Chris: What this video doesn’t show is that this family of about 20 was completely impeding the hiking path.
Kylie: Or our very real uncertainty (i.e. downright irrational fear) of these uni-horned creatures. Well, at least until Dad Of The Year came along, untied his jacket from around his waste, and spun that thing round his head like a life-saving helicopter. Apparently they’re fairly heckin’ blind animals and if you make yourself look big they will think you are a predator and scatter in turn. Can confirm.

I SWEAR TO GOD I WILL VENMO $10 TO THE FIRST PERSON THAT CAN TELL ME IN THE COMMENT SECTION WHAT KIND OF PLANT THIS IS
We missed Olympic National Park’s wildflower season, but these shy lo’ frosted guys were beautiful

Chris: This is atop Klahhane Ridge, where Mom Of The Year (spouse to Dad Of The Year) carried their not-so-very-small child all the way up with her superhuman maternal strength. Ungrateful Child Of The Year was quoted as wishing she could “just go home and lay on the couch.”
1. We stayed at Heart O’ the Hills and Hoh Campgrounds, both within Olympic National Park. 2. We hiked Klahhane Ridge, Hole-in-the-Wall, and Sol Duc Falls, all within Olympic National Park. 3. We saw elk, mountain goats, and sea monsters. Kylie also thinks she may have seen a cheetah, so there’s that. 4. It rains there all the time, so come prepared. We were lucky enough to be there for one of the worst wind and rain storms in nearly 50 years. Typhoons, baby. 5. We spoke to an old, solo traveler from Montana who told us that watching storms roll in from the Olympic Coast is one of the coolest experiences. We missed out, but he totally sold us on it. 6. What We Missed: Ruby Beach, Obstruction Ridge Road, and Lake Crescent, to name a few of many. (Olympic National Park is huge!) There’s never enough time, and always a reason to go back. 7. Thanks for reading! If you have any questions or thoughts on Olympic National Park or otherwise let us know in the comment section. 8. (Spoiler A-Yurt) Our next post in the road trip timeline will be about how we braced that once-in-a-lifetime storm mentioned above.
