Elwha Valley Rain Clouds

Elwha Valley Rain Clouds

Being a ridge or two away from the Hoh Rain Forest in Olympic National Park, the Elwha Valley still gets its fair share of rain. Not anywhere near what the westside valleys get, but still enough that there’s plenty of water. Going for a day hike, it’s always prudent to carry some raingear, regardless of the forecast.

This photo is taken at the point the road is closed due to the washout. The building in the distance is where stock is kept during the summer months. In the old days, this was the location of the Elwha store and gas station.

      1. Yes, we did. 17 miles in one stretch at the end of a long backpack, as I recall, with the thought of pizza dancing in our heads.

  1. In the fifties we’d stop there for gas after a fishing trip. A tame deer was always nearby. It would come right up to the car window. But somebody shot it.
