olympic national park trail beach washington beach 1-DeNoiseAI-clear

Olympic National Park (Washington – September 2021)

Today’s photo was taken on the trail heading to the creatively named “Beach 1” in Olympic National Park. Olympic National Park is a bit odd in that includes not only the mountain ranges that include Mt. Olympus at about 8,000 feet but also a stretch of beaches far to the west (with an area of uninteresting towns and land in between not included in the park).

Happy birthday, Cesar Soto!

Portland Japanese Flat Garden



I’ve visited Portland at least a couple dozen times over the past 25 years. I thought I had been to the Portland Japanese Garden about 20 years ago. We went for a visit this past weekend, and I realized it was the Seattle Japanese Garden that I went to long ago so this was a first. There was a pretty good downpour just before (and just after) taking this photo (which is a photomerge of 22 photos) so not many people around.
