Some R&R

We have had this trip planned to Washington since the beginning of the year and have looked forward to it ever lived up to all our expectations!!
We saw such amazing scenery and had days with highs in low 60s and lows in the 40s...nice break from the 98+ degree weather we've seen since moving here, lol!

This was the view from our room! We could see the tide come in and out.

We spent one whole day fishing...and I mean the whole day....10 hours later...this is what we had!

Mine was just a little bigger than Wade's!!

After leaving Union, we went to Port Angeles where we went to Hurricane Ridge. The views from here were just spectacular. The trees spread out like green carpet and the mountains were snow capped.

We were just walking along and Wade stopped, and gave me the shh signal....we saw 5 deer and one little baby fawn! They were too cute!! The way their little hooves allow them to walk on such steep places is really amazing.

We saw a black bear from a distance. We could watch him run along the mountain side, but couldn't see him clearly. It was still neat.

We definitely had to keep our eyes open...thankfully we didn't see a cougar...though he could've been around

Another day we went to the temperate rainforest. I have never seen so much moss and ferns!! The trees rivaled the great Red Woods we saw in Cali on our honey moon.

It felt like we were in one of C.S. Lewis' Narnia books!

This picture kinda helps show how big everything was and how much growth there is! Wade looks tiny!

We thank the Lord for such a good time together and all the fun things we were able to see!!
