Along with members of the hiking group from the Auburn Senior Activity Center, I spent three days and two nights at this lovely facility.

The cabin assigned to me ("Raccoon") had four bedrooms, each one containing three bunk beds. I shared my room with a friend. Other people reserved private rooms.

I'm wearing a fanny pack in front under my coat
to hold my camera!)
We shared breakfast and dinner in a "mess hall" with a group of teens visiting from New York. Most of them seemed to be having fun, but a couple of girls confessed that they weren't all that comfortable in the great outdoors! (Limited cell phone coverage.) Our senior group assembled our own sack lunches to take with us on hikes. (More about our hikes in future posts.)
After a day of hiking, the NatureBridge dock was a great place to relax.
I'll post more photos from our getaway and hikes at Hurricane Ridge, Dungeness Spit, and other areas in Olympic National Park in the coming weeks.
