The Finale

10Sep11

Day Ten The last day had come. I was sad but tired too and ready to come home. In the morning we went to Salt Creek tidal area at low tide. Walking on the slippery and jagged rocks was an interesting experience. The starfish, urchins and anemones took the day off from posing and the […]


Day Nine Our trip was nearing to an end and this would be our last full day on The Peninsula. Tomorrow we would head back to our hotel in Olympia to be able to catch an early flight the next morning. Wanting to visit some of the other beaches, we traveled back to Forks in […]


Day Eight I left Brent sleeping at the hotel and headed to Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park to see and photograph the sunrise. I wasn’t sure of the position of the sun and where it would fall on the ridge. I saw a few other photographers at an overlook but continued up the ridge, […]


Day Seven Our new home in Port Angeles, on Washington’s peninsula was a few hours away so we left Olympia early. We traveled on the western side of the Puget Sound and up along Hood Canal.

Day Four On our second full day in the Palouse I let Brent sleep in … his choice really. I got up at 4-something, turned on the coffee maker … already set up with Starbuck’s French Roast brought from home. It’s not that I could have been without coffee anywhere in Washington State. There are […]


Day Three Up before sunrise we drove to Steptoe Butte State Park & National Landmark which is the highest point in the area at 3,612 feet. It rises about 1,000 feet above the surrounding countryside which is on an elevated plateau. Sunrise was at 5:36 am and we arrived early, in time for the deep […]

Day Two The next day it was on to the Palouse by way of Mount Rainier National Park, east of Seattle. If it were a clear day we would have been able to see the mountain as we approached but some light rain and clouds kept it concealed until later. We figured the Palouse to […]
