It’s about time I got back on my blogging train. Many exciting things have been happening around here, which has taken my attention elsewhere. (more on that later)
I’ve been trying to get out and play as much as possible lately. This last weekend’s adventure with Mary Jo Photography brought us to Olympic National Park, Staircase Trail.
If you are wanting to see lush, green moss and some of the tallest trees in the west, GO. If you are from the Northwest and haven’t made it to the Olympic Peninsula, GO! If this is your backyard like it is mine, WE ARE SO LUCKY.
The Staircase Loop Trail is a little over 2 miles, which easily turns into 5 miles for us with all of our wanderings. It is fairly easy and there were many families out enjoying the cold, crisp day.
We took to the trail with cameras and tripods in hand. One of the things I love about adventuring with Mary, is the no rush vibe we get when we see a spot that HAS to be photographed. These outings are a perfect opportunity to hone our skills with no pressure and the ability to really set up a shot.
Quiet. Calm. Green. Fresh.I love the Pacific Northwest.
Here are a few shots from a recent little walk up to Marymere Falls on a warm summer evening. This is an easy hike with easy access off of Highway 101 at Crescent Lake. Park near the ranger station and follow the trail. You will be greeted by towering trees, moss as far as the eye can see, and that awesome hallow trail sound with every step.
