The hike I had planned for today didn’t work because the road was closed, so we came back and did the Spruce Railroad Trail which was 8 miles round trip of mostly flat former railroad beds.
A view of the Log Cabin Resort, where we stayed. You can’t see our cabin, it’s hidden behind some trees. Next time I’d like to stay in one of the chalets.
Lake Crescent was a brilliant blue.
Devils Punchbowl. On hot days, people jump from the bridge. It was not a hot day.
We’ve reached the other end, now it’s four miles back.
One of the points we could have used to enter Lake Crescent if it was warmer.
Boat ramp. They had various things to rent, including stand up paddle boards. We did not partake.

These pictures are awesome! I love how blue the water is. The mountains and clouds make my heart happy.
That water was amazing. It was my favorite part.
It is so beautiful there. I remember the first time we were back in PNW after living in VA and its beauty just hit us in a different way. Too bad you couldn’t swim. We will go swimming when you visit next (well I likely will not swim – but we will go nonetheless – I am putting it on the list).
It’s so very lush! Especially in this part of Washington, which is wetter than Oregon in the summer.
Also – the cabins and chalets are so cute!
