We had a wonderful family get-away this weekend to Lake Quinault and the Quinault Rainforest on the Olympic Peninsula. The trail system is awesome! We saw all sorts of waterfalls, foot bridges, creeks, lush trees, nurse logs, moss, and fungus! The few hikers we did encounter called my sister and me "troopers" in the rain!
We also learned all about Pacific Salmon and Steelhead at the Quinault National Fish Hatchery/Visitor Center. Above, Papa is helping us feed the young salmon some pellets.
On a morning run, we saw one of the six champion conifer trees living in the Quinault Valley. This picture doesn't do the world's largest spruce tree justice. It was HUGE!!

We were exhausted by the end of the weekend with all the hiking and exploring. Great memories!!
