Over the Memorial Day holiday weekend, Fig and I took a drive up the 101 and ended up in the Bogachiel State Park. We camped overnight, hiked the Bogachiel trail, visited Forks, and made smores!
The weather was fine with just a light shower toward the end of our hike and a nice downpour that forced us into the tent to listen the rain patter while we played cards. We both agreed that the only thing that might have made it the night better was if we had a book on tape (or ipod with travel speaker)...Harry Potter or Jonathan Strange would have been perfect!

If you are in the area and looking for a fun, easy trail to hike, I totally recommend this one. The campsite is just a short drive across the street and 2 miles or so to the trailhead. It was mostly flat, after the steep hike down to the trail, and only a few slopes here and there. Beautiful mossy forest, a river, secret tree bridges! Just lovely, can't wait to get back there.
