After that we headed out of town and spent some time in Port Angeles. We drove out on a sand spit named Ediz Hook and could look across to Canada.
Then it was on to Marymere Falls. The trail was narrow and had more steps than I thought it would, especially the closer we got to the falls. The steps kept going higher and higher and I was very glad I bought that knee brace.

Along the trail there were many little footbridges to cross little streams.
And sometimes the trail itself is just as interesting as the destination. Too bad I caught that dude coming around the corner.
The very top of the falls.
As usual, my shots are not near as good as my daughter's. She has a new long lens and is learning how to work with the shutter speed on water. But here goes.
It really does look better in person. This is a side view.
That's all the energy I had to take any more. By then it was after 4:00 pm and the kid wanted to stop at Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort to look through their gift shop. We flew through there and then headed to camp. We pulled in at 6:00, unloaded our stuff, grabbed some dinner and sat around the rest of the night. We had only hiked about 3 miles but it felt like more. The next day will be a day of rest before we try to tackle Second Beach.
Our little cabin with the Dazed Two on the left. The couple next to us is from Spokane also and we met a woman on the trail who is from just a little north of Spokane; small world.
