As we leave Spokane, we only see flat land and no mountains in the distance as we travel on Route 90. We drove past Sprague Lake which is alongside the freeway. It’s listed as offering some of the best fishing in the area.
There was a scenic overlook along I-90 near Quincy, Washington. We pulled over and saw beautiful views of the Columbia River. We no longer have flat land!
The scenery along the highway was definitely amazing.
We also saw the Cascades mountain range in the distance as we were driving by the cities of Thorp and Cle Elum, Washington and continue along I-90.
We arrived in Olympia by late afternoon because traffic was so heavy from Seattle to our campground. When we checked into our campground the owner told us that the last several days they have had three inches of rain but it was blue skies when we arrived.
After settling in to our campsite, we cooked some dinner and then ventured off in the car to walk along the Pacific Ocean shores.
On our way we drove through Aberdeen which some consider the “Gateway to the Olympic Peninsula” because it is located at the southern end of the peninsula and Olympic National Park.
Ocean Shores, which is in Grays Harbor County, has a long beach and when we visited it was peaceful and a great place to unwind after a day of traveling!
