Elena and I took Ian and Miranda on a ‘short’ hike into the Olympic Rain Forest. It was short in mileage, about 2.6 miles in, but the constant up and down and switching back and the first trip of the year syndrome, meant it was really, really tough. Lovely scenery, lots of berries, salmonberries and little wild strawberries and a few huckleberries. There will be thimbleberries and huckleberries and blueberries several weeks. Great moments.
