|Ruby Beach in Olympic National Park|
There is an exception, however. Ruby Beach is simply a 0.25 mile stroll from the parking lot just off Highway 101 near the Hoh River entrance to Olympic National Park. It offers incredible scenery, including up-close sea stacks, and makes for an excellent sunset destination.
This image was captured during a March visit while camped at the Hoh River Campground in ONP. I had hoped to photographed the sea stacks, but this early in the year the best light was further to the south. I'm happy with what I came away with. Others appear to be as well, as this image was recently licensed to appear in world-wide circulated textbook!

As always, thanks for looking!
