Hurricane Ridge Tour
Hurricane Ridge, probably named for some ferocious winds, seems to be anything but! Only a few short miles from Port Angeles, you start your drive into the beautiful Olympic National Park. The scenery changes dramatically as you enter a forest full of deer that graze along the roads and an amazing panorama of steep mountains that offers views of cliffs, valleys, and amazing vistas of the Straits of Juan de Fuca. You'll see ships traveling to distant continents and our beautiful San Juan Islands and Canadian Gulf Islands.
Bring your sunglasses and a warm wrap as the weather can range from snow flurries to bright sunshine. For the more adventurous souls there is skiing and a famous lodge at the end of the road. Bring along hiking shoes if you would like to venture off on one of the many trails. Your camera is a must for you will want to bring home all your memories of this beautiful place.
The adventure begins on Monday morning (an ideal time to catch the wildlife during their morning feedings). We will gather before departure time to arrange carpools. There is usually an admission fee per vehicle unless someone has a park pass.
Pool tables have always gone hand in hand with adventure, vice, and women of mystery. Usually it's the men who own the room, but at Esprit things are a bit different.
Imagine a roomful of short-skirted hoochies competing fiercely for the prized title of Esprit Pool Tournament Champion. A 20's gangster moll here, a film noir femme fatale there, and a biker chick over by the bar...drop them all into a small pool hall, and you have the Annual Esprit Pool Tournament.
The Naval Elks Lodge hosts the tournament in their private pool room. There will be no-host bar and food service and assistants to help run the tournament.
This is a friendly tournament and everyone has plenty of opportunities to play regardless of skill level. Get familiar with the rules for Coin Operated 8 Ball and contact Stephanie, the pool tournament coordinator, if you have other questions.
Back at the Red Lion, many attendees also enjoy hanging out in the hotel bar which truly becomes one of the hottest and most interesting places in town during the week of Esprit.
On Tuesday we have more fun...
