LaCrosse Pass Trail View

LaCrosse Pass Trail View

The LaCrosse Pass Trail connects the West Fork of the Dosewallips River Trail with the Duckabush River Trail within the Olympic National Park. The trail doesn’t get a lot of traffic, since it is a couple days hiking in to get to either end. Jeff and I were camped down on the W Fork Dosewallips and hiked to the pass on a dayhike. When we had a chance to hike the side from the Duckabush up to the pass, the trail had a section washed out and it was impassable (it has since been repaired).

Port Townsend Snowstorm Views

View to the Southeast from Fort Worden

I was able to get over to Fort Worden soon after the snowstorm at the end of December. The broken clouds and the views to the southeast and south were spectacular. A real treat after being stuck indoors for a couple days.

Strange Clouds over Mt Baker

Strange Clouds over Mt Baker

I was walking the beach on Marrowstone Island (SE of Port Townsend) and noticed the strange-ish clouds overhead with Mt Baker in the distance. Not particulary weird clouds. Just a little funny looking. Fargo clouds. (Movie reference)

I tried this in black and white, since the colors weren’t a big part of the image. But I ended up liking it better in color. I think it had to do mostly with the separation in the sky. The blue in the sky created more separation than it did when converted to a gray tone. But maybe I was just too lazy to keep working at it.

Clouds Burning Off

Valley Clouds 1

My previous post talked about hiking and having clouds move in … this one covers the other scenario, where you start the hike in clouds and hike up out of them (or have them burn off while you are hiking). This is the same location as the previous post, Mt Ellinor in the Southeast corner of the Olympic Mountains (outside the park).
