On the Road – Olympic National Park Fall

We finally got the finishing touches on the latest PAPA TV, On the Road episode – Olympic National Park Fall.

We had a lot of fun putting this one together. We spent the night at the Lake Crescent Lodge and really enjoyed our stay there. The fall foliage was excellent in the Sol Duc River Valley, we got to see a bobcat hunting salmon at the Salmon Cascades. Hung out at the Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort and finished our trip at the Sol Duc Falls.

Ross Hamilton was great, giving us tips on photographing the fall season in these amazing areas. This man really loves the peninsula. After photographing this area with a large format camera for nearly 50 years, Ross unfortunately lost his eyesight to glaucoma. With help from his friends he gives talks around the peninsula on his photographic work in the park and around the Olympic Peninsula. He is truly inspiring. It was great working with him, as well as Elaine Cochran my narrator.

Hope you enjoy this adventure into the Olympic National Park …. we did!

On the Road – Olympic National Park

We are currently filming our next episode of the On the Road series, in association with PAPA TV of Port Angeles, Washington. This next film highlights the shoulder or Fall season of the North Olympic Peninsula, specifically the Olympic National Park.

We will be encouraging folks to come to the peninsula during the fall after all the crowds have left for the summer to explore the beauty of the fall season.

Our focus in the park will be Lake Crescent, Storm King, the Lake Crescent Lodge, and Marymere falls. We will then travel to the Sol Duc River valley. There we will stop at the Salmon Cascades to watch the Coho salmon return to spawn, with a bobcat thrown in! We will highlight the beauty of the fall foliage, stop at the Sol Duc Hot Springs resort, and finally end up at the trailhead to the Sol Duc Falls.

Along with Elaine Cochran, Ross Hamilton whose large-format landscape photography has been appreciated on the peninsula for almost 50 years, will give tips and insights to photographers coming to the peninsula.

Here are some frame captures we have already filmed. This episode should be released right after Christmas or New Years. Stay tuned!
