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.

We were excited to visit Olympic National Park, which was on our bucket list. The views from Hurricane Ridge were spectacular & we scored a site at Heart of the Hills Campground.
