The Hoh Rainforest section of the Olympia National Park was very interesting, but it was a little disappointing because we expected wet. June and July are the driest months there and so far May has been very dry too. The trees are huge and covered in moss and would have been befitting of a rainforest if only they had been dripping moisture.
The Marrymere Falls were at the end of a half mile easy hike and a 1/4 mile straight up hike, but worth every effort expanded to get there. As a bonus we got a home baked chocolate cookie at the upper look out. There were a group of 4th graders touring the falls and Donna and I arrived just as they were taking a break. One of the chaperons was handing out cookies and they had a couple left over and offered them to us. When we asked where they were from they told us from down south near Tacoma. When we told them we were from down south in South Carolina they seemed more impressed with that, then the stupid ol’ waterfall.
At this point we still had a long drive to get back so we bypassed a couple of other interesting things to do on the Olympic peninsula and headed back to Seattle. It was Friday afternoon, so with the traffic and the construction delays it took us a lot longer to get to the hotel than we thought. Oh well, it is a late night, but tomorrow it will all work out because with the time change we will lose even more time, huh. I’ve stopped making sense so it must be time to quit….
