Now, one thing I was able to do was to fill in a couple of bits of my ABC Wednesday posts. This first a new bit for D where I talked about Devil's Club. Now, it took me a bit to figure it out, and I had to stop the car and get a close look, but these are Devil's Club shoots before they leaf out. Cool, no? (No I'm not talking about my toes any more--they had thawed out by this time.)
When I did N I posted about the National Park Inn which is part of the historic district at Longmire. The only photos I had for it were winter shots where the Inn was deep in snow. So here it is today. You see, there is not snow EVERYWHERE--just a lot of wheres.
For O I was telling about the Old Growth Forest at Ohanapecosh (where we camped among the puddles last night) and I mentioned nurse logs but didn't have any pictures. Today a short hike on Twin Firs Trail got us very close to lots of nurse logs--fallen trees which provide a perfect growing place for new plants. They aren't always easy to take a picture of, and I thought closer would be better, but it was still hard to get a good illustration.
...and took the longer route back to Ohanapecosh by way of major highways outside the park.
So, we had a whole different set of adventures that we hadn't expected, but I didn't get a set of pictures for the trailer tour and you will have to wait on that one. I did get some other special ones which I will post in separate posts.

Edit added later: the promos for tonight's late news say they will interview campers about how they are coping with the cold. Ha! YOU KNOW HOW WE DID IT! We split!!!
