Fall Continues...First Snows on the Olympics, Railroad Bridge Park, Shelley Heather

Hi there! Fall is certainly here...and the Olympic Mountains of Olympic National Park just south of us have their first significant snowfall...



We had a break in the clouds a few days ago...before this major wind, rain and mountain snow event, and went to a favorite place for an autumn walk...Railroad Bridge park on the Olympic Discovery Trail, here in Sequim.





The area encompasses riverside walking trails, and old disused trestle railroad bridge that used to move timber from the Olympic Mountains to mills in Sequim and other communities that has been converted to foot, horseback and bike traffic only as part of the Discovery trail which circumnavigates (or will when totally finished) the Olympic Peninsula.




The old beams and supports are huge!




The bridge crosses the Dungeness River which goes from the Olympic Maountains to the shores of Puget Sound and the Dungeness Spit which gave it's name to Dungeness Crab.  There is some tie way back to settlers from Dungeness Scotland.





It's a fabulous walk all year round. The fall salmon runs had just finished, and when we were there to see that...my camera card was full!Rats! But we enjoy the fall walks among the big trees with their huge leaves. So...it was a lovely walk, then home for a cup of tea!






I found a Shelley Heather teacup with a bridge...should have had my tea in that I guess!
