    Safeway/Thriftway: you always need more

    We came to Olympic National Park stocked up on food and drink but no matter how much you bring with you, you always need something. Olympic National Park's gateway city of Port Angeles was a fair sized town with many supermarkets. We found Safeway on Highway 101 to carry everything we were looking for as well as being a pleasant place to shop. When coming out of the Hoh Rain Forest area after a backcountry trip, the Thriftway in Forks served us well.

    What to buy: We used the Safeway for some pre-cooked items when the weather got so nasty we just did not want to cook. Some fried chicken hit the spot and the store even has a small eat-in section, perfect for campers trying to escape a wet campsite.

    Thriftway provided us the perfect pit-stop between treks. After completing a four day/three night backpacking trip to the Blue Glacier, we stopped in here and bought two baguettes, some salami and half gallon of Tillamook ice cream. This gave us all the energy we needed to grab a shower, drive over to the Sol Duc area of the park and start a three day/two night trip up to the Seven Lakes Basin.

    What to pay: The stores seemed fairly priced considering they have little competition and a captive tourist audience.
