Railroad Bridge Park
Once you leave Port Townsend, head back down WA Rte.
20 to US 101, then head west (or is it still north at this point?)
towards the town of Sequim.
It's pronounced SKWIM. The name derives from a Native
American word meaning "calm waters".
Local officials have preserved this old railroad bridge over the
Dungeness River near Sequim.
If you have time, you can follow the trail, as it follows the old
Sequim sits in the rainshadow of the Olympic Mountains.
Moisture from the Pacific can't make it over the mountain peaks,
so instead, it falls in the rainforests on the west side of the
mountains. That leaves a "blue hole" over Sequim, making
it drier than many of its northwest neighbors. Seattle's KOMO-TV provides
proof on radar.
