This past Friday, Pastor Andy unexpectedly decided that we would head to Olympic National Park that afternoon. Everyone was in utter shock, some thought he was kidding, and some were rocked by Pastor Andy’s spontaneity. But a few hours later-we were all packed, booked hotels for the night, and left for the ferry. For many of us, it was the first time we had gone on such a spontaneous trip. How exciting! On the ferry, we enjoyed a beautiful view of the sun setting as we headed toward Port Angeles, where we were staying for the night.
The next morning, we got breakfast and headed toward the park. We hiked the 1.6 mile Hurricane hill trail, and man, was it bang for your buck! It had a beautiful panoramic view of the mountains, which no picture could capture the beauty, but these photos are pretty dang close!
On that trail, we also met many little critters as well as some larger animals that came to greet us. We saw marmots (apparently only found in Olympic National Park!), pheasants, deer, as well as the so-called dangerous mountain goats!
We then preceded to Crescent lake, which had beautiful clear blue waters, and took a short hike to see Marymere Falls.
We then ended the night with Mike’s four star BBQ for dinner, and a stop at Kerry park, where we saw the beautiful city-scape of Seattle.
It was just a fun time of fellowship and being together as we enjoyed God’s beautiful creation. Join us next time!
