Remembrances of Summer Part II

Remembrances of Summer Part II

December 10th, 2014

Alternate title: Rock Portraits. Alternate alternate title: My Coastal Obsession Continues.

The day after our Marmot Pass hike we struck out across the Olympic Peninsula to the coast. Following a brief stop in Port Angeles for the requisite bear canisters, and hurrying through Forks least we get soul-sucked by any wandering Twilight fans, we hiked into Second Beach, supplies and all. After Ruckle on Salt Spring, this is the camping spot most dear to my heart…you may notice they are both seaside. (Incidentally, though I figured this would be the last camping trip of the season, Jacob and I managed one more excursion out to Second Beach in the fall, which was expertly documented by my good friend Hannah.)

There are no campsites as such on Second Beach. Rather, it’s find your favorite patch of sand and setup house.

Our second day dawned ghostly and white, the very air sodden and chilled. We were socked in until late morning, when we meandered down to investigate various tide pools, slick cliff faces, and mysteriously ruddy caves.

These four days in summer were a little world unto themselves. Looking forward to many more. And the sun.
