Lake Valhalla, take 2

Two years ago, we were trying to hike to Lake Valhalla in Washington. What I didn’t mention in the post is that we didn’t find it. This time round, we were told we had to take a small gravel road off the interstate to reach the intended trailhead. And indeed, we found the lake:

Coming up for Air

We went to Queen’s Bath, not expecting to stay long as the waves are too dangerous for swimming in winter. The last path down was muddy, slippery and steep, so we thought we’d just take a few pictures from above and move on. I noticed stuff floating in the water but didn’t pay much attention to it — until “stuff” started poking out its head. They were Honu, Hawaiian green sea turtles. We skidded down and spent at least an hour taking pictures:

Wir fuhren zu Queen’s Bath, gingen aber nicht davon aus, lange zu bleiben, weil die Wellen im Winter zu gefährlich zum Schwimmen sind. Das letzte Stück des Weges war schlammig, rutschig und steil, so dass wir einfach ein paar Bilder von oben machen und dann weiterfahren wollten. Ich sah Zeugs im Wasser herumschwimmen, fand das aber nicht weiter spannend — bis das “Zeug” seinen Kopf aus dem Wasser steckte. Es waren Honu, grüne hawaiianische Meeresschildkröten. Also schlitterten wir doch bis ganz runter und blieben bestimmt eine Stunde, um Fotos zu machen:
