|This is the path leading to the beginning of the boardwalk. The fog from overnight was still burning off over the water.|
|Former farmlands, now a mecca for migrating birds.|
|Along the shiny new boardwalk. That odd little building built into the boardwalk is a bird blind.|
|Two great blue herons. I saw about six of them flying together, but the shot of these two was the only one where you can tell what they are in it.|
|Almost to the end. The mountains in the distance are the Olympics, |
and the little roofed pavilion at the end of the boardwalk is barely visible.
|Mt. Rainier from the pavilion at the end of the boardwalk, with zoom. |
There aren't that many places where you can see both Mt. Rainier and the Olympic Mountains on the same hike. I was pleased to discover that this was one of them.
I will be making the four-mile round trip again, though, I'm sure.
