Sol Duc River Hike, Olympic National Park - June 19, 2015

Sevenmile Footbridge Crossing - June 19, 2015
I woke up this morning at a little after seven o'clock. Craig and Charlie were up having a bite to eat. Anders climbed out of his tent at about the same time. We packed the wet gear and headed down the trail.

For about three hours, we hiked through old growth forest, primarily consisting of Douglas Fir. Anders and I hiked together. We entered a conversation regarding the heap of sand paradox that lasted for nearly an hour. New ideas were explored. Can anything actually be defined and agreed upon?

Sol Duc Tributary Crossing - June 19, 2015
We stopped at Sol Duk Falls for a little food and water, then passed many groups of day-hikers on the short walk to Craig's truck.

I changed into street clothes and we hit the road. After returning our bear cans at park headquarters, we stopped by Fat Smitty's Restaurant for lunch. My stomach rarely agrees with this treatment.

This hike was a great way to kick off the summer vacation. I would like to take it again and look forward to trekking through all of Olympic National Park.
