We found a winter wonderland awaiting us when we reached the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center. A light snow had started falling even before we hit the parking lot, and things got worse from there.
Fortunately the heavy fall ended almost as abruptly as it started and after only a brief spell, replaced by a return to the lighter snowfall that preceded it.
Fortunately the roads remained relatively clear for our trip back to Port Angeles and our awaiting ship — Holland America’s MS Oosterdam. Nevertheless the trek to Hurricane Ridge was a stunning end to a wondrous journey that had begun a month before in Sydney.
On this week’s Fun Photo Friday I will present some of my favorite shots of Hurricane Ridge. That post will also serve as the farewell set of images of this transpacific cruise. I hope you’ve enjoyed the journey. My next travel series will take you on a ten-day cruise of Mexico, including two ports seldom visited by cruise lines. before that series however I have at least one recipe coming up for posting, and perhaps another firearm review or two.
By the way, if you’re reading this and other material authored by me on The Destinary website, this post was not “Posted on (fill in the date) | By destinary” as they’ve been erroneously claiming; this material was in fact reposted. The Destinary have also been claiming the right to do so, without links back to the original and without full attribution (“by RDoug” and a nonworking link is not proper attribution) with a rather bizarre interpretation of U.S. copyright law in which they claim I’m responsible for changing my RSS feed settings so that they cannot skim my material for commercial purposes. That would make reading my blog less convenient for you, which I’m not willing to do. As such, I’ll be running this little diatribe on all travel related posts until they cease and desist, along with this:
