Day Trips: Rialto Beach
After our visit to La Push and Second Beach, we drove over to Rialto Beach, which is near the Mora Campground in the Olympic National Park. We peeked at the sites in the campground and while they have beautiful spots in the woods and along the river, they are very small and lack any hookups.
Rialto Beach is gorgeous and has great views of the sea stacks. Like Second Beach, the shoreline here was full of huge logs, fallen trees and random pieces of driftwood. And stones! Beautiful, beautiful stones, glistening from the waves washing up against the shore.
There are picnic tables, a large parking lot and public restrooms at this beach. I'd love to return someday and take a long walk up the beach (during low tide) to the Hole-in-the-Wall.
Heading back to our camp from another direction, we noticed the beautiful rivers and had to stop for a few pictures.
There was one fisherman out on the point. So peaceful!
This is either the Dickey or Sol Duc River, both of which feed into the Quillayute River. They are so pretty and look like great spots for fishing. Maybe next time!
The moon came up over the trees and the sky began to fill with stars. I couldn't stop from gazing upward, looking at all the different constellations, wishing I knew more about my DSLR camera so I could capture the beauty of the sky.
A perfect fire.
We had a great day exploring and a lovely final evening at this campsite. The coyotes yipped and cried a farewell to us as we headed off to bed. Tomorrow we're off to Port Townsend!
