Out there

Near Crescent Bay

Last week we traveled to Washington's Olympic Peninsula. It's hard to describe the otherworldliness of this place. Sweeping vistas of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Old-growth fairy forests of towering cedar, hemlock and fir. Wild flowers, green mosses and lacy ferns. Coastal tide pools revealing miniature worlds of marine life. Hidden waterfalls and secret coves. Come see..

Ships on the water...

A ship travels along the Strait of Juan de Fuca


Tall trees..


Sentinels


In a coastal forest...


A fern path
Prehistoric plants


Birds on the water...


Sea gulls
A bald eagle

A waterfall...

Water travels to the sea


Wildflowers...


A wild daisy
A wild rose

Intertidal gardens


Sea plants...
...and creatures


A good way to start the summer.
