A Hike Overlooking The San Juan Islands

Hike in Olympic Mountains


Our Weekend Road Trip this week takes us to Washington state in the mountains overlooking the San Juan Islands. Take a deep breath. The hike up and over to the water is not for the weak.  Enjoy the view.

* No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you, this is a repeat post. I’m painting our house this week and today I’m trying to beat a long line of thunderstorms before they move in. I’ll do better next weekend, I promise. In the meantime, enjoy the view…and sign up for the Writers’ Police Academy. The remaining few spots are waiting for you!


I was exhausted by the time we reached this point. The scenery, however, made me forget all about my aching calf muscles. Breathtaking!


A climb down led us to this deserted stretch of beach and remnants of long-forgotten civilization.


Orcas often frolic and feed just offshore.

* Coming soon…an exciting interview with Joe Bonsall of The Oak Ridge Boys! Did you know the Elvira crooner is a successful author? Joe is also a supporter and fan of our Writers’ Police Academy. As usual, he and his fellow “Oaks” have generously donated several autographed items for the WPA raffle.
