I was up hiking in one of the easy to access alpine areas in the Olympic National Park and saw this Townsend’s Chipmunk hanging from a Canadian thistle top. I love the way the back toes are splayed out.
I was walking the beach at Fort Worden and saw a couple of river otters come out of the water (Puget Sound) and climb up onto the rocks. Glad I had my big telephoto with me … and not just my Holga!
This is part of the Dosewallips Elk herd that hangs out in the Brinnon area on the east side of the Olympic Peninsula. I found them relaxing in the Dosewallips State Park campground.

This ducks were all standing on this log in the morning sun. I think they may have just wanted to get out of the scummy water. I know I sure would have.

We were camped at Mary’s Falls Camp on the Elwha River in Olympic National Park. In the morning, while having coffee and breakfast, had a young doe walk through camp. Shortly thereafter, her two young fawns followed … clearly a little nervous about the (smelly) strangers.
A nice way to start the day for us.
