La Push, Washington

I have a list below of memes I am joining for this week. They are all fun memes to participate in...I hope you can join in with the fun  and check out some of the participating posts. Special thanks to all the wonderful host and their memes.

I am sharing more images from our trip to Washington State on this day we left Port Angeles and headed to the resort on the coast at La Push, Washington.


With time to spare before checking into our next hotel, we stopped at the Hoh Rainforest. We had time for another walk on the trail before going to the Quiluette Ocean Resort near La Push Washington.
Above some scenes from the morning of Oct 6th, the sunrise, top right are the Ring-necked Ducks, Male Elk walking down the road, fall colors and leaves, Varied Thrush and bottom left a Sparrow.


 One of my favorite birds from Washington the Varied Thrush..


Neat looking tree and moss seen at the Hoh Rainforest, Olympic National Park. The ferns growing in the moss on the tree were pretty.


Our Quiluete Oceanside Resort room at the 1st beach in La Push. We stayed in one of the motel rooms, they also have cabins and the full service RV parks.


The view of 1st beach from our balcony. Olympic National Park on the Pacific Ocean has the three beaches named 1st, 2nd and 3rd beaches along with the Rialto and Ruby beaches.


Above our some of the birds ( Black Turnstone, Belted Kingfisher, Bald Eagle)  I saw from our table at the River Side restaurant which is also owned and operated by the Quiluete Tribe. I hope you enjoyed my post and images. As always I appreciate your visits and nice comments. Thank you! Have a happy day and new week ahead!

Another treasure of lovely gifts of nature. That moss in the tree is just fabulous! The orange leaves in the backdrop make the image eye-catching.
Thanks for "taking" us to Washington. Nice place to visit.

Mary Hone said...

I love that thrush. And what a nice view you had.

J said...

Only you could capture the richness of that sky shot! And I love the elk, just meandering along the road like he's going out for a break from the wife and kids! The moss picture too - what a palette of color!

Linda W. said...

Lovely sunrise! My hubby and I camped at Rialto Beach last fall and hiked to both second and third beaches. Your post brought back good memories.

Nice photos/collages! It's been quite awhile since I've seen a Varied Thrush.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Gorgeous nature shots and the resort looks great! With all those birds to see outside the window at the restaurant, even I might have forgotten to eat ( and usually nothing can distract me ).

Missy George said...

Beautiful sunrise..Love the moss in the trees in the rain forest.Beautiful shots as always..Have a wonderful week Eileen..

mick said...

A beautiful place to visit. The rainforest is magical and the beach is very special. It must get very rough at times with all those logs washed up on the beach. Thanks for sharing.

carol l mckenna said...

Beautiful collage of photos with delightful colors! Other nature photos are beautiful too!

Happy Week to you,
artmusedog and carol

Teresa Sjönberg said...

Hi Eileen! Oh wow! Is that a deer or moose? Those might be very dangerous if they jump on the road. I love your trip! What a place and so pretty pictures.

Lowcarb team member said...

Another great selection Eileen, I do love the colours in the sky in your first mosaic.

Wishing you a good week ahead.

All the best Jan

This is so exciting for people who loved the Twilight series.

Worth a Thousand Words

Michelle said...

La Push is a gorgeous area. I also like the look of the moss on the trees.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

What a nice place to stay and a beautiful part of the country. I wouldn't be able to identify many of the birds there! Love your photos and the info! Hugs, Diane

Tomoko said...

You always show us beautiful natures. They are all stunning and the ferns in the third photo especially captures my eyes.

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

You are a busy woman!

Lorrie said...

You saw some pretty birds, Eileen, out here in the Pacific Northwest. The beaches with those big rocks look vast and open. I hope you enjoyed your trip out here.

Stephanie said...

Beautiful images!

Bethany Carson said...

Love the beautiful colors of the sky in the first photo. It was also awesome to see the elk. I've never seen a varied thrush to my knowledge, neat bird! The moss is beautiful, and your photos of the beach really make me miss the ocean!

Felicia said...

beautiful scenery. love the tree with all the vegetation growing on it.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

The tree full of moss and ferns looks so magical --like a fairy tree! You had a nice room so close to the coast--it must have been lovely to hear the ocean, walk along the beach and see so many birds, Eileen.

ladyfi said...

Wow - fabulous shots! Love that first colourful collage.

amanda | wildly simple said...

Those coastal elk are fabulous!
I've always wanted to go to Olympic National Park.. mossy trees and ferns are some of my favorite things. Looks like a wonderful trip!

diane b said...

Love the photo of the tree in the forest with moss and stuff. Looks a great place for a vacation.

Rhonda Albom said...

That sparrow shot is wonderful.

Gunilla Bäck said...

Wonderful photos! I love the mossy trees.

The Yum List said...

There are some beautiful colours in these photos today.

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Eileen, I don't think I have ever been up that far on the coast other than British Columbia and Alaska. I have several cousins up in Washington and Oregon so a trip West may include a visit there at some point in the future perhaps. The Elk are magnificent! Great series of photos. Have a wonderful day tomorrow!

Rose said...

I LOVE that one of the moss in the tree. I would love to see that for myself. And wonderful views otherwise, too. Love that varied Thrush, too.

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

At a quick glance the thrush looks like a robin Eileen, I'll have to keep an eye out for them.

Ruth Rieckehoff said...

Love it! I am a bit obsessed with sea stacks and arches. I would love to contemplate these. I have a friend whose brother lives in Seattle. Every time they visit, they to a road trip to La Push and the Olympic Peninsula.

Karen S. said...

A wonderful place to visit! The view of the ocean reminds me of our vacation in Cannon Beach, Oregon. Such a lovely and interesting formations you find out there. Nice clean resort too! Enjoy your evening Eileen.

A nice place to spend your day, I was struck by the Belted Kingfisher, superb image.

Kusum Sanu said...

Wow! Olympic NP! Neat photos!

DeniseinVA said...

Another great post from your trip. Enjoyable looking at new birds, the rock formations are always so interesting out that way and your hotel room looks very nice. Happy day to you Eileen.

John's Island said...

Hi Eileen, I am loving your posts on your visit to Washington State. I still find it fascinating that one of my blogging friends came all the way out here from Maryland to enjoy some of the Pacific Northwest offerings. I wonder if this was your first trip to Washington? You got some great photos and visited some excellent spots. Over the last week or so we had some stormy weather with high waves over on the Ocean. There was lots of snowfall on Hurricane Ridge too! Some people lost power in Seattle yesterday due to the high winds. All seems back to normal this morning. Have a great day!

Birgitta said...

Lots of great photos here!

NatureFootstep said...

Beautiful photos Eileen! I'm amazed by the tree with the moss and ferns, so beautiful... You're traveling through gorgeous places with wonderful wildlife.

Pat Tillett said...

That is certainly a gorgeous area. It's been a long time since I've been there.
Great photos! Love the lushness of the rain forest photos.

Helma said...

I see there now a moose walk across the road ????
Magnificent to see. There are again very special and beautiful pictures between. Great that you always encounter so many beautiful things and it shares with us :-)

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

Oh, I would like to see another Varied Thrush. It was very elusive in Alaska, singing here and there and flying off before i even got a decent view. I love the great Northwest. Beautiful images to bring back memories.

Rambling Woods said...

I love all the natural beauty you captured Eileen.... Michelle
