I love this picture but mostly because is was a beautiful day, one more in a long summer of beautiful days that have stretched into Fall. We need rain, I'm ready for rain, and it is predicted to arrive tomorrow.
The Olympic Mountains are almost completely without snow and Hood Canal was like glass.
The Northwest doesn't get the spectacular Fall colors that some areas do, but that one touch of orange stands out perfectly. Looking closely you can see people on the beach enjoying the day as much as I was.
This was taken from Kitsap Memorial State Park, west of Poulsbo and south of Port Gamble on the Kitsap Peninsula. They offer camping, day use and have several larger buildings and shelters where they host many weddings and events. They have recently added small camper cabins that sleep 5 and have a microwave, refrigerator, baseboard heat, outdoor firepit and picnic table. There is water at each of the 4 cabins and the bathrooms are close. They are tiny log cabins and very reasonably priced for anyone wanting to spend time in the area.
