of photography opportunities. Lake Crescent is a deep, glacially carved lake located entirely within Olympic National Park, approximately 17 miles west of Port Angeles on U.S. Highway 101. A massive landslide isolated Lake Crescent from Lake Sutherland about 7,000 years ago. There are two uniquely adapted fishing populations that call the lake home, the Crescenti and Beardslee trout, that resulted from genetic isolation following the landslide. At an official maximum depth of 624 feet, Lake Crescent is the second deepest lake in Washington. Unofficial depth measurements of more than 1,000 feet have been recorded. Lake Crescent is known for its brilliant azure waters and exceptional clarity, caused by a lack of nitrogen in the water that inhibits the growth of algae. Lake Crescent has several hiking trails, some of which climb the surrounding mountains and others that explore the lowland forests and creeks.

HIKE TO AN AMAZING WATERFALL

Take a stroll to Marymere Falls Marymere Falls by way of the Barnes Creek trail is a favorite hike for people of all ages. The 0.8-mile trail leaves from Storm King Ranger Station and meanders through stands of old-growth trees along Barnes Creek until reaching a staircase to view the 90-foot falls. Those looking for more of a challenge should consider leaving the Barnes Creek trail on the return from the falls to tackle Mount Storm King. A 1.9-mile, calf-burning uphill climb leads to an overlook that on a clear day features spectacular views of Lake Crescent, Vancouver Island and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. A primitive trail continues to the mountain’s summit, but it is steep and exposed, and should only be attempted by skilled hikers.

the war ended. The rails were later removed, but the trail remains for hikers and mountain bikers to enjoy. More information about hiking along the trail is available at the Storm King Ranger Station. The turnoff from U.S. Highway 101 to Olympic National Park’s Storm King Ranger Station leads to several picnic tables nestled in the trees, and makeshift sites along the shoreline provide the perfect place to enjoy a picnic lunch or dinner. Last-minute lunch supplies can be purchased at Shadow Mountain General Store, located along U.S. Highway 101 at Lake Sutherland, or at Fairholme General Store, located at the west end of the lake. The Storm King Ranger Station area includes restrooms and access to potable water, a ranger station, a boat launch and trails. After the picnic, consider getting out on the water. Boat launches are located at both east and west ends of the lake. Rowboats are available for rental from historical Lake Crescent Lodge. Whether it is taking a row, kayaking, sailing or simply relaxing on the beaches and shores, Lake Crescent is a great place to visit, hike and stay for the night. There are several lodging options if you want to extend your Lake Crescent experience. On the west end of Lake Crescent, the Fairholme Campground has 87 campsites, one of which is wheelchair-accessible. The campground is open April through mid-fall. Sites cost $12 per night and are first-come, firstserved. The Fairholme Campground Trail begins across Camp David Junior Road and wanders through dense stands of trees. For less primitive accommodations, try Lake Crescent Lodge or Log Cabin Resort. Lake Crescent Lodge (lakecrescentlodge.com) is located at Barnes Point on Lake Crescent Road just off Highway 101. Log Cabin Resort (olympicnationalparks.com/ stay/lodging/log-cabin-resort) is located on East Beach Road, north of U.S. Highway 101.

forks/west end The West End features surreal and fantastically green rain forests, coastal beaches and more. Trees covered in moss surrounded by enormous ferns, beaches dotted with sea stacks and rolling rivers tinted by glacier powder dominate the wild 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. Located along the Pacific Ocean, LaPush is home to the Quileute tribe. In the spring, visitors can look for migrating gray whales, while surfing and kayaking off First Beach are popular during the summer. Fishing charters also are ready to help you bring home a catch. The Quileute culture is celebrated during Quileute Days, an annual event that is open to the public. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festivities, which include traditional dancing, canoe races and a salmon bake, are scheduled for July 18, 19 and 20 in LaPush.

