This was intended to be an easy weekend...and it was...

I headed out to the Hoh CG inside Olympic NP meeting some friends there. It's a long drive out there taking nearly a full day between driving and the ferry ridge. I arrived, just before dinner, and we say around the campground, just a good group of friends, catching up on news... We headed out to Rialto Beach for a nice walk and beautiful sunset.

Day 2 we headed up the Hoh River Trail. We didn't make it that far up the trail. Lots of time spent just dawdling around. We hiked maybe 3 miles up the trail. Finding a nice sit spot along the river, we lounged, at lunch, lounged some more and then headed back to camp.

Day 3 was the loooong drive home.
