Olympic National Park

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to my wonderful dad!

Olympic National Park is huge.  There are several areas of it, all very different and diverse.  It's a beautiful drive along the Pacific Coast to Port Angeles.  There are huge cliffs, the Pacific ocean, and bald eagles around every corner.  Beautiful.

The next couple of photos are of the glaciers on this mountain, Blue Glacier and Carrie Glacier.  For whatever reason, global warming or just the Earth's natural progression, the glaciers are melting at an alarming rate.

Carrie Glacier - above and below


She was sticking her tongue out at me!

It is SO pretty here.

The view of Port Angeles as you are coming into town.  Not bad!

This is Olympic Lodge - a BEAUTIFUL place to stay in Port Angeles.  The views of the back are breathtaking - very lush and green.

A beautiful building in downtown Port Angeles.

I had an amazing meal at a place called Bella Italia.  I did NOT go there for this reason, but it was in the movie Twilight.  It was the place that Edward took Bella on their first date.  If you're a Twilight fan, you would understand this.  If you are not a Twilight fan, you must be over 14.  It was a great meal.
