Usually we go to the mountain a bit later in the year, after most of the snow melt, so we’ve never seen Narada Falls so vigorous. This year the snow melt was accelerated by the record breaking hot weather in our area. The water really was everywhere, even in the air! It was hard to photograph the falls this year without getting my lens covered with water.
For Wordless Wednesday and Nancy Merrill’s Photo a Week: Changing Season
The cascade mountains are well named. Most of these photos were taken in Mount Rainier National Park.
This Journey wasn’t to Disneyland. A few weeks ago we went to the Olympic National Park and took a short walk up to Marymere Falls.
The hike (it’s really just a walk, there is a short steep section but it has stairs) starts at the Storm King Ranger Station on the shore of Lake Crescent. It doesn’t have the awe inspiring grandeur that is present in other parts of the park but is has a magical charm.
