Buffalo Kisses from
from Caroline Walker Evans
SEQUIM, Wash., March 10 (UPI) -- Visitors to The Olympic Game Farm captured video of a buffalo enthusiastically shoving its face into their car window to feed on scraps of bread.
"Driving through the Olympic Game Farm, feeding the animals and a buffalo gets a little too friendly," Evans wrote in the video's description. Visitors are allowed to feed the animals, provided they only give them whole grain bread.

Hurricane Ridge Bike Ride
My friend, Brad, and I riding Hurricane Ridge in the Olympic National Forest near Port Angles, Washington. 17 Miles, approx 5400ft of elevation gain. Some of the best road surface I have ever ridden. Cars are friendly and the views are breathtaking.
If you want to do this ride I recommend you do the 'Ride The Hurricane'. The ride is in early August and they shut down the road to cars. The mountain belongs to the cyclist for the day.
