    • Olympic NP or Mt. Rainier in May last week

      Washington State Apr 15, 2014 at 6:24 AM

      Hi All,
      I will be landing in Seattle on Fri night (5/23) and have 2 days with me to see one of Olympic/Mt. Rainier NP

      Which one should I select and what should be the "Must See" attractions, keeping in mind that this will be the Memorial Day weekend and some of these place may still be under snow

      My main objective is to capture nature/landscape photos, especially around Sunset / Sunrise / Night time. Are there any waterfalls/short hikes that I should see/do ?

      Thanks

      I discovered this "site" on your forum pages, but the latest update is from 2005.
      Can any one tell me if it is still accessible to the public, and still there?
      Sounds really cool!
      Thank you - (heading to Seattle in May)

      Passenger Ferry to San Juan Islands

      by Summer33 Online Now Sep 4, 2007 at 2:20 PM

      My husband and I would like to do a day trip to the San Juan islands this weekend, which islands downtown including restaurants, museums etc. are within walking distance from the ferry terminal? Which island has the most to do? Any suggestions for whale watching from the shore in September? Any other suggestions for two people that are on foot in the San Juan Islands?
      thanks for your help!

    • Whale Watching Recommendations

      by MDon Online Now Jun 15, 2006 at 3:18 PM

      My husband & I will be doing a day trip from Seattle and want to make the experience as unique as possible. We are young and in good shape. I am considering doing a day sea kayaking/whale watching trip or doing a zodiac boat trip (my understanding is that these are only out of Victoria?). We are not really interested in going on a big boat and are hoping to find a way to do this that truly makes the experience feel special as opposed to feeling like we're in a zoo with 100s of other tourists. Would you recommend the zodiac trip or sea kayaking and could you give me some recommendations for tour operators?

      where to stay

      by kezjono Online Now Jun 8, 2006 at 3:54 PM

      Where should we stay on San Juan Island in early July. We want to see the fireworks at Roche Harour on the 4th of July, but Friday Harbour sounds convenient. We are a family with 3 kids age 10months to 7 yrs so a place with a pool near a beach would be good any suggestions We will have a car
      Any suggestions??

      Honeymooning in the San Juan Islands

      by kdrumley428 Online Now Mar 27, 2006 at 7:49 AM

      My husband and I will be honeymooning in the San Juan Island in late April of this year. With the travel arrangements made, it seems a little silly to be asking the following questions but I am curious ...

      What can we expect as far as weather is concerned? I have looked up the averages, etc. on a mess of websites but am wondering if someone local to the area can give me a less scientific description.

      Any thoughts about the Place at Cayou Cove? Our reservations are made but we have another week during which we have the opportunity to change our accomodations if needed. I have heard rave web and travel guide reviews but was wondering if anyone here has been there personally.

      Restaurant recommendations? We have always try to stick with the local's choices versus what the travle guides say and have been rewarded greatly for this decision.

      Thanks so much to anyone that can offer any info!

      Can anyone recommend a place to stay on the San Juan Islands? How did you get there from Sea-Tac? What month did you visit? What was the weather like? How is the ferry system? I hope to hear from people who live there since I'm planning to
      relocate. I hope visit in fall 2005. Thanks
