So we loaded up some water, sandwiches, snacks and hiker umbrellas in our pack. Then climbed aboard the local bus system; which dropped us off right at the trialhead. This whole adventure cost us $4 round trip in travel expenses.
Exploring the local Quinault trail systems is a perfect way to spend any spring day. Found more spring flowers than we could even count. Most of which were Trillium's; which were in full bloom. The sounds of birds echoing through he forest was also a highlight. Even got 'buzzed' by a few humming birds.
Finished the day with a picnic lunch on the Lake Quinault waterfront in the sun. Then we loaded back on the late afternoon bus to take us home. Looking at the Doppler once back into the safety of our domestic shelter, heavy rain system moved back into the area. We timed our adventure perfectly!
