Quinault, WA to Ft Stephens, OR
As luck would have it I have net tonight and some power!! You have to count your blessings right? So I spent my birthday overlooking the Pacific from my little cabin on the ridge at the Kalaloch lodge, it's only a 2 star but it was fine by me...had nice hot shower and fluffy towels and the bed was okay not great but okay you are paying for the view when you stay there. Casey and I did the tide pool thing again in the morning took a beachy walk found this weird creature...maybe in the barnacle family? I really was not able to find out what it is!
The rocks just offshore were covered with Brown Pelicans...
off we went South on 101.
On the map of the Oly. NP I saw some large trees listed so I went to take a look...One is the "Largest Western Cedar" in the world?
See yhe man on the lower left side?....The photos were hard to tell it was so big so I made a video...even that doesnt really...but its kinda neat...
then I went to see the worlds Largest Spruce Tree while my laundry went through its cycles in the Quinault General Store and Laundry.
So you have to decide for yourself I have not seen every tree so I can't say for sure. I met this daughter in the laundry they said they hardly ever get out of Quinault and I can see why its one block long, right by a beautiful reservoir and they are quite content. For fun he makes makes and paints lead miniature soldiers! He showed me a few and they were quite detailed..
