Elwha Washout Bypass Trail

The Elwha River is one of the type examples of a river being returned to a wild state by the removal of dams. The river has shown it’s wild state by washing out the road in a couple places. To provide trail access there is a new trail that runs higher up along the hill. We went to take a look at the Elwha when it was in flood stage on January 4th. Quite impressive. The photo below shows one of the washouts (this is only one branch of the free flowing river).

I was going to carry other cameras, but with an expected 6+ mile hike, I opted for light weight.
