Hurricane Ridge, Olympic National Park, Washington



This is a location of pure peace. Quiet when we were there. At the beginning of the day. Not to busy, all fun times that day. Check out those clouds. (the 2nd view was out of the visitors center, giving you an even up higher view of these clouds & mtns.)

If you can tell me why this named "Hurricane Ridge", you will make my day. I am clueless. Don't hurricane happen near water? I can understand why it would be called like wild winds ridge, or something like that??! It is super windy there.  so cold too. My nose hairs were even freezing. COLD!!! Beth ( :

Hello Beth, Hurricane Ridge shaped by the wind and snow. It supposedly has wind gusting up to 75 miles an hour, which leads to the name Hurricane Ridge. When were you there, we went Sept30-Oct 8 2016. We have have just missed you.

Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :
