Road Trip to Olympic National Park (Part 4): Sunset at Rialto Beach

June 19, 2013

“The beach is a good spot for spending that transitional hour between day and night as the waves roll up and slide back, tugging out some of a busy day’s wrinkles.”
— Sonny Brewer, A Sound Like Thunder

Sunset at Rialto Beach, Olympic National Park

Sunset at Rialto Beach, Olympic National Park

“O wise magician to whom shall fall the task of chronicling this extraordinary sunset, this turning of the world to show the sun’s face as never before.”
— Cervantes, Don Quixote

“To find the feeling of infinity on the horizon line . . .”
— Georgia O’Keeffe

Nature’s own show — the setting sun — rivaled any National Geographic special on television.  It was a fitting end to our first day of sightseeing in Olympic National Park.

  1. What a spectacular sunset you were able to witness

    • Rosemary Says:

      Yes. I suppose every sunset is spectacular, but we just don’t take the time to pause and observe unless we are on vacation. What we miss every day!

  2. Chris Says:

    Beautiful!!

  3. Karin Says:

    Those pictures from the seaside – sigh. Sunset at the sea – deep sigh. Living far away from the sea that those beautiful pictures let me feel a longing for travelling.
    Thank’s for sharing.
