In 2008 my husband and I took our three children (then aged 17, 12, and 9) on a road trip from our home in Utah to Washington State, in part to visit my sister-in-law and her husband. The seven of us spent one glorious but very long day exploring Olympic National Park. Among other sights, we walked a nature trail and ate a picnic lunch at Hurricane Ridge. I felt like we were on the top of the world in this mountain area. The view was amazing!
