The Forest At The Cascade

There are still a few salmon in the pools below Salmon Cascades on the Sol Duc River, really really big ones. But between storms nobody was jumping. Even at midday the sun is very low in the sky. It makes the forest luminous.

Driving west means traversing the south shore of Lake Crescent twice every time, out and back. It's beautiful: glacially carved, steepsided and deep; a sort of fjord, except it doesn't open to the sea. And since I have to drive more slowly than I used to, I savor it. Haven't gotten a decent photograph yet. The Park Service has a webcam there. It can give you a sense of it...
