I had to get some people in the pictures sometime

Trillium are blooming along the trail to the falls


Today’s trek was to Sol duc Falls, named from Indian words meaning “magic waters.” I went alone because Sue is still sick and not up to walking without hacking a lung up. The trailhead for the falls trail is about 2 miles up the road from the campground. The actual walk to the falls is short (< a mile) and relatively easy through a thick rain forest. Trillium, wild violets, and some other wildflowers that I couldn’t identify were blooming along the trail. The falls flows some 100 ft. down the hillside to the Sol duc River in a number of cascades. The river flows through this portion of the National Park through a valley on the way to the Pacific Ocean. We’ll be exploring the Hot RainForest and Pacific Coast over the week end. Stay tuned.
