The Hurricane Ridge Visitors Center is exactly that, a visitors' center. It offers a lot of merchandise; which is overpriced, and not worth buying!

The visitor's center was undergoing renovation when we visited, so there was not much there. Temporary facilities were in a metal building across the road. Restrooms had limited capacity, making for waiting lines at times.

Even though it was a drizzling day we headed out to see Hurricane Ridge to see what we may see. The drive up to the ridge had many pull over spots for gorgeous photo ops .

We loved it. It was beautiful and loaded with great stuff to buy. We bought T-shirts. They even had a really nice food/snack bar but it was closed. Don't know why they would close it in the middle of the height of the season. Eh.