View from LaPush Road HOME OF THE QUILEUTE TRIBE

Beautiful ocean views are plentiful

LaPush is a wonderful place to stretch your legs after making the journey to the coast. The seafront town is the home of the Quileute tribe and offers beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean. You can stroll to First Beach to watch surfers catch a wave or simply to watch seabirds soar above James Island (the island is called a-ka-lat in the Quileute language, which translates to the “top of the rock”). The island, located at the mouth of the Quillayute River, is sacred to tribal members. Throughout the years, the island has been used to spot whales and was a burial spot for Quileute chiefs. Public access to the island is not permitted. First Beach is one of the main spots to watch for gray whales as they migrate along the coast. The beach also is an ideal location to watch tribal fishermen return after a long day on the water. A short stroll over to the Quileute Harbor Marina will allow you to see them unload their catches and to view colorful stacks of crab pots, nets and coolers. Keep your eyes open for brown pelicans, which often fish in the river. As you wander through town, stop by the general store for a snack and head back out to the beach to watch the sun set over the Pacific.

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 12-foot-tall carved loggers. This cozy little museum has exhibits depicting local history dating back to the 1870s. Constructed in 1990 by 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 historical 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. The West End is the perfect place to try your hand at freshwater or saltwater fishing. Several tour guides offer a variety of trips on local rivers or off the coast. Check out the Forks Chamber of Commerce (forkswa.com), the Neah Bay Chamber of Commerce, (neahbaywa.com) or the Clallam BaySekiu Chamber of Commerce (clallambay.com or sekiu.com) for advice on booking a tour.

Visit the ‘Big Spruce’ Attempting to hug the Big Spruce on the way to the Hoh Rain Forest is a must for first-time West End visitors. The tree measures more than 270 feet tall, is about 12½ feet in diameter at the base and is estimated to be more than 550 years old. Although there are taller spruce trees in the forest, the roadside location of the tree makes it a great place to stop to stretch your legs. Short trails wind through stands of trees, ferns and nurse logs.

Abundant rain forests, wild rivers and coastal beaches are just part of the allure of the West End. 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 North Olympic Peninsula trips. The main route, U.S. Highway 101, twists and turns around beautiful 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. Be sure to have your camera ready to take a photo at a moment’s notice. It is common to see a bald eagle soaring above Lake Crescent or elk drinking in the Hoh River. Stop in Forks to stretch your legs, buy lunch and learn about the town. 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 historical buildings or happenings. For more information, stop by the Forks Chamber of Commerce at 1411 S. Forks Ave. (360-374-2531, forkswa.com).

Another glory of the West End is the accessibility of its beautiful beaches. Close to LaPush are Second Beach and Third Beach. Both involve short hikes through forest but are worth the effort as you are rewarded with long stretches of beach. Ruby Beach, located about 35 miles south of Forks, is one of the most scenic beaches in the state. It offers rugged sea stacks, flat sand and a small stream that flows through it at the base of the short trail from the parking lot. The beaches at Kalaloch are easy walks from car to shore.

Hole in the Wall PICTURE PERFECT

Take a trek to a real ‘Hole in the Wall’

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 sea-carved arch, is about 1.5 miles north of Rialto Beach. It is within the Olympic wilderness but can easily be reached at low tide from Rialto Beach. During your trek along Rialto Beach, watch for bald eagles perched in the taller trees along the bluff. A variety of other birds will entertain you along the way. Watch for black oystercatchers, guillemots, grebes, scoters and harlequin ducks as you stroll. 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 the Wall when the tide begins to cover the floor of the arch. Take care when exploring tide pools under and near the arch. Rialto Beach, located about 75 miles from Port Angeles, is accessible by Mora Road, off of LaPush Road.

SPRING SUMMER 2014

East of U.S. 101, Olympic National Park’s Hoh Rain Forest — which is the result of the West End getting 100-plus 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 trek 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. 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 round-trip 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.

Paradise for birders, photographers From Grays Harbor to Neah Bay, more than 600 rocks, reefs and islands dot the rugged coastline. Three wildlife refuges totaling 430 acres are within the boundaries of Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary and Olympic National Park. Hundreds of seabirds and other marine animals can be observed from vantage points along the way, particularly near Kalaloch and LaPush. During migration seasons, more than 1 million birds gather in the area. The Flattery Rocks National Wildlife Refuge runs from Cape Flattery to the Ozette area. Quillayute Needles National Wildlife Refuge extends from that southern boundary to about Kalaloch. The last of the three is Copalis National Wildlife Refuge, from south of Queets to just north of Grays Harbor. All refuges are closed to the public to protect the habitat.

