Heavy rain started coming down at 11:00 last night, a hard pounding rain. No need to get up early for sunrise. Just a dark gray night becoming a dull gray day. We were camped at Kalaloch Beach Campground, just off Highway 101 in Washington. We slept in until 8:00, then got up and put on rain coats. I made coffee on the camp stove, in the rain.
Kalaloch and Ruby Beach, Olympic National Park, Washington were on tap for day two of our late March trip to Olympic National Park. Exploring, photographing, walking the trails and beaches and camping out at night. We drove from Graves Creek Campground through Queets to Beach 1. It started out a nice sunny day, not so good for waterfall images, but I was hoping for some good color in the sky for sunset.
We left Eugene, Oregon Saturday morning on a trip to Olympic National Park, Washington and the surrounding area. Lake Quinault area was our first stop off Highway 101. After visiting the Lake Quinault Lodge, we headed up the South Shore Road.
I had planned on going to Waldo Lake, Oregon for a photo trip this morning for sunrise, but the cloud cover forecast changed and I didn’t think I would get a colorful sunrise. I figured I wouldn’t go, but then I got an Aurora alert.
