Oceanfront Lodging on Washington's Olympic Peninsula

We’re #27!  The Olympic Peninsula made the New York Times’ list of top travel destinations for 2011.  Of course we’ve known all along that this corner of heaven is a must-see, especially with breathtaking sights such as Hurricane Ridge, Cape Flattery, and the primordial Hoh Rain Forest.

But it’s always nice to be appreciated.

This week my daughter, Jill, and I did some hiking near Lake Crescent.  While about a third of the country was stuck in a deep freeze, we donned our sweatshirts and hiking boots and reveled in the emerald beauty surrounding us.  The “Moments in Time” trail is just two-thirds of a mile, but it’s a mini rain forest in itself, with neck-craning old-growth trees–some of which have been there since the turn of the millenium.  No, not 2000; the millenium before that.  And the trail to Marymere Falls, which cascades 90 feet over a vertical rock face, is a mile-and-a-half round trip–and so worth every step of it.
