Keep the Show on the Road! Posted July 14, 2008 Report Share Posted July 14, 2008 US101 in Washington does a nearly complete circle or loop, something I don’t believe any other US numbered highway can claim. The following map shows the Olympic Peninsula loop, around Olympic National Park. I have lived in the Northwest most of the past 40 years, and have never taken the full loop! In fact, I have only seen the Olympic Mountains from a distance, never from inside the Park! I have never been in the Park. I guess it’s that thing about the grass is always greener somewhere else. Well, I think we will “do the loop” soon…at least if our “dog sitter” (his former master, and my son) arrives next week to watch “ole Bo, the now homebound Malamute Wonder Dog. Believe it or not, a deer actually laid down within 100 feet of him today, and neither he nor the deer seemed to care. He is just too old (13), and the deer too confident to care, I guess. The ‘ole boy is sleeping beside the chair as I write. Becky has made several suggestions on the chat this evening as to places to see. But perhaps there are others here who have been to the Park or around the loop. Any advice? I am thinking this will be just a few days, maybe no more than two, maybe three. The whole loop is two lanes, with just a few miles exception. We have traveled the area between Olympia and Port Angeles, and between Olympia and Forks, but never connected the dots, so to speak. As usual, we will make a report, perhaps even in transit…depending on time and WiFi connections. Keep the Show on the Road! Dave Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
