Dungeness Spit and Environs

July, 2003

We took a trip up to the north coast of the Olympic Peninsula, and camped at the base of the Dungeness Spit

Tenting at Dungeness Spit

Here's the Spit at high tide - it goes out 5 miles to a lighthouse on the end

Gavin's ready to go exploring!

Climbing on the huge chunks of driftwood is fun!

"I'm a big boy, I do it myself..."

"...with just a little help from mama still!"

Hmmm - what's Kelly got in her snack pack?

A driftwood teeter-totter

There was a low tide the second morning, so we went out tide pooling at Salt Creek Park

In the afternoon we headed up to Hurricane Ridge and picniced in the bright sun

Picnicing can be thristy work!

Bryden and I hiked to the top of Hurricane Hill together

The views from the top were pretty nice!

Last morning - rise and shine! (There's two boys in there - can you see Gavin?)

There's Gavin - the tent is plenty big to roll around in!

A typical car camping breakfast

On the last day we all hiked to the top of Blue Mountain, which is at the end of the highest road in Olympic National Park

We had lunch at a cool park in Sequim, the Old Railroad Bridge park

After lunch, we walked down the trail to the Dungeness River, and built a dam

More playing in the river

Brrr - this water is cold!

Hey daddy, what's over here?
