Brief Directions: Head West on US-101 into Port Angeles and follow the signs to the Olympic National Park. Take the park road up and into the Visitor's Center parking lot, turn around and as you head back out of the parking lot you will see a, hard to see, dirt road on the right just as you are about to leave the parking lot. Take this road 8 miles to the end.
Best Season: Spring
Description: When the road graders can get into and clear the snow and debris from Obstruction Peak Road to the trailheads at the road’s end we head up to see the wildflowers above the tree line. After returning from photographing the flowers I was packing up our gear when I turned to see these unusual clouds rising above the ridgeline at Obstruction Peak.
