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

Yesterday and Today

It was such a big change and I was amazed on how much the snow milted and gone for just over night. The first picture was taken yesterday (Thanksgiving Day) and I'm sure there was at least two inches of snow in the ground. But today (Black Friday)  this morning when I looked outside, the snow was gone, gone with the wind. Anyways, I found it interesting so I thought I'd share it with you guys. If you look closer on the first picture, you'll see several birds are in that tree and the squirrel eating.

  3. Yes, I was surprised how quickly the snow left! My little girls were very disappointed to see their snowman mostly melted yesterday morning... but I managed to convince them that that's why snowmen are so special, because they don't last very long!
