Backcountry Horsemen

Loading up
In Camp

Recently took a 5-day backpack trip up into the Olympic National Park. When we got to the Dosewallips River trailhead, there were horses and mules being loaded up. We expected they were going on a pack trip across the park. Later, we talked to them in camp our first night … they were volunteers from the Backcountry Horsemen, taking tools (chainsaws and brush cutters) and fuel in for a volunteer group from the Washington Trails Association working on the N Fork Dosewallips and Graywolf Pass trails.

This is part of the Dosewallips Elk herd that hangs out in the Brinnon area on the east side of the Olympic Peninsula. I found them relaxing in the Dosewallips State Park campground.
