Ruby Beach - Olympic Peninsula

Crashing surf, sea stacks, gulls, and the tide washing in and out according to the pull of the moon, all and more greet the visitor to Ruby Beach.
Ruby Beach is a beautiful park on the Pacific Ocean about 35 miles south of Forks, WA (of the ‘Twilight Saga’ fame) accessed by a steep, but well cared for trail that winds down through lush, dense, coastal woodlands opening onto the rocky beach below. Quite remote and never crowded, Ruby Beach is a wild place where the sand has bits of crushed garnets which can give a pink tinge to the sand in a colorful sunset. Toting many pounds of camera gear, the walk down was a snap, but the trek back up to the parking lot was a ‘walk-a-ways and rest,’ routine for me (asthma is no friend to hikers) but the views are worth the labor getting down and back up. Take a picnic lunch and sit on a log, or sit in the sand and soak in the beautiful view which will delight the eyes, ears and soul.
