A Day Trip to the Olympic Foothills

I'm so happy that many of you enjoyed seeing the Halloween village! Thank you so much for the comments and thanks to those of you who just look! Today's blog is about a little trip we took on Thurs.  The weather lady said that it would be our last sunny day for awhile so we decided to go for a hike in an area that is about 45 minutes from home.  It's not too strenuous and we get a nice bit of exercise! You can tell from the photos that we don't have the beautiful colors that you see in the East, but all the evergreens will still be beautiful when the leaves are all gone.  I hope you enjoy the walk!

 I couldn't resist this little pumpkin patch!

Just off the Hood Canal Bridge!

We saw several small water falls.

 You know you're in the NW when the trees are covered with Moss!

 A typical big leaf maple.

 Another you know you're in the NW when you can't travel too far without seeing espresso!( Thank Goodness)

  I hope you are all having a wonderful week-end.  We will be thinking of you in the NE as this storm gets closer!


  1. You take the best pictures Barb. Looks like you had a lovely day.
