Day 0: Olympic National Park


Daniel and I left Seattle mid-day Sunday and drove to Olympic National Park. It rained almost the entire drive. We arrived at the Fairholme campsite around 5 pm – a drive up site located on Lake Crescent. The site has just opened for the season and we found ourselves the only campers the first night. Since none of the sites were occupied, we were able to grab the best site – a spot in the corner located on the lake.


We set our hammocks and tents since we would be there two nights. I slept in my hammock both nights, but kept all of my gear in my tent. I was pretty disorganized when we first arrived – being able to organize it all in my tent out of the rain was crucial.

I was also a little nervous to sleep in my tent as the temperature was dropping fast as we setup camp. I recently purchased an under quilt from UGQ. This was my first time using it… if I got too cold during the night, I figured I would hop into my tent. The quilt worked great and I was able to stay in my hammock both nights!
