On our final night of camping on the Olympic Peninsula, after a very peaceful night, we awoke to the sound of a very loud Jake Brake from a Logging Truck (I assume) on US 101.
On that note, I got up and built a nice fire with the remaining wood from the night before. Then, after picking up camp, we made the short walk on a level trail to the overlook of the waterfalls (hence the name Falls View Campground).

After viewing the waterfalls, we made the short, but steep hike down into the canyon to see the Big Quilcene River.

After leaving Falls View Campground, we headed back to Quilcene and then onto Kingston, Washington to ride the ferry over to Edmonds.

We rode the ferry Walla Walla across the Puget Sound to Edmonds. Once we arrived in Edmonds, we stopped at an antique mall not too far from the ferry terminal.

Our final stop of the trip was for our first restaurant meal, a nice big juicy hamburger. What a great (and delicious) way to end the fun trip of camping and sightseeing on the Olympic Peninsula.

Four days (of which 2 included travel days) is not enough to explore the Olympic Peninsula. I could easily spend two weeks exploring up on the Peninsula. On future trips, I’ll have to focus on a specific area and spend some quality time touring.
