Port Angeles, Forks and La Push Washington
Thursday afternoon we took a little road trip, and ferry ride, over to the Olympic Peninsula where we did some camping, hiking, and site seeing. We camped in a KOA Kampground (that's how they spell it) and we absolutely loved it! I don't think I could ever go back to camping the typical way. They're located in all of the states and you can either tent camp, RV camp, or cabin/cottage/lodge camp. We stayed in a cabin for a couple of nights that had beds for all of us and electricity! Outside of each cabin was a fire pit, swing and picnic table. They also have different activities that could keep you busy all day. If you want to check out the website you can go here: www.koa.com/ Thanks to Robin and Fred for telling us about KOA!
Friday we drove down to Forks and La Push where we did some site seeing (for any of you who read Twilight or New Moon, you'll know why I had to look around there :)) and went on a hike through a beautiful forest that took us down to Second Beach in La Push. The only problem we ran into on our trip was during our 1.5 hour drive from Port Angeles to Forks, the roads were pretty curvy and when we were about 5 minutes away from Forks Elisabeth who was sitting in the back corner seat of the van puked all over herself and car seat! It was pretty nasty! We had left all extra clothes at the cabin, so we cleaned her off the best we could with baby wipes but she still wreaked so when we got to Forks we found the only shopping area, within about a 60 mile radius, and bought her a new outfit, they only had a few to choose from...down side of being in a small town I guess. Besides that, everything went smoothly and we had an awesome time! We've actually decided to make it a yearly tradition to go stay at a KOA Kampground and do some hiking.
