August 17, 2012...

Today we traveled from Port Angeles to the beaches on the west coast.  This was new territory for us, we had not been this way before.
But first, I wanted to share the sunrise with you.  We were lucky to be up early enough to catch it.
This is the pulp mill on the west edge of Port Angeles.  Freighters pull in here to load the logs that are stacked everywhere.
This is the Madison Creek Falls, just 150 feet from the parking lot and an easy walk on a smooth path, wheelchair accessible.  We had it all to ourselves this morning and it was overcast, just perfect.

For you Twilight fans, I understand the movies take place on the Olympic Peninsula.  My bad, I haven't seen any of the movies.

We finally got back to the hotel about 4:00, just in time for another lovely meal at the Downrigger.  All in all, a really great day.
