And...we're back!

We've just been visiting the fabulous Pacific Northwest. The weather wasn't great until the fourth of July, which was sunny and warm. However, clouds and chilly temperatures didn't stop us from driving through the spectacular Olympic Mountains, seeing flora and fauna, the temperate rain forest and sampling some of the fabulous food of Seattle.

First up today - the fauna, starting with an inquisitive deer that approached our car.

This deer lives on Hurricane Ridge, where, as you can see, there was still snow.

We didn't see any mountain goats, and judging by this warning, good thing!

For all you Twilight fans, we went to Forks and the temperate rain forest, where a family of elk browsed the verge. The temperate rain forest is fascinating, beautiful and yep, really creepy.
