Timber Bridge

Posted: September 16, 2012 in HDR, Nikon D90, Washington

Once I finally tore myself away from the shores of Lake Crescent, I felt compelled to take the short hike from the Lodge to Marymere Falls. For one, the falls are quite pretty; and two it’s only like a mile-long hike or something, so there’s really no excuse. Although, to be fair, a mile-long hike in Washington, is a little different than a mile-long hile in Ohio. My wife, actually, kept a running total of the mileage we had hiked on this trip, and in the end it really didn’t sound all that impressive; which is why I told her she should have been keeping track of elevation too.

Anyway, this hike was rather nice. It starts at the lodge, progresses through a mossy forest, over a creek and crosses the bridge shown above right before it ends at the falls. Next to the falls, I thought the bridge was one of the highlights of the hike. It is made from fallen timber; the flat section being hewn by hand, and smoothed by the passing of numerous footfalls. It’s actually elevated as well, so you walk up about 3 or 4 steps to get onto the actual bridge. This was pretty handy as it made finding the best composition for my picture easy.