Bald eagle off Ozette But visitors can observe crowds of seabirds, either from land or sea. A good pair of lightweight binoculars and a camera are good accessories to have on hand. Protective rain gear, or at least a sturdy plastic bag, is recommended to protect cameras from rain showers. Most of the islands are small enough that they never have earned names on a map. Destruction Island and Point Grenville are among some of the better-known locations. Refuge staff warn that boaters should stay at least 200 yards off the islands, both for their own safety and to avoid disturbing birds. The refuge areas are the primary breeding grounds for the tufted puffin, with its striped head and peculiar beak, and the common murre, which resembles a little penguin. The region, where 80 percent of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seabird population nests, supports 12 types of marine birds. In addition, peregrine falcons and bald eagles reside with their cousins. Several types of seals, sea lions and otters also stop by the local kelp beds.

OTHER FORKS LOCATIONS

Replica of Bella’s truck at the Forks Visitor Center

STILL BITTEN BY TWILIGHT 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. A majority of the four books of the Twilight series — and five motion pictures — are set in Forks. Forks, the epicenter of the vampire territory, is about 60 miles west of Port Angeles along U.S. Highway 101. You’ll spot the famous “The City of Forks Welcomes You” sign as you enter, where many fans have had their pictures taken. The Forks Visitor Center, 1411 S. Forks Ave., is at the south end of town. At the visitor center, staff and volunteers can direct visitors to local landmarks as well as share all the juicy tidbits about the area. Fiction and real life intertwine as fans can find locations from the novels throughout town. Although Meyer didn’t have specific

148

Forks homes picked out when she described them in her 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. Outside, “Esme” — Edward’s “vampire mother” — leaves a note on a dry erase board to let fans know what the Cullens are doing. Feel free to take pictures, but do not go inside unless you are a guest.

Forks Visitor Center, 1411 S. Forks Ave., to take photos next to a replica of Bella’s red truck from the books and the movies. You will find plenty of Twilight information here as well. Forks High School, 261 S. Spartan Ave., is where the characters attend school and where Bella and Edward met. Forks Police Department, 500 E. Division St., is where Police Chief Charlie Swan, Bella’s father, works. Forks Community Hospital, 530 Bogachiel Way, is where Bella — a self-proclaimed klutz — is a frequent visitor, and where Dr. Carlisle Cullen — Edward’s “father” — is employed. The hospital even has a special reserved parking spot for Dr. Cullen. Forks Outfitters, 950 S. Forks Ave., is considered the “Newton’s Olympic 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. If you miss the sign, there’s another one by the visitor center.

First Beach in LaPush

DON’T FORGET 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. The Quileute Community Center, just off First Beach, hosts a drumming and healing circle for tribal members to share stories, dance and share culture with each other and visitors each Wednesday beginning at 6 p.m. A field near the Quileute Prairie Cemetery reportedly has been the site of some very unusual baseball games. Be respectful of the cemetery.

MORE IN PORT ANGELES

As Forks has no movie theater, Bella and her friends venture to Port Angeles to catch films. The former Lincoln Theater, 132 E. First St., is considered the same cinema where some of the characters see films. The first three film adaptations of the books were shown here, with many fans showing up before opening night to take in all the excitement. The theater closed this past winter. 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. You can even dine on mushroom ravioli with a Coke, just as Bella did. 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. In the first novel, Bella describes catching a small plane from Seattle to Port Angeles, where her father picks her up and they drive to Forks. She would have flown Kenmore Air into William R. Fairchild International Airport, located off Airport Road on the outskirts of Port Angeles.

FISHING, HUNTING LOWDOWN 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.

Forks, WA

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 are also available online at peninsuladailynews.com.

HUNTING

North Olympic 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 successfully complete a hunter education class before they can purchase a hunting license.

