After you leave Olympia and make the turn northward,
you aren't by the Hood Canal right away.
But that doesn't mean things are boring...
how could it be?
You pass by a drive-in theater.
Yes, there really are some of these wonderful places left!
And even better (at least for a mountain lover person like me)
you catch your first glimpse of the gorgeous mountains of the Olympic peninsula:)
Followed soon by your first glimpse of the fjord, AKA the Hood Canal.
And then miles and miles of this...
And you find yourself falling in love with this part of Washington all over again.
