I didn't know until I finished the hike, but I was not supposed to hike up this road to get to Fragrance Lake. Ended up working fine, but there was a more traily trail I could have taken, which had a spur with some overlooks.

salamander(?) or newt(?)

waterfall along the road

bridge over some skunk cabbages

Dicentra formosa (bleeding heart)

this is the trail that goes around the lake - it was in great shape.

yum. snail.

the lake in the middle is what i walked around. you can see the road that i hiked up and down, and the trail i SHOULD have hiked up and down.

I think this is trail #3 on the previous map. It was advertised as a beach hike, but I couldn't find my way to the beach. It should NOT be that hard.

This is a view from the road on the way in. I think they are the San Juan Islands

Taken from the road on the way in... it was really neat how the land was as flat as Delaware, and then all of a sudden there were hills.