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. check the Washington Department of For information on which shellFish and Wildlife regulations. fish are and are not safe, and dates The best way to figure out what’s and locations on seasons,phone the open and what’s not is to visit wdfw. state Department of Health’s beach wa.gov/fishing/shellfish. closures/shellfish toxin hotline at Dungeness National Wildlife 800-562-5632 or log onto the Fish and Refuge sets its own seasons and rules.

Ocean kayaking off First Beach in LaPush NO WAVES, NO GLORY

Surfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up in LaPush Surfers and ocean kayakers will not want to miss the chance to catch waves off First Beach in LaPush. While surfing can be done in winter when huge waves can be found off First Beach, most people opt for summertime when warmer weather brings more inviting small waves breaking over nearshore sandbars and water temperatures above 50 degrees. Surfers and other beachgoers will find parking at several areas along the coast at LaPush, however vehicle access is limited at the Quileute tribeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lonesome Creek RV campground located on the south, and more popular for surfing, side of the beach. Comfortable, modern beach cottages located just a short walk from the beach are available for vacation rental at Quileute Oceanside Resort in LaPush (quileuteoceanside.com). Surfboard and wet-suit rental for those wanting to try out surfing are available at the Three Rivers Resort located about halfway between the beach and U.S. Highway 101 on LaPush Road. Custom surfboards and a full range of professional surfing gear can be found at North By Northwest Surf Co., 902 S. Lincoln St. in Port Angeles.

AN EPIC JOURNEY

Don’t miss the Salmon Cascades The Salmon Cascades overlook is a popular destination during late September, October and early November. Located about 5 miles down Sol Duc Road, visitors come to watch determined coho salmon leap up the falls on the way to spawn upstream in the Sol Duc River. The taxing journey of more than 50 miles leaves the salmon scarred and deteriorated. From the time they emerge from the gravel beds they were spawned in, young coho spend about one year in their natal streams before venturing to sea as a smolt. These coho will spend about two years in the sea growing to proper size before heading back to the Sol Duc River to spawn.

To reach the rugged North/West Coast, drive west from Port Angeles on state Highway 112, which also is known as the Strait of Juan de Fuca National Scenic Byway. 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 world-renowned 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.

The stroll along the beach to the petroglyphs at Wedding Rocks to the south sounds equally inviting. Don’t be fooled. The boardwalk can be treacherous in spots. It is quite slick when wet and the beach is an anklebending jumble of rock and gravel. The trail starts at the Ozette Ranger Station with a bridge crossing the tranquil, tannin-stained water of the Ozette River. The path soon splits in the woods, one branch heading west toward Cape Alava, the other southwest to Sand Point. Each trail forms a leg of a triangle loop hike, with a 2.9-mile stretch of beach forming the third leg. The path traverses an up-and-down path through young spruce and hemlock packed tight with ferns and other greenery. Part way through the hike, the trail enters a clearing, once the site for homesteader Lars Ahlstrom. After the prairie, the boardwalk plunges into the dark heart of a forest of Sitka spruce and fern. The sound of ocean surf and the fresh whiff of ocean air soon spur weary legs to a scenic overview of the rocky coast: the many weather-beaten rock formations and the several tree-capped islands near the shore draw the eye’s attention.

Rather than carry heavy backpacks any farther, hikers can pick a campsite among the twisted spruce and shouldertall grass just north of the trail. Then unburdened, they can head off with light daypacks for the one-mile trek of hopping tidepools and avoiding shifting rocks south to Wedding Rocks — named after a pictogram depicting a man and a woman with a sexual symbol of a bisected circle. The carvings are estimated to be 300 to 500 years old. Respect these historical and sacred artifacts, which predate European settlement in the Northwest. If the tide is low, continue along the surf. If the tide is high, use the steep but short signed trails that bound over rough headlands. Continue on wide beach and approach another spot that may require a headland detour if the surf is high. Continuing south, the going makes its laborious way across wave-tossed stone past a headland to Sand Point, where stately spires jut out of the sea. A circular sign just past the point marks the trailhead back to the ranger station. Pets, use of weapons and wheeled devices are prohibited on coastal beaches and trails. Reservations are required for overnight camping between May 1 and Sept. 30. For more information, phone Olympic National Park’s Wilderness Information Center 360-565-3100.

