|Anyone need to phone home?
Rather than lots of text, I thought I'd mostly share some pics of our trip and try to show you why this is one of my favorite places on earth.
|Driving along the north side of the peninsula, you skirt along Lake Crescent
|Reflections of the Sol Duc Rain Forest
|Look how open the understory is! Old growth forest here.
|Breaking out of the forest to skirt along the river's edge
|I love the swirls in this snag
|a view of Ruby Beach from the cliffs
|Lake Quinalt Lodge, from the bottom of the lawn at the edge of the lake
|A perfect place to curl up wit a book or play games
|See what I mean?
|Some rain forest natives - Oxallis (looks like shamrocks to me!)
