Discovering the Lower South Fork Skokomish River Trail

Discovering the Lower South Fork Skokomish River Trail

We set out on this Memorial Day weekend unsure about what we wanted in our adventure. We had contemplated the Mount Walker viewpoint trail, but as the forecast got grayer and grayer, we decided a mountain viewpoint on a cloudy day might be kind of a bust. So, I found the perfect river trail: the Lower Gray Wolf River! Perfect, right? It had also been on my list for a while now, so we decided on that. Saturday morning, we headed to the Edmonds ferry terminal, and unfortunately, it appeared that everybody had the same idea to head to the peninsula that we had. The 90-minute wait was something we’d never encountered there! So, we reevaluated and headed south around the sound. By the time we were through Olympia, I decided it was too late in the day to get back to the north end up to the Lower Gray Wolf River, so now it was time for Plan C. With 3G connection fading fast, I found ourselves a new destination: The Lower South Skokomish River Trail.

Dosewallips State Park, Part 2: This Time, We Camp!

For months, we’ve been eagerly anticipating our first camping trip. We couldn’t wait to get outside and try out all our new gear that we’d accumulated over the winter months. Spenser surprised me with “secret plans,” which turned out to be returning to Dosewallips State Park for camping! Wahoo!
Another Olympic Adventure!
