I think I may be in love with Washington...
We live just an hour and a half from Olympic National Park, about an hour from Rainier National Park, an hour to an hour and a half from Mt. St. Helens - the list goes on. Almost too many choices. Almost. So today we decided to make the quick trip to Staircase, at the southeastern edge of Olympic National Park.
We walked about a mile down the Skokomish Falls Loop Trail which followed the river. It was much like the walk in Idaho we did last weekend - just what the doctor ordered. Below is the trail we followed.
Unfortunately, the bridge at the far point over the river was washed out, so we turned around and enjoyed the walk back.
Ian and Leah had a good time. I think they were as entranced with the river as I was.
Finally, on the way out headed to a late lunch, we passed this small pullout of Lake Cushman, about 10 minutes outside of Hoodsport.
We had a nice day, hopefully everyone out there has too. Cheers!
