DAY1: Colchuck Lake

I flew to Seattle from San Francisco, rented a car for 6 days and I spent 2 days alone before my friends joined me. I drove to Colchuck Lake from Seattle. This place requires you to hike a lot to get to the lake. It is a 14.5 km out and back hard hike with about 700 m elevation. It is really hard to get there but once you are there it definitely worth it because that is the bluest and most beautiful lake I have ever seen.

What I learnt is that ‘you have not been there if you haven’t gone swimming in it!!!’ SO PACK YOUR SWIM SHORTS!!!

On this day I camped alone in Leavenworth and my friends joined me the following day. I picked them up in Seattle and started driving to Olympic National Park.

DAY 2: Mt. Storm King

This is a very adventurous and dangerous hike. You can see my full Youtube video of this hike. To get to the top, you will need to use ropes to help yourself up because the trail is really slippery and steep. The hike itself is 9 km out and back with 600m elevation. Only do it if you trust yourself! here is what you get if you make it to the top!!!

We camped in Port Angeles by Elwha River for 3 days.

DAY 3: Sol Duc Falls

This hike is a short easy hike to get to the waterfalls. On the way we met black bears so be prepared, have a bear spray with you, and know what to do in case you meet bears! Bear spray is the most effective deterrent in bear encounters, and here is what to do:

black bear: gather together, stand tall and make lots of noise.

brown bear: remain still and calm

polar bear: ask for God’s help.

DAY 4: Hurricane Ridge

This is a 5km long hike in a beautiful place surrounded by beautiful colorful flowers and at the top, you will also find some snow! It reminded us of Switzerland. I recommend doing this on a ‘lazy’ day, it is a wonderful walk, and you can have a picnic on the top.

DAY 5: Hoh Rainforest

We drove to the other side of the National Park to visit a rainforest. We only walked around a little because then we headed back to Seattle to be closer to the airport for the next day.
