Olympic Adventure: Lake Crescent

Image
Fifth stop: Lake Crescent. Our camping spot for the night was just a few minutes from the lodge, on the banks of Lake Crescent.

Olympic Adventure: Ruby Beach

Image
Fourth stop: Ruby Beach (plus a little of another minor beach right before Ruby)

Olympic Adventure: Lake Quinault

Image
Third stop: Lake Quinault. Our stop here was brief, but super cute! Would love to spend a whole weekend in this lodge.

Olympic Adventure: Seabrook

Image
Second stop: Seabrook. This oddly Stepford-esq, but charming "Sunset Idea Town" was neat to drive around and check out different styles of garages.

Olympic Adventure: Copalis Beach

Image
Cary and I threw caution to the wind this weekend, and headed out on a 3 day road-trip.. without taking any time off work. CRAAZYY. It was lots of driving, but super fun. First stop: Copalis Beach.

Mom at Jetty Island

Image
Mom got to try out the luxurious nimble thimble on a short jaunt to Jetty Island. We got lucky and experienced calm waters, sunny weather, and a seal sighting.

Mom at Hidden Lake

Image
We didn't make it all the way to the hidden lake, but still probably one of the best hikes we've been on this year. The whole first half was foggy, misty, and mysterious... but after a brief rest (blueberry picking break!) the clouds parted, revealing the whole valley as we hiked back.

Mom at Diablo Lake

Mom's first experience with the North Cascades, I think she liked it :)
