On Sunday we were feeling restless and needed to get out of town, and so we decided to do a little exploring outdoors and take a drive out to see the Sol Duc waterfall. Forty five minutes into the drive, we reached the Sol Duc turnoff from highway 101 and discovered that the road was closed. Well, that was unfortunate for us, but we were determined to continued on to explore somewhere, and we ended up in Forks where we enjoyed seeing Bella's truck and exploring the Twilight information in the Visitors Center. At the suggestion of the friendly host in the Visitors Center, we continued on to Rialto Beach. What a beautiful place! I thought I'd share a few of our photos. Rialto Beach, and Forks for that matter, are definitely worth the drive.
As soon as we parked in the beach parking lot, we were amazed at the huge piles of logs that had washed in from high tides. We were also curious to find that this is a black-sand beach made from volcanic material.
On our way back, we stopped to take photos near a restaurant that serves take-out, at the turnoff right before Rialto Beach. A very friendly cat lives there.
