A long weekend? Tickets purchased!
We flew into Seattle and rented a Subaru (not until we returned our first choice because the seats didn't recline all the way) and took off for the Olympic Peninsula. We backpacked and camped on third beach (which we thought was second beach... that's what we get for hiking in the dark!) , explored the Hoh rainforest, saw lots of deer at Hurricane Ridge & car camped by a rushing river that we didn't know was there until sunrise. We ended our quick trip with a hotel stay in the city of Seattle.
We went and explored around Crescent Lake three different times in the two days we were there... I'm in love with it.
