Spruce Railroad Trail

Saturday morning, Travis and I decided to head out for a hike with the girls.  It had been a while since I had picked up my camera last and the rain had subsided for the day.  The Spruce Railroad Trail runs along the north shore of Lake Crescent, and it is an easy trail for little kids.  The fall colors have been amazing, and I was able to capture some of it with my camera while most of the leaves are still hanging on the trees.

My best guess is that this is a Western Sword Fern

The girls had fun running along the trail and were fascinated by the large maple leaves strewn all over the ground.  We made it to the arched bridge, and I’m kicking myself for not taking pictures of that beautiful structure over the lake!

We found Taryn's named etched on a Madrona tree by the arched bridge.

And you can’t go on a hike west of Port Angeles without stopping by Granny’s Cafe for a soft-serve cone.

  1. Every time we look at pictures of the girls a smile starts
    way down and comes up to light up our faces. We can
    barely wait to hear what they’ve done the next time we see
    them.
