we took a quick trip over the weekend.
and i've come back SO refreshed, i have convinced myself to blog something. weird.
we visited the southeast corner of the Olympic National Park + Forest. we rented a little cabin on Lake Cushman. it rained quite a bit and the lovely, snowy peeks were blanketed in fog. but we managed to kayak and hike. and of course i forgot my camera -- so these are all phone photos.
we attempted to summit Mt Rose. it was a doozy. imagine walking up flight after flight of stairs -- 3500' gain in 3 miles. about a half mile to the summit we hit snow and had to turn back. i was ill prepared for the slipperiness.
we enjoyed lots of time in our kayaks. the water was the clearest i've paddled and some of the giant, submerged old-growth stumps were larger than the boats.
when we had sun, the husband caught, cleaned and grilled some lovely trout for us.
i did well - linens, jars, a vintage pendleton for $4 and a stack of amazing photos from the 50's + 60's.
