A Hike to Marymere Falls

 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

How does a Squirrel steal?

When it's raining, and both dogs and cat are inside the house, then there's no one out there to bother him. This black squirrel was at the bird feeder for more than half an hour. He got the feeder to moved counter clockwise for several times, I guess to loosen things up, I think he's trying to get peanuts out of it.

He squeezed his head down for more

When he got tired of squeezing his head down or turning the feeder, he walked around it as if he was missing something from the other side.

Finally, as soon as he was done eating and left, the birds took over.


  1. Hi Lorena, thanks for dropping by my blog again, it's been a long time since I updated my blog. Nice shots, I bet you're using a fancy DSLR camera lol, I just moved to WA last 3 wks ago ;-)

  2. Hi I loved this post especially because I love squirrels. We have quite a few visit our garden and I always make sure there is food for them.
    Loved the pics as well.

    Have a good week-end.

  3. That squirrel is real smarty. Great shots you've captured.

  4. Thank you guys for comments. @ Sandonyx - I'm just using my old Sony alpha DSLR. If you ever go to Canada or be in this area of WA,come visit us. @ Yvonne, I did enjoy watching that squirrel. I don't see them much here though, I think it's because of my pets. @ Wanda, thank you.
