Ludlow Falls

According to my map the Olympic Peninsula has 29 waterfalls.  They all require some level of walking or hiking.  Some harder than others.  Ludlow Falls is an easy one as the trail is well maintained and not too far or steep.  In the typical nanny state  fashion there is a large green fence that “protects’ you from falling in and/or getting too close.  In order to get a clean shot you have to pre-focus,  compose,  then raise your tripod higher than you can reach and use the remote release. This photo is of the upper end of the falls.  In order to get the lower end you would have to wade upstream and around the fence.  That would be better done in the summer.  This day was very cold.

Bus Stop

I returned last night from another fine trip this time exploring the East side of the Olympic Peninsula.  This bus stop in just off the main road (Highway 305) between Bainbridge Island and Poulsbo.  The rain sure helps things grow.
