    I know is going to be long and booring!! I have no idea what can be seen that area, so any suggestions are more than welcome!
    Ride around the west and north side of Olympic National Park, then take the ferry at Port Townsend and pick up Hwy 20.
    You don't want to miss Hwy 20 across northern Washington.

    Just looked it up on Google map and your suggestion looks like a good idea.
    101 or even 112 around the park. Should be a nice ride.
    Thanks, Lee!

    It's been a long time since we rode north of the park. I'm guessing we took 112 to get next to the water.

    One of the trips up there we took the ferry through the San Juan islands just for the scenic ferry ride.
    We were able to get off at Friday Harbor for a short time.

    Looks like a very nice area, with lots of riding to do. At that point in my journey, am sure will have enough, and will be thinking about going home!
    And is a long way from there to my place!

    Suggestion

    You could ride the route Robert Pirsig wrote about in Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. Begin in Minneapolis, ND, SD, MT, WY, MT, ID, OR, CA, end in San Francisco. I am thinking about it for this summer.

    That's a cool idea! I'm planning a trip to MT, ID, OR, CA this fall. I'm going to check that route out. Could also reread each chapter in the hotel as I go.
