Day 271 – Olympic Loop (Part 2)

Day 271 of a Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways

Mount Walker

We started out the day taking a four mile dirt road up to the Mount Walker Viewpoint.  There is both a north and south viewpoint.  On a clear day, the Seattle area, Mount Rainier (the highest peak in Washington), Hood Canal with one of the longest floating bridges in the world over tidal waters,
Mount Baker, and several other peaks in the Olympic Mountains are part of the scenic panorama.  Today, however, fog was the only view.  Mount Walker is home to a handful of caches, though, so we picked up a few before bouncing back down to Highway 101.
