Beautiful Autumn colors were reflected in Willapa Bay, near the little town of Raymond Washington. We stopped here Wednesday for a picnic lunch on our way south.
The Willapa Bay watershed covers an area the size of Rhode Island and includes forested hills, fresh and salt waters, and towns along the rivers.
Four different rivers flow into the Bay. Average rainfall here varies from 65 inches along the coast to 140 inches in the hills. (So that is why we are heading South.)
