Zosia braves some rainy weather on a bird-watching deck at Billy Frank Jr. Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge.
The beaches at Ocean Shores are open to motorized traffic.
With no motorized vehicles here on this day, Zosia can only hear the roar of the Pacific Ocean waves.
|Zosia stands on the rocks of the North Jetty which flanks the entrance to Grays Harbor.|
With Grays Harbor at her back, Zosia makes a putt at the Ocean Shores Community Club's 9-hole disc golf course.
|On the Rainforest Nature Trail near Lake Quinault, Zosia examines some fungi on a moss-covered log.|
|The trillium thrives in the rainforests of the Olympic Peninsula.|
|Near Lake Quinault is this Sitka spruce tree which is over 58 metres tall and has a circumference of nearly 18 metres. The blue sign behind Zosia touts this as the "World's Largest Spruce Tree" and estimates its age at about 1000 years.|
|Zosia eats dinner inside the car at this scenic highway pullout in Olympic National Park.|
|The Big Cedar Tree in Olympic National Park used to stand over 53 metres high but was split by a storm in March 2014.|
|Zosia weaves through some driftwood at Ruby Beach. Behind the rocks in the distance is Abbey Island.|
|This rock outcrop at Ruby Beach stands like a silent sentinel watching the Pacific Ocean.|
|Zosia practices doing a Tyrolean traverse on a driftwood log.|
Visiting Ruby Beach is a fine way to end a rainy day at Olympic Peninsula.
