Yesterday I took a respite from bed & breakfast chores and hiked the Spruce Railroad trail, which skirts Lake Crescent. What a beautiful September day!
The trail, which is about 17 miles west of Port Angeles, meanders around the lake about 4 miles each way. So I hiked half of it for a pleasant 4-mile round trip. The trail is well maintained. The path rises and falls in gentle slopes and valleys, almost always with the sparkling glacier-fed lake within view.
Spruce Railroad is the trail less traveled, and I had the whole trail to myself. It was a most peaceful and beautiful way to recharge the spirit. ~Bonnie
