Quilcene River in Winter

There is a short loop trail that runs from the Falls View Campground in the Olympic National Forest. It’s a nice walk through the woods, but there isn’t a lot of access to the river bank. This is one of the few. A nice winter walk … especially when the river is running low and not all angry like.

Washout Bypass Trail

The Elwha River is one of the type examples of a river being returned to a wild state by the removal of dams. The river has shown it’s wild state by washing out the road in a couple places. To provide trail access there is a new trail that runs higher up along the hill. We went to take a look at the Elwha when it was in flood stage on January 4th. Quite impressive. The photo below shows one of the washouts (this is only one branch of the free flowing river).

I was going to carry other cameras, but with an expected 6+ mile hike, I opted for light weight.

Clam Cannery, waterfront view

DSC_0907

This is the Clam Cannery building (1885) in Port Townsend. I was really enjoying a mid-winter sunny day and as the sun was starting to set the light really brought out the textures in the face of the building.

Waterfront Building

I was attracted to the way that the light of the sunset was reflecting off the wood of the building which was reflected off the water. Then a seagull flew in and I got a shot off just before it landed in the water.
