A Hike to Marymere Falls

Image
 After our Trip to Hurricane Ridge Olympic National Park , we drove to Lake Crescent Olympic National Park  and parked our vehicle in the parking lot close to Storm King Ranger Station. There were a lot of vehicles in the parking lot but we had no problem finding a parking spot.  The trail to Marymere Falls starts just past the Storm King Ranger Station. A nice 1.5 mile round trip nature trail, mostly flat until the Falls Creek log bridge, then the trail gradually ascends 200 feet in elevation. It was an easy and beautiful hike but my shoes and pants got muddy. It also got crowded up there but it's worth the hike and a must see when visiting the Olympic National Park. The view of Marymere Falls and the narrow loop trail Marymere Falls Nature Trail 1.5 Miles Round Trip No Pets, Weapons, or Vehicles The tunnel under the road The passage to the other side. It's so nice that the hikers going to Marymere falls don't have to deal with busy highway US-101 I love the new growth on

Welcome To Alaska

Image
February 14th 2010, my mother arrived in Anchorage Alaska for the first time. Joel drove 6 hours to Anchorage and I drove 5 hours back to Fairbanks. I just have to mentioned that..:) anyway, my mom's trip was good, she got here safe and sound. Even though the trip was long, she enjoyed it. Manila to Taipei was 2hrs something, Taipei to Anchorage was 9hrs straight flight and Anchorage to Fairbanks 5hrs drive. We got home and she still had the energy to entertained the family and friends who came to welcome her here in Fairbanks.. She's enjoying her stay so far but she's getting bored. I need to find her something to do to keep her busy. I'm excited for the Summer to come, I want to show her how to catch fish and how the gardening works up here.   On our way to Fairbanks

This is so unexpected and so thoughtful, it's not my birthday nor any occasions to receive a card. Marty didn't know what I'm going through today and to receive this card from her, it's just wonderful. Such a blessing.. Thank you Marty.

Thanks
