Our first camping trip involved doing some exploring in new parts of Olympic National Park. Jim did the research of places to go, and included a short drive to Ruby Beach. I'm so glad he did! This is really a beautiful, serene place, especially early in the morning. It features sea stacks, those monoliths of rock which seem to rise from the ocean for no particular reason.
This one has a peep-hole carved into it - a strange phenomenon and makes me wonder how the water was able to carve such a cute opening in such a big rock. I'm more than happy to tote the tripod down the beach on such a beautiful summer day.
