Below is a picture taken from a website of the hotel with the dining room on the right.
We took another walk that goes to one of the waterfalls in the area. We were able to walk from the campground, where the trail starts behind the general store. Another beautiful walk through one of the three temperate coniferous rain forests in the Western Hemisphere. Saw lots of mushrooms but didn't pick any as we have no mushroom knowledge of what is save to eat.
In less than mile, though mostly uphill, we arrived at the creek and waterfall.
We could have continued on another loop that ends up near the lodge but decided to go back the way we came. We got back a lot faster than going to the waterfall as mostly downhill, obviously.
Here are a couple of more views of the campground and the cabins that are the road that goes into the campground.
As I mentioned in the last post, this is the Valley of the Giants, with record heights of a number of trees. The largest Spruce Tree is right by the campground.
The picture below shows some scale to see how large the tree is.
Well, we had some nice days but the last part of the week we were there was cloudy and we got some rain.
Plus, more is expected in the next little while. One day we drove north a little and checked out a few campgrounds, one which we totally loved. It is right on the water and is first come first serve. We plan on going there on Monday, the 26th. As it is first come first serve, we will have a place through the Labor Day weekend. since we didn't make reservations, this is a good thing. Below a few more pictures of Lake Quinault, which we thoroughly enjoyed.
