On another gorgeous mid-autumn day, we made a trip up to Camas, Washington to explore the Lacamas Creek Park. What we found was nothing short of spectacular!
Two sets of waterfalls (Woodburn and Potholes), a lake, a bridge, and a beautiful scenery!
I cannot overstate how STUNNINGLY GORGEOUS this hike was back in mid-September as the fires were unrelenting in the West. Just. Look. At. That.
We drove out to the trailhead (through North Cascade National Park) on a leap of faith that we would be met with decent air quality and weather. Needless to say, it was a perfect day.
This feels like the appropriate moment to mention that the ONLY activity we had actually made reservations for during our trip up to Northern Washington was canceled because of morning fog. But we pivoted and got to experience Moran State Park on Orcas Island!
Give us a warm(ish) autumn day in the Pacific Northwest and we’ll find a place to hike. It was a perfect morning to get out and explore the Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge and tackle the Cape Horn Loop Trail.
You can watch the video of it HERE!
We camped on the beach in Olympic National Park, and it was amazing (and a lot of work)! Watch one of our treks down to the beach here!
This was the view from our “front porch” for a couple of days.
Sometimes a simple hike is all you need in life. I’ll go ahead and trademark that quote right now. I’m sure there’s some paperwork involved, but if you see this quote on the interwebs, I’m guessing they got it from this moment. Right here. Orrrrr maybe I’m not the first person to type it. But I feel like it. Too much tangent? Okay, I’ll stop. The fact remains: sometimes a simple hike is all you need in life.
The Sol Duc Falls (aka Soleduck Falls) hike, just happens to be the inspiration for my new Pinterestingly, Instagrammable quote (insert all appropriate hashtags here). PS. You can watch the video of our hike HERE!
Wow. These falls are epic, and the name is epically redundant! Once we got to them, the falls were RIGHT THERE. And flowing quickly!
Psssst. You can watch the video of our hike HERE!
Hey all, you can find the video of our hike from Cape Disappointment HERE!
**Spoiler Alert**—Cape Disappointment was NOT disappointing. In fact, I think we can safely say that it exceeded our expectations and we can’t wait to go back and explore more of the area!
Cape Disappointment State Park is on the southwestern part of the coast in Washington State. There is a $10 day use fee, although if you plan on visiting more Washington State Parks, I’d recommend a Discover Pass, as the annual pass is only $30. It’s pretty simple to get to from Portland, but also makes for a fairly long day-trip. There are campsites and wonderful day-use spaces within the part of the park that we ventured to, but I can imagine it can get a bit chaotic during the summer months.
