Upper Queets River Road

Road to the Upper Queets

We had a trip to hike the Queets River trail (Olympic National Park) planned for several weeks. The summer had been dry and the river was low. That’s important since the first thing is to ford the river. Most of the year, the trail is inaccessible.

But of course, it is the rain forest … and so the day we arrived the river had just peaked at three times the “safe-to-ford” level. But the drive in was worth it… with mists in the forest, and elk crossing the road, and hardly anyone else around.
