Getting remote in Olympic National Park

What an absolutely incredible experience this has been! Terry managed to get PeeWee and the Toad all the way UP a 12 mile gravel road to a campsite named Staircase. Upon entering the park, we were embraced in a forest that was dark and thick with moss covered pines and deciduous trees. The campsites were far apart and very spacious. Surprisingly, Terry was able to get PeeWee into a level enough space. Check it out:

I have always wanted to come to this place. Luckily for us, the weather was fantastic. No rain! In a rainforest that’s a big deal. Temperatures in the low 60’s during the day and low 40’s at night. Good snuggling weather!

Here are some photos of our many hikes:

Terry said that this place reminded him of the movie Ferngully that Stephanie used to love!

Yesterday we hiked a little over 7 miles! Talk about forest bathing!

All of this for FREE. The campsite is free after September 15. It’s pack in pack out. Nice and private. In order to do this the right way, you must plan carefully. You must plan the meals ahead of time as

well as conserve energy and water. We both enjoy and appreciate this challenge.

Well, looks like we are headed south, but not sure where yet. Weather dictates much of what we do. I leave you with this photo in hopes that you find peace within it, just knowing it exists.

Thank you for following us as we ride and seek!💕

  1. I’ve been there. We camped in the mountains, near the beach and in the rain forest. When we were there we had great weather and I kept thinking, I could live here. Then people kept remarking that it isn’t usually sunny. Wondering if they just say that to keep the masses from moving there?
    Your photos do bring me peace, thanks, guys!
