Wednesday, 8/13/13: Olympic National Park
There is zero internet or Verizon coverage, so I’m going to write short summaries and post them when we go somewhere that does have.
The Sol Duc RV Park is in the national park, but privately run. We have 30 amp power and water. There is a dump station up the road a bit. There are only 17 spaces, and they are all quite tight with the exception of the one we’re in, space 17, that is a double space and can be used by two RVs that are camping together. It is also an end spot, so although during the day we notice the cars on the road, we have a decent amount of space on both sides. Cost is $36.20 per night, this includes taxes, it was listed as $33.
We enjoyed a lingering morning in bed, and a good breakfast before setting out around 11:00 am on an easy six mile loop hike up to the Sol Duc Falls.
The weather was warmish, and the sunshine was fleeting.

|As we hiked near the falls there was a brief spattering of rain, but it didn't last long.|
Fungus among us
Shortly after returning to the Alfa in the afternoon is started to rain again. Very Washington like! We enjoyed a very cozy and relaxed evening listening to the patter of rain on the roof.
