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.
