USA - Olympic National Park, Washington

overcast 10 °C

We darted up into Olympic National Park, with just one night to check it out. Wow it's amazing. Towering snow capped mountains and pine tree covered slopes. This is the National Park where the Twilight series was filmed, Lucy was in awe. We stayed in 'Heart o The Hills' campground on Hurricaine Ridge, a beautiful campground, surrounded by old growth forest trees and greenery.

After sorting out our gear and rigging up some curtains, we spent our first night camping in our van (Franklin)! Our first night was a little rough I won't lie, it was freezing, and it didn't help Paul was hogging the only sleeping bag we have!! But waking up surrounded by nature was worth it. We were all set to do a hike the next morning and jump back on the road, when we realised we had a flat battery. Luckily a very friendly camper by the name of Charles came to the rescue with his truck. We missed out on a hike but still drove up Hurricane ridge to check out the spectacular views.

Sounds great guys! We don't have an end date yet - let's see how far Franklin takes us, then we can hand it over to you! Enjoy the rest of Central America.
