Sol Duc Falls, Olympic National Park, Washington

We left the Lake Crescent Lodge after our lunch (that above is the view from our table, always ask for the best water view!!!) & took a huge long hike to the "Sol Duc Falls".

Can you believe it is February? Hello, February. Welcome!!!

I was very excited to get to hike there because after the meal we had just had I felt I needed to work off a few pounds. Olive (the sheep) went with us, she is quite the conversation starter. I really found that when touring this park & as well in California when we got to see the Redwood trees, it is so tough to get a shot of these monstrous trees so it can give you the magnitude of how huge they are, they are just so so big. No joke you can be moved to tears, I mean the trees in Virginia are gorgeous, but to think how long it took a tree of this size to grow and live, it just mind blowing to me. AMAZING!!! 

Please check out this vlog from the waterfall hike. Beth ( :

Thanks for finding another beautiful waterfall (and a restaurant with a view) for us to enjoy.
So glad to see "Olive" again and to hear how emotional you get about the Redwoods...I did the same thing when I went to see the Blue Ridge all teary eyed!...:)JP

That's a good idea. Everything needs a little perspective. The conversation and potential laughs are a bonus.

Point Lookout State Park, Maryland & area lighthouses

Where we stayed: Point Lookout State Park, Maryland

Fort Lincoln, located within Point Lookout State Park. The only original part that is still at the location is the white barrier wall, all buildings are new, I guess the weather and winds are rough on fort. 

Here is a vlog from that day of the sunset view from the state park & a coastline view from Fort Lincoln. I can so see why the fort was so in needs of repair, the winds there are so violent.

I will say that Maryland has pretty tough lighthouses to get to up close, usually you can get better shots, instead of through fences and all that jazz, but at least you can sort of see them? RIGHT??! Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Enjoy these views. Plan a trip soon, such a gorgeous area of Maryland. Beth  ( :

Grayson Highlands State Park & VA Creep Trail, Virginia

I was going to do 2 separate posts for this camping trip but it was only very quick weekend trip back in July of this year. Enjoy the vlogs from that day. We had a ball, such a great trip!!
1st part was our hike on Wilburn Ridge. 2nd day was our bike trip on the VA Creeper Trail. I think one of the most uncomfortable parts of the trip is riding in a huge van with people you have not a clue who they are... you just know that you are going to all be riding the trail. They van you up the mtn & you bike back to Damascus, VA. It is a 17 mile bike trip. Very easy. Not too much work at all.
One of our favorite state parks to camp at in VA is "Grayson Highlands State Park". We love this area 'cause you have the opportunity to bike the "Virginia Creeper Trail". Yes, we did make another hike adventure to "Wilburn Ridge". If you click each those names it will take you to our previous trip back in 2015. We took this trip in July of this year. What we love ab…
