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!!!

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 Mts...got all teary eyed!...:)JP

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