Stop by the Makah Cultural and Research Center for a glimpse into what life was like for the tribe 300 to 500 years ago. 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 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 also has large, illustrated displays with information on Makah history, a 26-foot-long skeleton of a 31-ton gray whale suspended over handcrafted cedar canoes plus a gift shop. The museum also offers classes and guided tours for additional fees. Class participants can learn to carve or weave in the traditional Makah tribal ways. Reservations are required. The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. except on New Year’s Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. For more information, phone 360645-2711, makahmuseum.com.

Pillar Point County Park is located 10 miles east of Clallam Bay on Highway 112. It offers saltwater-beach access and a concrete launch ramp for small boats, and is a great place to start a kayak trip. Pull off the road and picnic as you feel the breeze blowing off the water and hear the shorebirds. This is also the location of an Audubon-designated IBA (Important Bird Area) due to the unique estuary bay shoreline habitat and wide 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 park includes public access to Clallam Spit, a mile of a sand/gravel saltwater beach and access to the Clallam River Watch for eagles and osprey feeding on the beach. It also is common to see a variety of marine life just offshore.

victoria British Columbiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital city offers natural beauty, recreational sites and plenty of charm. Victoria has been the capital of British Columbia dating back to colonial days, with the first government buildings erected in 1859. Construction on the current legislative buildings began in 1897, with additions built in several phases from 1911 to 1915. The buildings are a gallery of the finest materials, including tons of marble from as far away as Verona, Italy, that surround provincial leaders. Stained glass, includes the showcase Queen Victoria Diamond Jubilee window in the reception room near the Legislative Chamber. Self-guided tours are available. All tours are free of charge. Sessions of British Columbiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Legislative Assembly are open to the public. Parliament Buildings are a short walk from the ferry terminal for visitors from Port Angeles. Dozens of hotels, motels and bed-and-breakfast establishments are within walking distance. Downtown shops, the Royal British Columbia Museum and the Fairmont Empress Hotel are within sight.

So much to see

BEAUTIFUL AND INSPIRING

The Butchart Gardens What started as a sweet pea and a single rose in 1904 has blossomed into The Butchart Gardens, a 55-acre cascade of color that overwhelms the senses. More than 1,000 varieties of flowers can be enjoyed during a walk through the gardens, but allow yourself plenty of time — one visit can take several hours. The former cement factory and quarry site at Tod Inlet can be reached by taking the ferry from Port Angeles to Victoria, then traveling 12 miles north by bus or car. Transit and tour buses are found three blocks east of the Victoria ferry landing. Butchart is a series of gardens, each with a distinct flair. The gardens’ full-time, year-round gardeners are constantly planting different flowers, which are identified in a published flower guide noting different flowers by common names written in several languages. The gardens keep with the Victorian tradition of seasonally changing the outstanding floral displays. Gardens are open year-round. Admission prices vary. Butchart Gardens, 866-652-4422, butchartgardens.com.

A bit farther from downtown — so you may want to catch a ride — the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, 1040 Moss St., is a public art museum with almost 17,000 works of art. When it opened in 1951, the gallery exhibited art in the Spencer Mansion. The mansion, built in 1889, is now adjacent to the museum’s seven modern galleries. Consider traveling by pedicab for a relaxing tour filled with historical tidbits to Craigdarroch Castle, 1050 Joan Crescent, a lavishly furnished 1890s mansion. This legendary Victorian mansion was built on a hill overlooking beautiful Victoria. It has 39 rooms, 87 steps to the tower, stained glass and woodwork. Victoria’s Chinatown, founded in 1858, is the oldest and most intact such district in Canada. If you enter from Government Street, you’ll pass under the Gate of Harmonious Interest. The gate is made of Taiwanese ceramic tiles and elaborate, decorative panels. Explore the shops and stands as you wander through narrow alleys like the historic Fan Tan Alley, which is only five feet wide and three stories tall.

