After a sorta longish, unintentional hiatus from vacation posts, I’m back.
This post has been in the works for about a week and a half now. I’m going to hurry up and get it posted, which just means not a lot of commentary, just images. Hopefully I’ll get back into some sort of posting routine soon!
My last post showcased the Hoh Rain Forest. From there, we went to Rialto Beach. Because I absolutely love rocky beaches, this is one of the stops I was most looking forward to.
Rialto Beach is a place of dramatic contrasts. Everything there feels extreme. Let me know if you think I captured the feel of the place well.
As you probably surmised from the pictures, it was quite windy on the beach. And that wasn’t even a stormy day. I’d love to experience Rialto during a storm. From a safe distance, of course. Imagine the power of the surf to move driftwood of that size.
So that ends Installment 10.
Rialto Beach was our last stop at Olympic National Park.
Next up… a brief stop in Canada and more drama at Deception Pass.
