A false start, the Spruce Railroad Trail and a walk around the Log Cabin Resort

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.img_6292

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.img_6293

Lake Crescent was a brilliant blue.img_6294 img_6295

Devils Punchbowl.  On hot days, people jump from the bridge.  It was not a hot day.img_6296

One of the points we could have used to enter Lake Crescent if it was warmer.img_6310

Boat ramp.  They had various things to rent, including stand up paddle boards.  We did not partake.img_6311

  1. 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).
