For those interested in where we'll be, plans look something like this:
Hurricane Ridge, where we shall be walking along the roof of the world and seeing some lovely geology. Oh, and flowers, too.
A trip up the Elwha River Valley for Last Dam Summer - they're taking out the dams soon, so this is our last chance to see.
And, if time permits, Lake Crescent, which is twelve miles long and carved by a glacier. If not, we'll be hitting that one in the ay-em.

Rialto Beach, if we get a chance, where we shall see the Hole-in-the-Wall.
Hoh Rainforest, because I've not yet seen a temperate rainforest.
And, if time permits, Ruby Beach, hopefully around sunset.
Then it's hope, and to sleep, wot knits - sorry.
If I get the opportunity, I'll be posting a few sneak-peaks from the hotel tomorrow. If not, you can expect something quite soon. And I did load up a little something to tide you over while I'm gone, just in case the idea of a day without Dana horrifies you.
Whilst I'm away, you might feel the urge to tell me about the mustn't-be-missed attractions in your area. This would be wonderful, especially if you live in Indiana or North Carolina, as it seems I may be
I'll see ye when I return from the wilderness, or at least the bits of it that can be easily reached by automobile.
