Traveling the Coast, followed by ascent and descent of Olympus and going over the Divide was one of the best routes of my life. I decided to take a few days off to mentally digest all that I saw and experienced. In doing so, I would also be avoiding the 4th of July backpacking crowds in the Park.
Right after the 4th, I got word that mountain goats were hanging out in the hills above Port Angeles. This would be a perfect chance to capture one on camera - my first of the year. So I headed up and stayed at a place often frequented in the springs of years past.
