Leaving Forks, I headed south along Route 101 toward the Hoh Rainforest. The turn-off to the visitor's center led me up 15 miles of winding road. It would have been slow-going in good conditions. With snow still piled up on either side of the road, it was a 40 minute crawl. The trees, usually emerald with moss, were iced with a thick layer of white.

I do fandom hardcore. From 2000 to 2007, I spent several hours daily reading, writing, and drawing things related to Harry Potter. As sad as it may sound, it was a really amazing time in my life. I made so many great friends, friendships that have lasted beyond the end of the series. And to make it even better, the books generally went the way my friends and I had hoped.

The second day of my road trip around the Olympic Peninsula was by far the most successful.
It was also the day I didn't drive, aside from the brief trip from my hotel to the ferry dock and back. Was there a correlation? Most definitely. But we'll get to that a bit later.
