Believe it or not, the Olympic Peninsula is wet. Yes, mind-blowing news for a location in the Pacific NorthWest. But over there it rains. It pours. Then the sky takes a break for all of 4.5 minutes and, when it gets bored with how dry everything is getting, it starts spitting again.

Regardless, our backpacking trip this last week was an immense success fun-wise. You just have to have the right mindset. Mainly, as one other backpacker put it, ‘mentally prepare yourself to be cold and miserable’.

Sage advice. Enjoy.
