This is one of my favorite photographs from a recent trip to Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park, WA. Clear days are fantastic, but I love the atmosphere created by cloudy, foggy, partially obstructed views.

I visited Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park for the first time back in August – unfortunately many of the trails were closed for management/removal of mountain goats (via helicopter!). Even though I wasn’t able to hike around as much as I may have liked, the small loop trails provided fantastic views of the clearing clouds over the surrounding mountains and hillsides.
