Road Trip!

We took a weekend trip to the Olympic Peninsula (along with about a quarter of the population of Washington State, it sometimes seemed). We hiked, saw amazing scenery, but mostly we hiked the Ozette Loop. The loop goes for about 9 miles - three to the ocean, three along the coast, and three back the the trailhead. At the end of our first third of the trail, we were at Cape Alava, the westernmost point in the continental US. Which I thought was awesome. So naturally, I brought my knitting.

Cape Alava!

I knit about a row on my Spey Valley sock from Knitting on the Road. But mostly I hiked. And I am not used to hiking that much - I am very sore now.

The entire, long set, including a visit to Hurricane Ridge, is here.

Hooray, that looks lovely! I, on the other hand, spent the weekend scrambling to help open a yarn store... (more to come on that soon).

We did that about a week ago. We didn't hike the Ozette loop (maybe next time) but we did get to Hurricane Ridge and Hoh Rainforest. It was great. Glad you had a good time too.
