Above Brinnon, which is on U.S. Highway 101 about 45 miles south of Port Townsend, you can find the Dosiwallips river. The road ends at a landslide some six and a half miles above the highway. This was taken near the end of the road.
The south end of Discovery Bay, just west of Port Townsend is very shallow. At low tide, the shoreline can recede almost a mile from the high tide line. Don’t try to walk there. It’s mud and quicksand. Nasty stuff.
The weather looked unsettled so I headed out hoping for some photogenic clouds. I found them over Lake Crescent in the Olympic National Park, east of Port Angeles. The rest of the scenery was pretty nice, too.
April shower are supposed to bring May flowers. Forget that waiting crap. I’ll enjoy the tulips now, thank you.

I was flat on my belly, crawling around in the field, working to get the angle just right for the photo. (notice how the clouds look like mist coming from the flower’s “mouth”)
After I took the shot I turned over to see two people on the sidewalk just staring at me. I guess they had never seen a grown man squirming for a photo. I said, “Hi,” but they hurried off.
One of the most currently popular places to take landscape photos is Antelope Canyon, near Page Arizona. You can see why. Sunlight bounces around in the twisty and narrow canyon and makes the sandstone glow as if it is lit from the inside.
Arizona is where I’ve been playing for the last couple of months. At first I wasn’t going to post the photos as they have nothing to do with Port Townsend. However, I like the photos, so here they are.
This is pretty good wave action for a beach on the protected Strait of Juan de Fuca.
