Images from the Olympics, August 2006.
Well, I've been slacking on the journaling, so this is just pictures and short descriptions.
Sunset from the camp at Yellow Banks. This was the second night of a weekend backpack from Rialto Beach to Lake Ozette with Anne-Marie. The first night and second day were completely overcast and foggy; no pictures to speak of. The clouds parted on the western horizon about twenty minutes before sunset.

Normally I spend most of my time in the mountains, but for this trip the coast seemed like the place to be. Rialto Beach Sunset #1, 9 August 2006.
