Back in May of this year, we had the privilege of heading out to the Pacific Northwest with a bunch of incredible makers and all around rad human beings as we camped under the stars on Vancouver Island and in the heart of Olympic National Park.
On the island, we woke to the sounds of Seals and Sea Lions of in the distance and filled our bellies before setting off on our daily adventures. We explored parts of the Ucluelet Wild Pacific Trail, had serene walks in massive old growth forests teeming with moss, and a rainy day in Tofino (on just about the most picturesque beach imaginable) where we donned our wetsuits and had a private surf lesson from the Surf Sister Surf School. In the evening, we huddled around the fire and conversed about anything and everything under the sun before crawling into our sleeping bags to prepare for the next day's coming adventure.
After ferrying back across to Port Angeles, WA we met our awesome group that was going to join us in exploring the Hoh National Rainforest and the beaches of Western Washington. We visited the Makah Museum up in Neah Bay, Hiked the trails near Cape Flattery, and made lunch in the field as we sat among endless piles of driftwood on Ruby Beach. In the evenings, we'd swing by the Sol Duc Hot Springs for a much-needed soak in the warm water before returning to camp for dinner.
A huge thanks to everyone who came along and helped make these trips incredible. We really miss telling stories around the fire, eating our "chicken-ish" stew, and singing along to 80's music in the van with all of you!
