Hurricane Ridge, Crescent Lake, and the nearby waterfalls
Last Thursday, Oscar and I went back to Port Angeles to see the gorgeous glacier topped peaks at Hurricane Ridge.
On our way back down, there was an extremely curious, friendly deer. She came within two feet of our car, and when we started driving away, she followed us. It was awesome to be so close to her.
This is the small trail to one of the lookouts on the way back down from Hurricane Ridge.
And here's the pretty lookout. It would have been better if there hadn't been so much fog.
I like how Oscar's bald head looks like it's disappearing into the clouds.
There was also a really pretty view of Port Angeles and the coast from this viewpoint.
Next we went to see the small Madison Creek waterfall. It would have normally been $15 to park here, but the fee was free for the week. We're glad we didn't have to pay. It would have been a disappointing waterfall for $15.
I snapped this cute shot of Oscar inside an enormous tree stump.
At this point our camera said low battery, so we don't have as many shots of beautiful Crescent Lake and Marymere Falls.
This was our last picture of me on the trail.
The waterfall was quite pretty. I pulled this shot off the internet.
For some reason our camera wouldn't let us take pictures when the battery was that dead, but it did let us take a little video of the falls.
