146 Parks is a photography and blogging project that I started in 2020 so I could continue exploring while long-distance travel was not viable. Though bigger travel is once again an option, I intend to visit, enjoy, and document all of Washington’s state parks.

Belfair State Park and recently-visited Twanoh State Park are like bookends at the south end of the Hood Canal. On this fall day, it was a great time for a walk along the coast and to enjoy moody cloudscapes.

As I’ve written before on this site, I find commemorations of white man’s “victory” over native peoples challenging to talk about. Even though this particular battle is considered a victory for the native side, we all know how this drama ultimately played out.

I so enjoyed my previous beach park visit that I came back for another on the next weekend opportunity. Griffiths-Priday State Park offers an opportunity to step back and let Mother Nature bathe you in sound and sights.
