Hurricane Ridge "Hill" Snowshoe in Olympic National Park
Hurricane Ridge, or also called Hurricane Hill Snowshoe in Olympic National Park, snowshoeing is a nice thing to do in Winter when the snow is gently falling. This is located on Hurricane Ridge; where they have a small ski hill and snowshoeing routes you can follow. It's rather high elevation, 5760 feet near the top, so when it's raining in Seattle, you can take a day trip and get into something drier, at least that's how I look at it. Plus, it's fun to take a ferry across Puget Sound any chance you get. At the gate to the park, they charge you $15.00 for the car, which is good for a week. At Hurricane Ridge, they have a lodge with gift shop and food. The first part of the trail is a snow covered road that in Summer leads to a trail head for hiking. That is about 1.5 miles to that part, but if you take the longer route, it's about six miles round trip.

A great place to take pictures. We didn't have clear skies for the wonderful Olympic interior, but it was still very worthwhile.
This is me, Terry. Enjoying a rest while my picture is taken.
