It was expected to be 80 degrees in town, so naturally, we need to get away from the scorching heat, we head to the coast where it is always 10 degrees cooler and windy. There's a loop on wta.org called Damon's Point. Although there are a couple rustic-weather beaten park type signs, this "hike" is more of a free for all, just walk around type of deal.

First and foremost, we learned that Julie is well prepared for everything. She had band-aids, solarcaine, snacks, and a blanket for us to sit on while we ate lunch.
We didn't see a lot of flowers, but the ones we did were delicately low to the ground.
While alive and standing tall, it's easy to appreciate the monstrosity of Washington's fir trees, but sometimes it's hard to grasp just how enormous the trees are until you get up close and personal with them.
We crossed several bridges along the way, the first, a man made bridge crossing the river, the others were more rustic and tested our balancing skills.
We stopped at Lake Cushman on the way out.
A quiet, peaceful setting for a last look before driving back to civilization.
