Some places around where I live.
Silver Falls (East side of Mt. Rainier)
Goose Lake (Gifford-Pinchot Forest)
Pallisades (South East of Rainier)
Rialto Beach (Pacific Ocean west of the Olympics)
Creek running into the Little Nisqually (West of Rainier)
Ohanapecosh River (East of Rainier)
Of course one must drive a little to get to the best places. A fine excuse to put some Floyd in the player. Makes for something good to hum when hiking the trails. 8^)
