Rocks along the rocky shores of Ruby Beach

I plan to explore much of the Pacific Northwest this summer, and decided to start with a road trip to Olympic National Park. Located on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula, one of the park’s big draws is the proximity between the coastal beaches and rainforest. Ruby Beach was such a gorgeous discovery.

Rocky with a rugged stretch of coast, Ruby Beach reminded me a lot of the beaches along Big Sur, in California. It’s nice to know that same Pacific goodness stretches all the way up the coast.

Ruby Beach is pet-friendly, and many dogs were there and loving it. My two labs enjoyed sniffing the surf and got their paws sandy.

 Driftwood along the beach was a popular spot for visitors to build piles of rocks. The rockitecture was impressive.
