Sol Duc, Olympic Rain Forest
Many years ago we took a spring vacation to Seattle. Freezing cold with some snow on the ground, we were chilled to the bone. A friend recommended we stop in Sol Duc which had just reopened. It is a resort with hot springs in the Olympic Rainforest, national park. The name, Sol Duc, is an Indian term meaning 'sparkling water,' for the hot springs. Apparently people have been going to Sol Duc for over 100 years for pleasure and health.
We spent the night in a rustic, charming Sol Duc cabin surrounded by towering evergreens, warmed our bones in the hot springs, and hiked in rain forest. Talk about Serene!
