Fun Photo Friday — Lake Crescent and Marymere Falls

Today I present to you my favorite photographs from this segment of our road trip into the Olympic National Park and our visit to Lake Crescent and Marymere Falls.  On Wednesday I did a lot of talking about Marymere Falls, but my photos concentrated on the hike through the old growth forest on the way there.  So, what did we see when we arrived?  A 90-foot/27-meter drop from Aurora Ridge to Barnes Creek.

But the forest alone was worth the hike.

And let us not forget Lake Crescent.

But perhaps my favorite shot of this segment was this lone dead tree surrounded by a sea of life overlooking the calm lake waters below.

By the way, if you’re reading this and other material authored by me on The Destinary website, this post was not “Posted on (fill in the date) | By destinary” as they’ve been erroneously claiming; this material was in fact reposted.  The Destinary have also been claiming the right to do so, without links back to the original and without full attribution (“by RDoug” and a nonworking link is not proper attribution) with a rather bizarre interpretation of U.S. copyright law in which they claim I’m responsible for changing my RSS feed settings so that they cannot skim my material for commercial purposes.  That would make reading my blog less convenient for you, which I’m not willing to do.  As such, I’ll be running this little diatribe on all travel related posts until they cease and desist, along with this:

Final note:  Considering The Destinary is a site run by a travel agency, you may want to rethink doing business with them.
