Winter US west coast Road Trip

Posted on by maggiewilliams

In mid December 2008, I took off for road trip of the west coast of the U.S. from top to bottom.  Starting in Lynden Washington, just south of the Canadian border, I headed to the Olympic peninsula of Washington, and down the coasts of Washington, Oregon and California to LA.  I left at the beginning of one of the worst winter storms we’ve had in a long time here in the Pacific Northwest and I returned to the worst flooding we’ve had in decades.

I stayed in hostels along the way, of course.  Met a lot of neat people, did a few hikes, saw beautiful scenery.  It was great time.  Hope you enjoy.
