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

Highest Point in the Philippine Highway System

One of the highlights of our trip to the North of Philippines was seeing the Highest Point in the Philippine Highway System. It is located in the Province of Benguet, town of Atok. From Baguio City, on the Halsema highway, it's only 29 miles or 46 kilometers, but to get there, it took us at least 2 hours due to the roads are not only narrow but also sharp curves, steep cliffs, and traffic were also bad in some part. Not use to driving that kind of roads, so we took our time to be safe. After all, better safe than sorry. The climate was a little bit colder than I expected. It was probably from 60 to 70 degrees fahrenheit, which my husband loves it!
