Olympic Peninsula East: Not as spectacular as the Olympic mountains and west coast of the peninsula, the eastern side has its own special character.
Highway 101 leads south along the Hood Canal from Port Townsed. Arising near Mt. Washington, the Hamma Hamma River, named for a Twana first nation village,  empties into the hood canal. Homes along the Hamma Hamma estuary may or may not be descendants of the Twana village for which the river was named. Cedar shakes and a mossy roof give the quaint Country Store and Motel a sense of having long been a part the west coast forest. A not atypical property along the highway with the family toys awaiting spring and summer. Sawmill along the Chehalis River, near Montesano. Incorporated in 1890, the town of South Bend on the Willapa  River is known for its oysters and scenery, and seems to capture the essence of the western Washington small city. Crossing an inlet of Willapa Bay, Bay Center can be seen in the distance beyond the point. A dairy farm sits just above tidal influence of Willapa Bay as Hwy 101 climbs back to the uplands.
