    Check out the blue glacier on Mt. Olympus. Bring a fly rod if you fish. I hear there's big dollyvarden in the Hoh.

    You can camp as close as a mile north of Rialto beach. (West of the town of Forks)
    I think the name of the creek at the delineation is Ellen Creek.
    That area is awesome. Go north from there as far as you can, and return, or go to Shi Shi Beach and hike south.
    Or do the Lake Ozette loop.

    Going up the Hoh it is flat, basically, for 12 miles then climbs up.
    This time of year ought to see a LOT of berries.

    You're going to have to hang on trees less than 4.45 feet in diameter with 14' straps.
