Went for a 100 mile ride today, back into the same area. Here's that little lake again. Photo taken about 5 pm so the lighting was pretty good. HDR photo using Pro HDR on my iPhone 4S.

The weather was looking nice last Friday and Saturday, so I took a day off work and headed to the Olympic Peninsula.


The fog was just lifting from the Deception Pass bridge.


"Ramming speed, captain!"


This is where the Elwha Dam used to be. In less than a year salmon have started swimming upriver where none have for over 100 years!


Did someone say SILT? Several million cubic yards have already washed down river and there's more to go.


Lake Crescent at the Lodge. What a great way to spend a weekend. And yes, that's all my luggage - I've finally learned to travel light!


Even the rain forest looks beautiful when the sun shines!


The Straits of Juan de Fuca, with Vancouver Island in the background.


I need to do this more often...

350 miles, great roads (forgot how insane Hwy 112 is!), great food in PA, and only a blown fork seal. A few weeks for repairs and time to do it again.

Tom

That looks like a great way to spend a weekend, Tom. Thanks for taking us along for the ride.

Nice Tom!

I was just learning about the Elwha Dam in my F&W Conservation class at Oregon State. Very cool to hear that salmon are going upriver again!

I love the photos here, but is it necessary to quote back a big, long post full of photos only to add ONE line of text?

I agree. If I really want to quote something and include one of the original photos, I remove the others that I don't care about.
