Lake Crescent

 

Lake Crescent. The image with the kayaks near the lake is from the opposite side of the lake where we stayed. The other three images are from the shore of the lake where ew stayed one night. Our grandson, Elliott, is featured in one of those photos.

Very scenic area. The clouds would pass over the lake as you see. I think I have one more image of the cloud formations that I will post next time.

 

Photo credits: Ian King took the three images on his iPhone 5 and my photo has my watermark.

Ferns

The tallest ferns I have ever seen were in the Hoh Rainforest. Groves of 6′-8′ ferns, as a couple of these images show, are just amazing to see.

On to Lake Crescent in the next post ( I think).

Elliott’s Post

These images were either taken by our Brooklyn grandson, Elliott, or feature him. The location is still the Hoh River. It was such a nice day. This side of the Olympic Mountains has nearly 100″ of rain annually. Having a sunny, clear day is really a treat.

docked in Seattle,

still waiting for a screen door as

the Freight Company, after waiting 6 weeks for the door, lost the shipment

so I’m now waiting for a replacement door, gratis of course, from the factory in Indiana.

Hoh Rainforest

Moss dripping from large trees and huge ferns on the forest floor. There was a nice hike from the Rangers Station to the Hoh River. We arrived in the mid morning time frame and there was already quite a few people parked and hiking the trail; people from all over the world. As we left around 2:00pm there was a lineup of vehicles, at least 60, waiting to get into the park.

It’s a pretty amazing place and well worth your time to drive 16 miles from Highway 101, on a very winding road, to reach the this National Park.

Images of the Hoh River in the next installment.

More from the Beach at Kalaloch

The tide was out so we were able to see some interesting things walking the beach. Felt like a private beach as there were hardly anyone else in sight ( as you can see).

More from the Olympic Peninsula to follow.

Adventure#2: Olympic Peninsula

Our first night out we spent at Kalaloch Beach. Our site was within a short walking distance from the Pacific Ocean. Basically “roughing it” as we had no hookups. Pretty rustic, but secluded. Our Brooklyn grandson, Elliott, above hanging out with grandma on the beach. The steps down to the beach are behind that wall of large driftwood.

Was a fun night.

Adventure#2 to be continued.
