Follow the 101 north or south and Hood canal will offer gray vistas and views. Be see to stop at HamaHama oyster company for some fresh oysters and smoked salmon chowder.

Since the Olympic National Park is so large, there are so many aprproaches, entry and ranger stations. They were very helpful at the ranger station at Hood Canal. The vistas are lovely and the trails pretty easy.

This is a huge body of water surrounded by beautiful scenery from trees to farmland to mountains. Good for beach walks, boating, driving highway 101, and exploring. Lots to see and do here.
