Flourishing Wildflowers, Newborn Wildlife: Hurricane Ridge, Olympic National Park Professional Review and Guide
"Visit Hurricane Ridge to see gorgeous meadows of wildflowers, dramatic sunrises and sunsets, scenic mountain views, and close-up looks at black-tailed deer fawns and baby marmots. If you want to experience it all, drive up to Lookout Rock Vista before sunrise to catch the predawn glow.
Then watch the sunrise over the Strait of Juan de Fuca with the rolling foothills of the Olympics spread out before you. Scattered clouds create drama; fog is soft, with foothills rising out of the mist in subtle, delicate patterns. Continue up Hurricane Ridge Road to the top, stopping to see more views, wildflowers, and deer along the way. Deer at Hurricane Ridge are not tame, but they are accustomed to humans."
