    A place I enjoy

    Mary, I hope they bring some good memories. The sunset shots will have to wait, may add them to this thread later.
    Anyway, this is two of the beach parks in Deception Pass, Washington State. C&C is always welcome and there are plenty more should you like to see.

    Beautiful scenes you've captured. I liked most the 4th, with the wooden bridge, as I always say, I like very much pictures which guide me somewhere - perhaps I'm a disoriented person .

    It's the kind of pictures that make me feel visiting the places - not sure if it was your goal.

    The sunset shots are really spectacular, Paul. Loved the hues and the serene feeling of it. Nice work!

    Oh my gosh, Paul! You captured something that I have logged in my memory bank. They are all amazing. I miss the Pacific NW... sigh.

    Thank you Jiro, it was a long day waiting for it to set....not a cloud in the sky. I crossed my fingers due to the rain forcasted for the fallowing day...and a few showed last minute.

    Mary, you can always make a trip back....the PNW would be happy to have you. Glad I could capture it well enought to satisfy your memory.

    Beautiful indeed. It looks like it could be cold in winter though (he says, living in Brisbane where anything under 20C is considered cold).

    Looks like a beautiful place, Paul. Good shots, but #2. #3, and #6 look a little dark on my monitor. I think the first sunset shot is the best of the set.

    Oh, I was really hoping for a photo of the bridge in the fog.... This is one of my favorite places in the whole wide world, too!

    Re: A place I enjoy

    Paul- I'm trying to remember the name of the indian reservation in the most northwest point of WA ... I can't remember if it is in the Hoh Rainforest or if that's just close by. There is a trail that winds up and ends at a ridge and you don't wanna fall off the edge. Do you know what I'm referring to?

    Thanks Mark, it does get cold but but only real cold for brief periods. We generally have a higher percentage of rain than snow. Out there on the coast can get some pretty nasty winds though.

    Thank you Rob, I think you are right, those few are a tad on the dark side. My PP skills are improving but still lacking some and I am also trying out new programs for my RAW.

    Sorry Katy, no bridge this time. A good reason for another trip though. =}

    Mary, I am at a loss. There are a # of tribes here and I can rarely remember the Indian names. If you remember I would like to know...the trail sounds like a good one.

    Re: A place I enjoy

    Gosh, it was so long ago. I've Googled but can't pinpoint it. I think it may be the Quinalt Indian Reservation. I know we visited the Hoh Rainforest during the same trip. I remember driving through the reservation to get to the trailhead. I mean no disrespect to Native Americans when I say the following, it's just the way it was.

    When entered the reservation area there were dogs, horses, cats, nekkid kids, and drunk Indians everywhere... sitting on top of cars, washer and dryers etc. I had never seen anything like it.

    We hiked the trail and the further on the trail we got, the more rustic the trail became. It was wound up onto a ridge to a specific place... and I can't remember what it's called... I'll ask my husband if he remembers. It's gonna drive me crazy til I figure it out. The trail was literally on the edge of a cliff with the ocean below. There were no railings, nothing. One misstep and you were going over and you won't be coming back. I remember thinking that if it had been anyplace other than a reservation there would have had to been railings etc. It was beautiful, as was the rainforest.

    Mary, the Hoh rainforest is quite beautiful and very dense with green. As for the Indians....well that seems to be the case on most of the reservations around here. Not all and some have cleaned up a bit now that they have opened so many casinos.

    As for the railings, well believe it or not most places along the coast here have no railings unless it is a park you pull up to in your car and even then not many. Very nature concious around here, guess they wish not to mess with the view. Wish they had thought about that when the installed the phone and electricity lines around town. You can hardly catch a view more than 30ft without lines in your way.

    I still can't remember exactly where it's at... I'm old now, and I've forgotten. I hate power lines... they ruin everything... except... power.

    Paul,
    I bet you never get tired of going there to take pictures. All of them are great; it looks like a very relaxing place to be.

    Thanks Rob, it is a great spot to spend a day. There is honestly more hiking trails than one could do over a weekend. This is all saltwater but across the lake is a year round fly-fishing lake....so one could spend some good time there. It does however get quite busy in the summer.

    I recognized it before you even said it was Deception Pass. I was stationed in Everett for 4 years and used to go up there all the time. I miss WA state so much.

    Great pictures BTW.

    I have been going nuts trying to remember... I finally did and came to post and... you beat me to it! Yes, it is the Makah Indians and it is most definitely Cape Flattery. Absolutely beautiful and worth the hike... just watch your footing.
