Trusty transcript below:
Welcome to the Adventure Dispatch for the week of July 23rd to July 29th, 2016 in Olympic National Park. This week’s information is presented by the rugged and awesome staff at The Outdoor Society. Get inspired and explore the wild with us.
Well, July is almost over, meaning that you have five more months of 2016 to get out and explore the beauty of Olympic National Park. Luckily, the weather this coming week finally reflects that summer is back, allowing for long days of stunning views and cool nights of incredible stargazing. If you haven’t yet explored Olympic, this week will be amazing.
We start out as we always do, with the weather:
Here is our road closure and construction update:
If you plan on camping in Olympic this week, here’s the scoop.
For those visiting Olympic this week, The Outdoor Society’s “Trail of the Week” is Second Beach at LaPush. While all the coastal glory of LaPush tends to go toward Rialto and Hole in the Wall, Second Beach is a slice of true wilderness beauty along a hidden stretch of sand, forest and stunning sea stacks. At just four miles round trip, this hike is family friends and home to tide pools and the most gorgeous sunsets you may ever see. Capped off with a natural arch reaching into the breaking waves, hikers of all ages and abilities will fall in love with nature and be inspired by this hike. More information on these regions can be found on outdoor-society.com and in our Olympic National Park Guidebooks.
This week’s events around Olympic National Park are limited, but there as some cool ranger programs at Kalaloch Campground that are well worth attending. On Thursdays, from 8 to 9 pm there is an Evening Program: 100 Years Under the Sea. This evening program explores our underwater ocean world. The program is offered rain or shine and is a great way to get to know the area even better. A full list of Ranger-led programs can be found on the ONP website.
With that, this concludes this week’s Adventure Dispatch. Summer is here and you need to go outside and enjoy the sun and the warmth. You never know when it will return! If you have any questions, please reach out to us on Twitter and check our website for more info. This is Mathias saying, “Thanks for tuning in and we will catch you next week, same time, same place.”
