From the Road & More

As the journey continues, we landed at Bonaparte Lake Campground in north-central Washington on Friday. We got lucky once again and found a very nice site backing up to the lake. We were greeted by loons "yodeling" and a pair of bald eagles flying along the lakeshore. Outstanding welcoming committ...

Nehalem Bay State Park – Planned on driving a tad more today, but Hwy 101 with a combination of heavy traffic, rain, and fog made us change our mind. There's a bunch of yurts across from us. — Nehalem Bay State Park.

Mora Campground – We have arrived at the most western point of our trip -- after this, we will be heading south. Our campground is on the Quillayute River and a couple of miles from Rialto Beach on the Pacific Ocean. Another amazing place -- lots to explore.

Kalaloch Campground – We couldn't find a site in this campground that backed up to the ocean, but we're pretty darn close.

After two months and one day on the road, we have reached our main destination -- Olympic National Park. The RV gods rewarded us with another sweet site. At this point, I'm not sure how we are going to get the trailer out (it's a pull-through with a weird angle), but I have about a week to come up with an idea. — Heart O' The Hills.

Found a site for the night. We were a bit frazzled after the ferry experience: they wedged us in between a nasty overhang & an 18 wheeler. It took some doing to get off. Onward tomorrow.

Another short drive day -- went a measly 57 miles. But what a difference: it's very lush, and everything is covered with moss. The campsites are tucked in a very dense forest at Newhalem Campground. Nice. — North Cascades National Park.

Short drive day, only 114 miles. Not many miles, but the scenery has definitely changed. Getting to Klipchuck Campground, just east of Cascades National Park, early in the day had its advantage: we pretty much had our choice of campsites. — Klipchuck Campground, WA.

Landed again—this time at an Army Corps of Engineers Campground in Idaho. We started the morning knowing the general direction we were headed but had no idea where we would end up. We got fortunate as only three campsites were left out of the 67 total. First water & electric hookups in five weeks. What a luxury! Since leaving NM, we have been dry camping (water nearby & running the generator) at Forest Service campgrounds. — Riley Creek Campground.
