This log cabin houses a communal kitchen and three separate single rooms for people to stay in.
On Tuesday, after a late start due to rain, I rode up around the north end of the island. Even though I only rode 18 miles there were a lot of hills that were so steep I had to push the bike up on foot... it was a lot of work and slowed me down quite a bit. Whew!
On Wednesday I got an early start-- for me that is-- and headed out of the hostel at 10am for the ferry to Tacoma at the south end of the island. It had rained again on Tuesday night and looked pretty threatening Wednesday morning. But fortunately the weather got a lot better than what you see here at the ferry landing where I caught the ferry to Tacoma and the Point Defiance Zoo.
After seeing a few episodes of Animal Planet's Meerkat Manor on DVD I was happy to find out that they had a family of meerkats on the Point Defiance Zoo. They were pretty busy little guys and were constantly digging. You can see a Meerkat Manor video clip at:

There was a very scruffy looking polar bear that looked bored to death...
...and a very bored looking walrus that did laps around the pool like this on his back.
...where I caught a passenger-only ferry to Bremerton that allows bikes, and from there caught the Bremerton to Seattle car ferry and then a short bike ride home.

These are a few pictures taken on a day hike along the Pacific Crest Trail in July near Mt. Ranier. The trail was mostly clear of snow except for the heavily wooded sections going in to Sheep Lake. There were also some great butterflies but they were a bit camera shy.
