Dosewallips Trail

Saturday morning Christopher and I woke up at 4:20 am to catch the 5:35am ferry to Kingston. We were meeting our party of 10 at the Hood Canal Bridge for a nice day hike on the Dosewallips trail head. One of the purposes of the hike was to experience the massive amount of rhododendrens throughout the trail. Unfortunately for us, they were not in bloom. We did see a handful of rhodies, but nothing to write home about. We did encounter an enormous amount of rhodie bushes on a loop near the ranger station, but still no blooms.

We did, however, enjoy great company and a beautiful hike in the Olympic National Forest. I saw 3 deer and one elk
. Why do guys like rocks so much? Paul pushed a rock over the ledge to watch it fall into the river and next thing you know all the guys are throwing rocks over the ledge watching them roll down the hill to make a big splash. That's Christopher with the biggest rock!
