When I was originally looking at exploring Washington and Oregon, I planned on staying for several months, taking my time working my way down the coast. Then something came up which meant I needed to be in Albuquerque at the beginning of October, so a change in plans was necessary. A change that meant I would have to haul butt down the rest of the Olympic Peninsula in one day, bypassing a bunch of places I have heard great things about.
I did manage a stop at Ruby Beach which is right off the 101, so it wasn’t exactly out of the way. I had heard this place was amazing, and I wasn’t disappointed.
