Hurricane Ridge, Olympic Nat'l Park
I have a list below of memes I am joining for this week, and to save time I am doing one post for all. They are all fun memes to participate in...I hope you can join in with the fun and check out some of the participating posts. Special thanks to all the wonderful host and their memes, I hope you have some time to check them out.
Above are some of my first views of the park were the birds and critters. The American Robin, Red-breasted Nuthatch, Gray Jay, one of my Washington state lifers the Varied Thrush, the black-tailed deer and a chipmunk.
Our shadows on the trail..The subalpine forest is a transitional zone where trees grow smaller due to the weather.
The sign above list some of the mountain peaks, the highest summit in the park is Mount Olympus at 7980-foot.
Above views from the Hurricane Ridge visitor center and the overlooks.
The hazy international view from the trail is the city of Port Angeles, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Victoria British Columbia.
Views of some pretty reds on the mountain side and the subalpine firs.
The Red-Breasted Nuthatch one of my favorite birds, it has been a few years since seeing one in my yard. I hope you enjoyed this visit to Hurrican Ridge and the Olympic National Park. I have so many photos from our trip and visit to this park. Thanks for visiting my post and as always I appreciate your comments.
