Sol Duc

A couple of weeks ago on a sun filled Saturday afternoon I enjoyed a hike to Sol Duc Falls in ONP. The trail was fairly easy, washed out in a few places and there were some fallen trees in others. The easiest and shortest trail was of course in the best shape with the Lovers Lane Loop in a little less than great shape from the winter storms we had out here this past year. It was a good hike though. Here are some photos from the day.

Its been a month

A busy month. I've been given the chance to learn some new things at work and so my work schedule has changed a bit and lets just say I'm WAY out of practice to work full time hours. I've gone soft! The new schedule is giving me the last week of the month off. I am enjoying the idea of a week off every month this summer. It should be a real treat.

I'm managed to get out hike at Sol Duc in ONP, visit the Seattle Art Museum, and I've made a new tradition of heading down to the water for sunset as often as possible. Here are some pictures to share with you from some of my recent adventures.

Sunset at Salt Creek - a local county park

Sunset at Hurricane Ridge - We hosted some gals from the Methodist Church in Tucker, GA and timed a visit to the Ridge on their last night here perfectly. They got to enjoy the sunset and a snowball fight in June. The weather was really warm even in the mountains that night. It was perfect!

Sunset this last Tuesday night at Ediz Hook. It was really pretty!

Last night at Ediz Hook - I got there a few minutes earlier than I normally do and I was able to get a few shots of Hurricane Ridge. Can't believe how much snow has already melted off the mountains. Our weather this June hasn't been normal. It has been warm and sunny instead of cool and rainy. I don't mind though.

Last night is was quite windy and so the waves were crashing out on the Hook. It was a wonderful sunset color wise and also with the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks.
