Olympic NP: Sunset at Lake Crescent and Marymere Falls

Olympic NP: Sunset at Lake Crescent and Marymere Falls

My parents are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary this summer by taking a 6 week road trip across the US. Just them, a camper van and America’s best national parks. (It’s tight quarters, so I guess they still must like each other!)

I coordinated my Seattle trip to align with their Pacific Northwest leg, so after living the city life in Seattle, I met up with them for a few days of outdoorsy action in Olympic National Park.

We arrived with just enough time to set up camp, get some info at the Visitor’s Center, then go on an evening hike to the picturesque Marymere Falls and the Lake Crescent Lodge.

Here are my top pictures from the day:

Sunlight coming through trees on the trail to Marymere Falls. Magical!

 

A bridge gives me and Dad the perfect photo op.

 

More trees! Here, they’re super tall and skinny.

After a brief and pretty easy hike, we make it to Marymere Falls.

 

Found this black-tailed deer grazing on our way to the Lake Crescent Lodge.

A lakefront dinner at the Lake Crescent Lodge, right at sunset.

 

A pretty spectacular sunset on Lake Crescent.

 

Stay tuned for more pictures tomorrow of Day 2, where I explored the gorgeous coastal beaches and the Hoh Rainforest!
