Hood Canal Adventures: Kayak Brinnon
Oysters on the Beach Tour! Join us for a scenic paddle to a secluded beach for lunch and oyster shucking! Pics from last week's tour.
Wild Olympic 🏔 🐐 Hope everyone is having an awesome weekend 🙂
If you look at the water in the distance you can see a layer of ice built up on top. These are my favorite mornings to get hit with that first light. 🙂 Olympics, Washington.
The trail is 12 miles long and runs through the city of Port Townsend. It spotlights 18 historical sites of the S'Klallam people.
Here’s a quick update from William Tygart (me 😂 ) on what will be going on for the page for the next 60 days or so.
Reach out with any content you’d like me to post on the page , looking forward to heading into the woods to obtain footage for everyone when the rain comes back 😊❤️🤙

Looking for a short but energizing hike leading to a magical find? Head over to Guillemot Cove Nature Preserve near Seabeck, Washington to check out their historic stump! The trail starts on a hillside across a small footbridge and heads east through forest and meadow.

On July 4th the Humpback known as Mathematician (BCY0785) gave us some great fireworks before the sun even had a chance to go down. He was swimming by himself just northwest of Dungeness Spit and he got pretty spirited as a cruise shipped passed by in the distance. He breached 6-7 times and slapped his pectoral fins on the surface repeatedly too! Here are a few photos from our experience. Naturalist/Photographer, Bart Rulon

Foggy and misty this morning at the Upper Ellinor Trail Head. Please remember to bring proper hiking gear, clothing and supplies for those "just incase" moments. Make sure to let someone know your planned route and ETA for return. Make sure your cell is charged as well. Thanks!

Disco Bay Detour
From jellyfish and sea cucumbers to greenling and otters, the surrounding waters of the Olympic Peninsula are filled with life. Freediving allows us to glide through the blades of an underwater forest soaking in the magic of the sea.
75 ways seems like a lot but we’re sure there’s a couple more that didn’t make it onto the list.
🤔 What else would You add to this list?

I needed a little road up north and Mt. Walker was on my mind last night. When I arrived, there was a lot of cloud action going on and I decided to the north view point first. It was completely engulfed by clouds and had very little photo opportunities. So with fingers crossed, I went to the south view point and was happy to see these sights. Hope you enjoy and have a wonderful weekend.
Explore Hood Canal
The dock at Alderbrook Resort and Spa is great place to tie up for a bite to eat, or board the Lady Alderbrook for a scenic tour.

explorehoodcanal.com One of the steepest trails in the Olympic Range, perhaps it's called "wagonwheel" because, as author, Craig Romano, puts it, "you’ll bust your axle" hiking this unforgiving climb f you are unprepared. Are you up for the challenge?
Wouldn't it be just perfect if there was a lifestyle home decor store that also offered interior design services? 🤔That would be the perfect shop, and it actually exists in Port Townsend! 📍Join top performing Realtor, Katherine Hansen for a tour of the shop as well as a walk through of a home styled by the owner and designer of Conservatory Coastal Home, Heather Pollock. #americandreamtv

Fernweh: (n.) - Feeling homesick for a place you've never been.
So many places to check out in the Olympic Mountains! I love this word because it puts a name to a feeling I've never before been able to describe.

Olympic National Park shelters a unique rainforest, copious glaciated mountain peaks and a long strip of Pacific coastal wilderness—largely untouched and perfect for exploring on foot. http://bit.ly/2BgBe5J

Here's another from my hike up Buttcramp Ridge the other day with my kids in the Olympic National Park. I think this was the only stretch of trail going up that was flat. Thanks for taking a walk with me today.
Hard to drive by this Olympic Peninsula gem without stopping for some Kombucha and Peanuts!
Always a great vibe, staff is super friendly, they have more cool beers and snack and coffee than you can imagine.

Take a 25 minute drive from the top of Hurricane Ridge down to the bottom....in under 3 minutes 😳😂🤪🤙
I could barely make it past the halfway mark before my head hurt, see if you can stick around long enough to fly through the three tunnels.
Not everybody who heads into the Olympic National Park is a camper 😊. Sometimes you want to head back to a nice hot tub and a great evening after a hard day hiking.
We visited Robin Hood Village Resort in Union, just across the waters of Hood Canal , to find out what makes this cottage resort one of the favorite destinations for those exploring Olympic Peninsula.
“Escape to a romantic getaway at Robin Hood Village Resort today located in Union, WA.
The Hood Canal provides an enchanting escape from the hustle and bustle of Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia, and the entire Puget Sound Region. The region sits within the foothills of the majestic Olympic Mountains and features gorgeous wildlife. Bald Eagles and seals are regular visitors to the region and we even occasionally welcome a few Orcas.
Our resort features 16 unique cottages along Hood Canal.
Robin Hood Village Resort is nestled in a forested-nook alongside the historic Robin Hood Restaurant and Pub, and is walking distance to three dining experiences, including the award winning Alderbrook Resort & Spa. With live music five nights a week, there is no shortage of entertainment in Union.
We also offer free kayaks to our guests. Feel free to paddle about the Hood Canal and enjoy the views of the Olympic Mountains soaring bald eagles, and playful seals. After your paddle, come back to relax in one of the many private hot tubs on our property.
The Hood Canal area offers beautiful hiking, kayaking, waterfalls, oyster picking, crabbing, shrimping, clamming, fishing, and so much more.
Come enjoy our historic resort built in 1934 by Don Beckman, the Hollywood set designer for the original Robin Hood movie starring Errol Flynn.We are located on East State Route 106 along the beautiful Hood Canal.”
M4 Group 's Matt Clark joins Tygart Media atop High Steel Bridge on the Olympic Peninsula. Matt shows us a great viewing spot for a waterfall in the winter time as well as a "one in a million" shot 375 feet below.
"High Steel Bridge is a truss arch bridge that spans the south fork of the Skokomish River on Forest Service road #2202 near the city of Shelton, Washington in Mason County, Washington.
The High Steel Bridge was the second of two large steel arches to be erected by the Simpson Logging Company on Forest Service land in 1929. These bridges carried a single railroad track across formidable chasms opening up expansive tracts of previously inaccessible timber on the Olympic Peninsula.
The High Steel Bridge's 685 ft (209 m) steel riveted webbed arch rises 375 ft (114 m) above the Skokomish River's South Fork, placing it among the top twenty highest bridges in the United States.
The building materials—which included a considerable amount of concrete for the footings, lumber for the decking, concrete forms, and railings, and 750 tons of steel—were hauled by rail across the recently completed Vance Creek Bridge.
The American Bridge Company, a subsidiary of the U.S. Steel Products Company at the time of construction, was the contractor for the $131,000 structure. The Simpson Logging Company spent an additional $100,000 in lumber in the construction of the bridge. The total cost of the bridge was paid from the proceeds of timber subsequently hauled across it."