REQUIRED CROSSING DOCUMENTS

All U.S. citizens and permanent residents who cross the international border must carry a valid passport or an accepted traveler program card to return to the United States via sea, including passengers aboard the ferry to the Port Angeles port of entry. This is due to the implementation of the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative, a homeland security measure that resulted from the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. It also affects travel to Mexico, Bermuda and Caribbean nations. Oral declarations of citizenship alone are not accepted. Citizens of the United States and Canada will need to present one of the following if taking the ferry between the two countries: • Passport, passport cards or trusted travel program cards (NEXUS, SENTRI and FAST) • An enhanced driver’s license/ identification card • U.S. military identification with military travel orders, U.S. Coast Guard Merchant Marine ID document when traveling on official maritime business, or enhanced tribal cards Visitors to the North Olympic Peninsula who are not U.S. or Canadian citizens will be required to have a passport and possibly a visa to enter the U.S. A permanent resident of the U.S. will be required to show his or her immigration “green card” at the ports of entry into Canada and the United States. All U.S. and Canadian citizens 15 and younger only need proof of their citizenship with an original or photocopy of a birth certificate or citizenship card. Groups of U.S. and Canadian citizen children 18 and younger, when traveling with a school or religious group, social organization or sports team, will be able to enter under adult supervision with originals or copies of their birth certificates or other proof of citizenship. Those with a criminal record — including a DUI — can be denied entry into Canada. However, there is a process for applying for a waiver. For more information, visit U.S. Customs and Border Protection at cbp.gov and Canadian Border Services at cbsa-asfc.gc.ca. Government personnel at the ferry terminals in Port Angeles and Victoria can also answer questions.

CROSSING THE STRAIT OF JUAN DE FUCA

Time to catch the ferry to Victoria

The North Olympic Peninsula is the gateway to an international experience. The privately owned Black Ball Ferry Line operates the MV Coho, which takes both passengers and vehicles between Port Angeles and Victoria daily. Departure times vary seasonally, with up to four roundtrips available during the peak summer months. Crossing time takes approximately 90 minutes. Departures leave from the Port Angeles ferry landing, 101 E. Railroad Ave., and return from the Victoria ferry landing, 430 Belleville St. For updated schedule and fare information, contact Black Ball Ferry Line (360-457-4491, cohoferry.com).

EXPLORE HIDDEN VICTORIA When you tire of the traditional tourist sights in Victoria, seek solace at Witty’s Lagoon or Fort Rodd Hill. Located within 15 minutes of downtown Victoria, they provide a break from the island’s tourist attractions. You can spend an hour or a day at Witty’s Lagoon, 12 miles west of Victoria near the coastal town of Metchosin, which offers a 56-hectare park (2.47 acres equals 1 hectare), blending dense woodland, tidal lagoon, sandy beach and rocky shore — and near seclusion. Bilston Creek snakes through forested second-growth, laced with delicate lady fern. It’s a short hike along the trail (bring hiking shoes that can handle mud) before you leave the dense greenery and come upon the lagoon. The waters are warm and shallow, and sea snails, rock crabs and a variety of fish migrate from the ocean. At low tide, you can traverse a spit that leads to Tower Point to look for purple sea stars or white acorn

barnacles. Occasionally, a harbor seal or sea lion swims by. Heading back toward Highway 1A near Colwood, stop at Fort Rodd Hill and historical Fisgard Lighthouse. The fort dates back to the early 1800s, when it was built to guard Esquimalt Harbour. This former base for the Royal Navy’s Pacific Squadron still boasts bunkers, a battery tower, headquarters and living quarters. The lighthouse is reached by a short causeway that connects the fort to Fisgard Island. Constructed in 1860, it is the oldest on the west coast of Canada. It was hand-operated until 1929 with the keeper trekking up five flights of stairs four times a day to trim the wick of the kerosene lamp. Inside the lighthouse, displays inform the visitor of the “Graveyard of the Pacific” that has claimed so many ships over the past nearly 200 years. For details, phone 250-478-5849.
