Olympic Peninsula, Wa

A Chilly Morning View at Nisqually Wildlife Refuge

In the winter, finding a place to hike can sometimes be difficult. The Olympic Peninsula can be a long drive, and we all know how the weather can be. That is why, if you are looking for me, you should check Nisqually Wildlife Refuge. Close to Olympia and Tacoma, yet a world away from the hustle and bustle of the Interstate 5 corridor.

In this picture, I was lucky enough to see the flats of Nisqually with snow, which is pretty rare since it is at sea level. The barns are historic and help make the area seem less wild than it really is, and in the background, the Olympic Mountains are often visible.
