My Year In Pictures August Week 5

Keeping with the style from my last post this final August catch-up will also be a simple combination of location notes and lots of pretty pictures.  If anyone wonders why we love living in the Pacific Northwest this series of Olympic National Park photos really illustrates the best of what we enjoy on a daily basis.  It’s not all rain and fog around here. 🙂  In a typical year this part of the state is a little cooler and wetter than where we live along Puget Sound but this year has been anything but typical and we managed to visit during some of the hottest days ever recorded in the park.  These seven photos cover one full Saturday beginning on Ruby Beach followed by a steamy hike through the Hoh Rainforest and a visit to the Hoh River for some cool mountain water.  We had dinner in La Push before starting our final hike out to Second Beach hoping to catch the sunset.  More from the beach next week…

I’ve been keeping up with my daily share project on Instagram and Facebook so If you’d like to learn more about any of the images but you don’t follow me on these accounts please feel free to click here for IG and here for FB or select a photo from the Instagram previews in my sidebar.  You don’t need an account at either place to view my photos, everyone’s welcome.🙂

  1. I can see why you love living there – well I knew this already – but it is so nice to appreciate where you live. I like Virginia for th most part, but prefer the drier CO air. the steamy hike looks cool and those nets and basket things are pretty awesome – that was my favorite photo this week.



    1. Oh yikes but at least you could still wade and not have to swim! I can see how easy it would be to get caught in the tide changes though. The beach is so flat it’s not very obvious when it really starts to come in.


    1. Thanks, Lisa! My favorite thing about this virtual community is the ability to share and enjoy the views from around the world. It’s great to hear you appreciate my ocean shots and I always look forward to seeing yours as well!
