Hwy 101 hugging the edge of the lake and lets just say it now...Should you visit the park please come very close to obeying the speed limit. This is a national park so that means a speeding ticket is a federal offense. In other words if you want to ignore it thinking, "Oh that was all the way up there in Washington and I am down here Florida." Think again. You'll get a visit from the US Marshalls and you'll have a federal warrant for your arrest. So deal with a ticket should you get one. Or just be really crazy and just drive the speed limit through the park. I know what an outlandish idea!
I was so excited to see this goose! This is the same goose from last year that I joked should not be called a Canadian Goose when it is clearly an American Goose. Nesting here on a log in the lake.
Lake Crescent has an amazing color and clarity that is quite difficult to capture in photos. The log jetting out allowed for me to do that. It is almost blue you see much further south in the sea of the Caribbean.
Here we are at the destination of the day...Ruby Beach.
I wish I could put on here the sound of the waves crashing on the beach and around the sea stacks.
It is spring and so everything is in bloom.
