Hey all! Anyone have any pics of these places you want to share? I would really like to see some more of these areas, especially Quilcene and Brinnon as I didn't get to visit there. I only have photos of the main areas of PT and PA, and not many of those, and I would like to show the place to someone If you have anything you could/would share let me know

Here are some photos of the Olympic Peninsula. They're not the towns you're talking about, but it seems like you really like the whole peninsula from what I've seen of your other posts. Here they are!

First Beach


Neah Bay

Thank you sooo much I appreciate it! We did get to Neah Bay but only to the museum. We had an extra kid with us, my son's friend, and all he did was complain whenever he had to walk so we decided to skip out going to Cape Flattery (that's right isn't it? the name?) ibut we will go this time. Was that where some of these were taken? If not let me know so I can get out to it Beautifully taken by the way!

We sure did. It's a great little hike that isn't difficult at all. Even if you don't have a lot of time, it's worth it to hike down the trail!

Yes, I took the pictures. Well you should should take some time and go on that hike. You should plan a day and drive around the whole peninsula. It's a long drive and if you love road trips like me, you'll really enjoy it. It's especially nice when the sun comes out and you can see the Olympics.

Between Quilcene and Brinnon the highway (101) has some amazing mountainous views, with some nice campgrounds in the woods. Brinnon itslef is a tiny little place, but has a great nursery. Actually the drive up 101 all the way from Black Lake (Olympia) to Forks is pretty incredible.

I'll have to see if I can find some pictures on my harddrive of the Quilcene/Chimacum area. I have them uploaded to Flickr, but it didn't want to share, so I have these from my Photobucket account. In the meantime, here's a few that I took of the Olympic Peninsula. There's no place like home

This is of my favorite lavender and berry farm, Graymarsh Farms. It's located in Sequim.



La Push, which is only a bus ride away. Gotta love the beaches, and no, I haven't seen any werewolves.



This is my favorite spot in Port Townsend (besides Waterfront Pizza). It's located at Fort Warden.



Ruby Beach, located on the West end. By far one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It rivals Hawaii.



This is on the side of the highway as you exit Sequim on your way toward the Casino. It used to be the old McCrorie homestead. Great biking trails in front!




Lake Crescent. Our favorite hangout in the summer. Can't forget to stop for an ice cream cone on the way home at Granny's Cafe.
