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.
