Olympic National Park Hike

Olympic National Park is in Washington state and I did a crazy hike there! 17+ dreadful miles, and sitting in a tent for 14 hours, freezing, no choice but to stay in there more and entertain yourself (the happy part is that I drew all day). And hardly nothing to eat out there, just trail mix and nuts, small stuff, like that. After the hike I had to go on a 3-hour drive to a place with very good fries, but not-so-good grilled cheese.

Back to the hike, the reason that this is a “PAN POST” is because we saw a lot of cool nature, after all, PAN is all about nature, right? I didn’t see enough nature to say I liked the hike, and I definitely did not love it, nor think it was okay, so, I hated it—except the nature! But, here are some pictures with captions to show you what it was like—and at least I earned a Junior Ranger badge from this!

The first night when we slept, it wasn’t so cold then.

I called it an Octopus Tree! But with more than eight legs!

Beautiful Deer that I saw—good part!

Tired, miserable hike—that’s why I’m frowning.

At least there was a rainbow!

Lunch Lake, finally. Too cold to swim in, and slippery rocks!

Now, here are the pictures I drew in the tent. They are part of the art series: Theo’s Dog County Life.
