The Sequim Dungeness River pours down the mountains out of the Olympic Mountains from its source, snow and glaciers. Way up in the mountains, I took this photo of the Dungeness River. How could I not? It was so beautiful, and if you can imagine the sound of the gurgling water, it was just therapeutic.
If you like nature, hiking, photography, or just soaking in the beauty of the Olympic Peninsula, you’ll love Sequim and the Olympic National Park. From where I took this photo, there are miles and miles of mountain trails. You’ll run out of energy and snacks before you run out of trails. This location is at the end of Palo Alto Road and near the intersection of the Sequim Dungeness River and the Gray Wolf River.
Dungeness River Fishing
The Dungeness River has some nice fish in it, and in the hottest days of summer when my boys were young, they would jump off the bridge into the river on Woodcock Road, and periodically they would raft down the river to where the river finishes its long run into the bay by Three Crabs Road. The Sequim Dungeness River is definitely one of nature’s treasures.
