Last week saw a journey north-westward to Olympic National Park here in the Pacific Northwest. I’ve mentioned before how I have very little affinity for the landscape and I hope to rectify that. There’s very little excuse not to as I have any number of scenic options barred only by the willingness to get up and go. I choose the Olympic National Park over Mt. Rainier or another spot given the variety the park offers.
The climate has been very cooperative here recently which helped. I traveled light, carrying only the Fuji X10 & X30. Strictly speaking not a landscape-centric setup but I my goal was to learn how to “see” the landscape and for that coupled with the expected heat of the day lightweight was the way to go.
My itinerary was to include Ruby Beach and the Hoh Rainforest. I’ve chosen to split the posts up a bit.
