For the second weekend of July 2021, I decided to return to the Olympic Peninsula. It was too early for most of the trails on my list, but I found a great option starting from the highest point you can drive to in the National Park at Obstruction Point. The hike was not as long as many of my day hikes, but difficult as it climbs 1,500ft down into a valley and back up the other side. The most annoying part is at the end of the day when you're tired and you have to climb 1,500ft back up out of that valley to the car. However, the views here more than make the effort worthwhile. Incredible clear views of the Olympics and especially Mt Olympus, along with a full 365 degree view from the top of Grand Pass Peak made it a very rewarding day. The next morning I was a bit tired -- still recovering from the previous weekend in the Sierra Nevada so I just did some short hiking around Hurricane Ridge rather than anything strenuous.
