In the Woods

We spent a really great weekend at Naturebridge, at Lake Crescent in Olympic National Park, five and a half hours north of home. A hundred wedding guests stayed in lovely cabins in the achingly beautiful and ancient forest, we ate delicious meals in the camp dining hall and hiked in the woods, two good friends said their vows under a huge old tree on the lakeshore, and then we boogied until 1 AM. In one of the rainiest parts of the country, their wedding day was cloudless and warm. Coolest of all, by using this camp as their wedding venue, the newlyweds sponsored numerous kids to come to this camp for an introduction to nature and environmental education. What a cool way to begin your marriage, by encouraging the children of the northwest to protect our planet.

We stopped to wander around Port Angeles on our way. You can't really see it, but Vancouver Island, BC, is behind us. 

Scenery at the Elwha River. This could be in New Zealand!

Clear, clear water.
