In the evening, we spent time watching the water, cooking, and filtering. A little dipper bird put on a show for us trying to catch his dinner.
I continued to wonder about the many layers of ecosystem in these old trees, who all made their home here?
This bridge made me a little woozy due to how high up it was and just how fast this water was moving.
I was stuck by this tree which seemed like it's branch was growing right out of the ground because it had integrated so much with the forest floor.
It was fun seeing how this mushroom positioned itself under the tree.
The clouds lifted enough for some snow covered peaks to show themselves.
Corrine is a wonderful friend to hike with- patient, persistent, and adventurous. This is us reaching the trailhead to end our 27 mile hike.
You can't hug this tree but I paid my respects by leaning into it!
What a wonderful time along the Quinault River with perfect weather, no crowds, no bears this time, and just time to enjoy the beauty and magic of the Enchanted Valley!
