Rialto Beach

I know what you’re thinking. Rialto Beach? Doesn’t that girl live in Kansas? Huh?

Yes, I live in Kansas. And yes, this blog is about life in Kansas… mostly.  But our computer is in the shop this week, and the only access to any of my pictures is an external backup drive with older stuff.  So this week, I’ll be showing you some pics taken during our trips over the last couple years.

First up: Rialto Beach in Olympic National Park in the beautiful state of Washington.

We were there in July of last year as part of a trip to both Washington and Oregon. We flew into Portland, rented a car, and spent a week driving up through central Washington and then back south again along the coast and on down along the Oregon coast. Rialto Beach was our first visit to the ocean on this trip, and flatlanders that we are, we stood in awe of the enormous driftwood,

the crashing waves,

the silvery light,

and one of the most beautiful sunsets we’ve ever witnessed.

It was one of the best parts of that trip. Such a beautiful spot, and we’re so glad that it will always be there for future generations.
