I loved checking out the coast as well. We went to La Push and saw the sea stacks and the ocean in general. I decided I like beaches when they’re gray; there’s just something very peaceful and dramatic about them.

La Rocks (with La Sea Stacks in the background):

La Moss:

I may have gotten a little carried away with this mossy area…

Look – a fork in Forks! (actually Kathleen said it was probably a spoon, which makes more sense, but I thought a fork was funnier).

I wonder how far leaves travel sometimes.

La Seaweed:

La Flowers:

La Friends (this is pretty much the summary of the entire trip):

(hi, I’m a professional photographer, and I don’t know how to get faces in focus…)

This is where we ate lunch. It was actually pretty good, considering.

So big.

I can never remember what these are called (foxglove maybe? maybe not):

I actually have more photos from La Push but I’ll save them for another day.

We did a lot of cool things when we were up in Washington, but this was, without a doubt, my favorite of the trip. We made a small hike up to Sol Duc Falls in the Olympic National Park at the end of the day when the light was just perfect. The photos hardly do it justice. It was a beautiful, peaceful place.

I couldn’t get it in the picture, but this rainbow went all the way across to the other side:

Crispy has no legs:

Kathleen jumps across the raging waters:

Here we be:
