Ruby Beach, WA

We were greeted by a foggy morning on the coast as we made the return drive home from our adventures in the Hoh Rainforest. The fog was so thick that it became a cloak of invisibility for the vast Pacific Ocean. No matter how hard we looked for the water from the cliffs, we only saw a scene of bright gray.

We randomly pulled over at a beach with hopes of visible rocky outcrops and could not have been more pleased! We found sea stacks and cobbles and drift wood (oh my!). Combined with the fog, these features made for lots of dramatic photo opportunities.

...lots of rock cairns!

Be the rock!

Pretty thick fog!
