The Olympic Peninsula, Washington Our campground was in Port Angeles. The day we arrived it rained constantly all day. Surprise, surprise! We took a day trip to the Hoh Rain Forrest Very dense forrest and very green; moss grows on anything that doesn’t move! Thats a boy, a little bigger than Reeve, standing by that huge tree! So big I couldn’t get back far enough to get it all in even with my wide angle lens! This is the best I could do to get an entire redwood tree in the shot! They’re enormous ! Ferns growing out of the root ball of a blown over tree. We went on a short hike on this trail; there was word of an Elk sighted close by. And lo and behold, there he was, just grazing! He could care less that people were within 20 feet of him! On another day trip we went to Hurricane Ridge. Beautiful drive up there. We spotted this Marmot near the Visitor’s Center. While exploring one day we discovered this: an old WWII bunker, part of Camp Hayden! The gun here had a 45′ barrel and shot 16″ projectiles. The one on the left is almost as tall as me and weighs over a ton and the gun could shoot them over 28 miles! Camp Hayden was part of the joint American/Canadian Defense System to protect these harbors. We found this cute lodge up there too; The Log Cabin Lodge. It was a bit overcast and drizzly but it adds to the picture I think. Their lobby greeter! Off the side of the road was this small rapids. At the right time of year Salmon are going up stream to spawn. Through the VERY clear water you can see a few Salmon here.
