When we pulled into the Escapees campground in Chimacum, we paid the weekly rate which was equal to 6 nights at the regular rate. That being the case, we were ready to move on after the six nights and explore some new country.
We drove along Crescent Lake for a few miles.
We could see a fire lookout tower up on a hillside.
We arrived at the Forks, WA Elks lodge which was to be our base camp for the next 4 nights.
After lunch, we had good weather and decided to drive to LaPush which is on the Pacific Ocean. Needless to say, it seems to be a favorite hangout for seagulls.
As we drove into LaPush we saw this sign.
And this is the sign heading out of LaPush. The Forks area really picked up in tourism and popularity after the Twilight books became popular.
From LaPush, we drove around to Rialto Beach which is on the Pacific Ocean on the north side of LaPush across the Quillayute River.
Some pelicans flying over the ocean.
On our way back to the Elks lodge, we caught this view of Mount Olympus.
