Day 35 – North Along Hood Canal – August 3, 2011


Today we drove north on US 101 which parallels Hood Canal.

The Half-Way House was recommended to us as a must stop for their immoral cobber. Raija had the Marion berry and I had the strawberry rhubarb. Of course both were topped with ice cream that Mik got to share. Both were excellent.

Our turn around point was the View National Park where one can do a small hike to see the View Falls.

Our next stop heading back was Mount Walker. Mount Walker is 2790 feet above sea level and one can see Seattle and Mount Rainier.

It was just hazy enough that Seattle is not visible in the picture but one could see the Seattle sky line with the naked eye.

Our last stop before arriving back at camp was Rocky Brook Falls. A small hydrologic project was installed at the falls in 1986 which supplies water for Brinnon a small community along the Hood Canal.
