We've been in the Pacific Northwest for several days now Camped for two nights right on the Strait of Juan de Fuca at a Washington state park campground next to Dungeness National Wildlife Reserve, and today we drove into Olympic National Park and found this amazing early 1900s-era lodge on the southern shore of Lake Crescent (the fjord in the title). The lake is 600 feet deep, incredibly clear, and nestled in a bowl of steep mountains covered with fir trees. Our cabin faces due west and at this moment C is watching the sunset -- he's all bundled up in fleece, parka, hat, & gloves 'cause it's COLD up here when the onshore winds set in as the sun drops. We're staying in a little cabin on the grounds of the lodge. Cozy (always a plus for me) and the front windows look straight out on the lake!

Apologies for the lack of recent photos and posts. We spent long days on the road traveling between Pendleton and Portland and then between Portland and Edmonds, WA (north of Seattle), and access to wi-fi has been scarce. None at all in our campground. Bear with us, and thanks to those of you who are hanging in checking to see whether we've posted recently.
