Went to one of my favorite places in the world last weekend "Olympic National Park" en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olympic_National_Park which happens to be 3 hours from home, lucky me. I don't know many other parks that have a temperate rain forest, a beautiful rugged coast line and majestic mountains peaks all in one spot. I could go on and on about my love for this park. You could spend a month here exploring the back country since hardly any of it is accessible by car.
My photo excursion weekend started out alone. Just my can of bear spray and i at one with nature in the deep, dark woods. My first stop was at Sol Duc Falls. As i was returning on the trail back from the falls i unexpectedly run into one of my favorite Flickr friends from Portland Greg O What a surprise since he lives a good 5 hours away from this location.. Explored a few other areas and showed him the coast since he has never been to the n wa coast before. Greg has more of the day recap here if interested. And if you ever get the chance to shoot with Greg you should, he's talented and tons of fun.
Alone again the following day, i decided to go back into the woods to the Hoh Rain Forest en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hoh_Rainforest I wish I could have captured some of these mossy trees like i saw them. The light was not good but enjoyed my hours there. Met and hiked with "future" Flickrite photog visiting from Aspen, Colorado. Went to another waterfall and the famous Ruby Beach, those shots are to come sometime in 2010 :) All in all, a nature filled weekend with some talented photogs.
This is a very typical pacific nw scene with all the moss. Nothing original here but very common this time of year.
Look forward to catching up and saying hi to you all soon. If i haven't visited your stream yet i will after the long weekend :) Thanks again for stopping by. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend and Memorial Day :)
