Group of seals in the Strait of Juan de Fuca

Port Angeles is a small town on the northern side of the Olympic Peninsula and on the shores of the Strait of Juan de Fuca.  On Labor Day, we walked along the 100-mile Olympic Discovery Trail on the couple miles that pass through Port Angeles.  Much of the trail is right along the waterfront, where we saw a large group of seals (above) and sea lions.

We also spent a night in the Port Angeles Walmart, which had an incredible view of the Olympic Mountains.

The waterfront was quite industrial with a large saw mill.

  

  

Bluff above Port Angeles

Riding above Port Angeles is a bluff with many houses.  We joked that this is where we’d run if a tsunami hit.
