Despite Olympic National Park closure, Lake Crescent Cabin offers great home base for many activities this month!
If you've been thinking of heading to Olympic National Park, only to hear it's been closed (temporarily, due to the government shut down) don't despair! Lake Crescent Cabin is open and has some available dates late in the month.
Hoping for hiking? This time of year, East Beach Road is not heavily trafficked. The view changes as the sky and water change colors, and you can watch for river otter, deer, eagles, winter ducks and other wild life.
Want something a bit more adventurous? Adventures through Kayaking is still running their most popular day trip - the NW Adventure, a day filled with mountain biking and kayaking. You can also take the drive out to Neah Bay to visit the Makah Whale Museum., or walk the boardwalk along Cape Flattery, and watch for whales.
Looking for culture? The Storytelling Festival takes place in Port Angeles the third weekend of October. Come for the stories, then stay for a few days of relaxation at the cozy lake cabin.
