Your Sunday Boring Postcard from Michael5000


Shelton is known as the "Gateway to the Olympics."  Located at the southwestern end of the Hood Canal, Shelton is deeply rooted in the forest industry evident by the large logging operations that began in the mid 1850's.  The oyster industry also plays a part as Shelton also hosts Oyster Fest each year in October.

Wow, certainly a surprise to find Shelton here! Have attended Oysterfest three times (performing with our all-adult marching band). You haven't lived until you've seen the flying knives of the Oyster Shucking Championships!
