Day 1 continued

The Olympic Pennisula is a gorgeous place. We motored along enjoying the scenery and the fresh air and suddenly, around Aberdeen, WA we see red and blue lights behind us. We pull over, confused as to why.
The WA state trooper walks up to Jeff and starts going through the "License and registration" song and dance.

Here's Jeff with the Statie car


The tool gives Jeff some BS about it being illegal in Washington State to have a GoPro mounted to your helmet because kids on crotch rockets stop traffic and do stunting. WHAT!?!?!?! So he hands him a ticket that vaguely states, "Illegal M/C helmet." Jeff, being the trooper, shrugs it off and we press on.

Heading north on the 101 towards Forks, WA


And a stop at a "rain forest" trail


The little Forest Service Roads up there are simply gorgeous;

Me


Jeff


We stop at one of the VERY few gas stops


And back on the 101 towards Port Angeles


After hours enjoying the clean fresh air we get a bit hungry, but one problem, lack of choices. The place we find is blah and over-priced...

...but the view isn't too bad...


...not bad at all.
