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 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

Ferns and Wildflowers

Moss, Wildflowers, Ferns are just so wonderful
I love the new growth on the trees, the moss on the branches, the little forget-me-not flowers and the ferns.
