Olympic Game Farm

May through Decenber 2012

We are spending May through December on the Olympic peninsula in Washington with a lot of medical stuff going on. After a month of rain with little sunshine, the sun kind of came out so we took a drive toward Sequim. We took mostly back roads because it was a Saturday and there was a lot of traffic going at highway speeds when we wanted to meander. After lunch at the Dinner in Sequim we drove toward what we though was the Sequim Bay. On the way toward the bay we saw a sign that said the Olympic Game Farm was just down the road, so we took a detour and drove through the Olympic Game Farm. They sold a loaf of bread for two bucks to feed the animals plus ten bucks each to drive through. We had a great time driving through and seeing/feeding bread to the animals. By the way don't through bread to the peacocks as they will not eat it. But the Brown Bears will sit or wave to you and will catch the bread with their mouth, and a lot of other animals will stick their head in through the window to get the bread.

We follow the arrows through the park. The road starts on top of a hill overlooking the park.

Prairie dogs are always fun to watch.

This one is getting a sun tan without rain.

Lamas and Tibetan Yak have free reign through the park.

This Tibetan Yak is waiting for someone to come along and feed him.

These are the only two Zebras I saw in the game farm.

This is a sit and wave, now throw the bread.

There are only two Black Bears. One is in the bunker.

You really don't want a bison head in your window.

A few weeks later with the sun again shinning (WOW!!) Nancy wanted to check out Mt. Walker View Point. Along the way we stopped at a café in Quilcene on Hwy. 101 for lunch. Then stopping at Falls View Campground and took the trail to the falls where we took a few pictures. Then on to Mt. Walker View Point road which went from 400 to 2700 foot elevation for a panoramic view of the area including Mt. Rainier, which amazing enough didn’t have clouds around it so it could hide. We could also see the sky scrapers downtown Seattle from up here.

Hike is only .05, our kind of trail.

Nancy held this drooping lily up so I could get a shot of the inside.

Back in the truck we head up Mt. Walker Viewpoint.
