Port Angeles and Olympic National Park…

Compared to the last few days, the ride to Port Angeles would be a doddle…!! It would take little more than an hour to get there, but I also wanted to visit the Olympic National Park, and ride to Hurricane Ridge, which would use up some of the spare time I envisaged having today… The […]
