Retired, love the natural world. Want to see it and appreciate that our species has not been able to destroy it.
Spent Christmas day 2015 walking around Westport. King tide made for an interesting day at the beach.
Caught a break with weather on Dec 25-26 and spent a night camped at Grayland. Kingtide made access to the beach tricky and beach conditions were not great for hiking with the high tide, but campground is fine and allows for easy access to the coast.
Camped in this area during king tide around Christmas 2015, high tide and swells had the Pacific crashing into the infrastructure from Westport to Raymond (and elsewhere). Hard to get much time walking on the beach and not much beach to walk with the high tide, but still very impressive. Lots of flotsam, logs etc washed up to the roads and jetties.
Camped at Berry Creek near the 6 mile marker on Skate Creek Road. Hiked the three lakes trail on Thursday. It was quite lovely. Lots of dispersed campsites along Skate Creek Road or along the 84 Road that leads out to High Rock Lookout and the Three Lakes Trailheads.

Nice hike, decent trails and roads. Managed to get to the trailhead in our prius.
Walked the Skyline Trail. At Promontory Point it is difficult to get across ice, so need to walk the High Skyline Trail to complete the loop. Overcast, cool, the colors were dazzling and there were few people on the trail at 8 am when we left Paradise and started up.

We were there with granddaughter on Oct 3rd and the salmon were running very heavily to the pool below the falls. It was magnificent, but very smelly as the fish were ending their lives in that reach of the river. You would not want to go wading in the water that time of year because of smell and water quality, but it was still a great place to show a young person the end point of a salmon's life and talk about the salmon life cycle.
