A friend and I want to leave Vancouver on Friday, spend time at Olympic, then fly home to the East Coast on Monday. What is the best route to the park? What can we do while we're there? Is this enough time to really see anything? A million other questions I'm not thinking of?
* Obviously: time. Three-ish days isn't much.
* We have no car, but can rent one if need be.
* Neither of us are campers (I have never been camping, she hasn't since childhood). We would love to camp (for fun and economic reasons), but would camping be safe since we are so inexperienced?
* Hoh Rainforest is a must see.
My main motivation for the trip is to see the Hoh rainforest, but I'm open to any activities along the Olympic peninsula if that seems more feasible given my time constraints.
