Backroads of Washington: Hood Canal Trip

Back when the leaves started turning Chris, Scooter the Dog and I climbed in the Dodge Ram and drove north for the day.  I checked out the “Backroads of Washington” book once again and we followed a large portion of the Hood Canal route.  Now that we’ve done this twice, the book is on my Amazon wish list.

At this rest stop somewhere before Quilcene, we talked with a lovely couple, also walking their dog, who were closing up their place for the season. They said the family has owned the place from one generation to the next and that back in the day, Erle Stanley Gardnerthe writer known for the “Perry Mason” series had a summer place nearby. Pretty cool, huh?

In case you don’t have a map handy, the Hood Canal flows up out of the Puget Sound and continues north until it reaches the San Juan Islands and the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

Beautiful, beautiful drive, I only took 110 pix!

Basically anywhere I pointed the camera was a good shot.  It was hard to take a bad pix, since the scenery was so beautiful.

See what I mean?

Here is a future camping spot…we may have to come back to…

there is just something about looking out over the water…its very mesmerizing.
