On a different note, we saw some wildlife while out hiking, including a bunny rabbit of some type, and a female mule deer. The mule deer was right on the path, with another tourist standing far, far too close to it. And by that I mean within 5 feet. In Yellowstone, and Olympic National Park, they inform guests to stay at least 25 yards, away from animals. That would be 75 feet. All the animals in the parks ...

We left Silverdale at 9:00 a.m. for the two-hour ride to Port Angeles . . . to get rid of the rental car . . . then wait for the bus that departed at 1:00 p.m. I got the car fueled up . . . and we were on our way!
