Field Work with Some Views

Field work so limited posts. But a nice day yesterday on the northwest Olympic Peninsula. Highway 101 goes over a pass between Mount Walker and the Olympic Mountains. A forest service road off the highway at the top of the pass provides access to the summit of Walker. Great views across Hood Canal and Puget Sound to Seattle and the Cascade Range. In May the forest understory of rhodedendrons is in bloom.
