With the best backpacking buddies you could ask for, we shared 5 days hiking the Olympic coast. As a family trip I think we’d all say it takes the gold, but it required an equally impressive effort to navigate. Heavy packs, soft sand, endless boulder fields and surprisingly scare fresh water made for sore muscles, but the scenery and solitude left all souls smiling and asking for more.  An Olympic level adventure it was.
