200 miles and 4 hours from our last stop - 1 night stay


Herb hitting the town in AberdeenHerb hitting the town in AberdeenWe were able to stay at the beach on Sauvie Island until mid-afternoon, because we didn’t have to drive too far today. All we needed to do was find a place to spend the night somewhere along the way to Kalaloch in Olympic National Park where we would be staying for three nights.

Aberdeen, Washington, was the right distance in that we would arrive in time to go out to dinner, and we would only have another hour to drive tomorrow to get to Olympic National Park. We found an Econo Lodge in walking distance to the 8th Street Ale House, which sounded perfect.

After dinner we took a stroll along the Chehalis River waterfront looking at the fishing boats before returning to our room. Tomorrow we would head to Olympic National Park where we had camping reservations in Kalaloch for one night and then a rustic cabin on the bluff for 2 more.
