WATERFALLS, CREEKS, DEEP FORESTS, GLACIAL LAKES and FAMILY
Marymere Falls was recommended as a fun walk by my cousin's wife Marcia. We were looking for an easy afternoon adventure so we drove over to beautiful Lake Crescent and began the hike.
After the falls we took a walk along Barnes creek for a picnic lunch among the stones and sounds of babbling brook.
We were ready for more sightseeing so we took some country roads over to the Salt Creek Recreation Area on the Strait de Juan de Fuca.
The tide was coming in so the tide pools were filling up, not a lot to see but fun to explore.
Shelly's sister Andrea, her husband Jeff and son Jack with Emily were in the area traveling and we were able to get together for a hike and some quality time on the trail.
We hiked up to Lake Angeles on a steep trail through the deep woods of the Olympic Peninsula. The lake is the result of a melting glacier, cold and clear. This didn't stop Jack or Emily from taking a swim.
After our hike we returned to Port Angeles for dinner and goodbyes. Andrea and her family moved on to Orcas Island and we move deeper into the peninsula.
