We caught an early 6AM flight Friday morning from LAX (the flight ended up being delayed for an hour and a half) and arrived in Seattle at 10:30AM. After picking up our rental car, lunch, water and fuel we headed out to the Ozette Ranger Station. We arrived at Ozette Ranger Station around 4PM only to realize this is a seasonal ranger station and our backpacking permits should have been picked up at the Wilderness Information Center (WIC) in Port Angeles! After reading over the online permit again, I realized it was my oversight. We were relieved to hear from the maintenance worker that the ranger will be coming back to the station later in the afternoon. The ranger finally pulled in at 6PM and was able to sort out our back country permit and lend us a couple bear canisters.
