Our first destination was Sol Duc Falls (visited on July 17). Trail maps indicated a 5.5 mile round-trip hike via the Sol Duc Falls Trail and Lovers Lane Trail, but our FitBits and other GPS devices showed that we covered 7+ miles. (My FitBit showed a total of 9.3 miles for the day!) We were sure tired by the time we got back to the van!

on the viewing platform at the right of the photo.
The falls tumble 48 feet into a narrow canyon.
|This notice gave us pause!|
|What a joy it is to walk alongside a gurgling mountain |
stream. Wish I could have taken off my boots and soaked
my feet in the icy water.
|Ninety-foot-tall Marymere Falls is about 1.8 miles|
from our camp at Crescent Lake, WA
|This portion of the trail to Marymere Falls |
led up a steep narrow path.
|Much of our hike took us through old growth forest.|
