Farewell Summer!

“Once a year, go somewhere you've never been before.”
— Dalai Lama

Lake Crescent

Olympic National Park - Washington
September 4th, 2015

This magnificent lake was formed by glaciers during the last Ice Age.

It's known for its extraordinary blue water and clarity;

caused by a lack of nitrogen in the water which inhibits the growth of algae.

The deep, turquoise blue lake has a depth of 625 ft;

with an unofficial depth of over 1,000ft.

This is the first cat I've ever seen walking on a leash through the vast forest.

The brave feline took a quick break to pose for a picture.

Leaving the Olympic Peninsula on the ferry; headed back to Seattle.

Farewell Summer!
