    I just got back from the HOH rainforest in Washington. Spent four days in the woods :D .
    Our destination was to reach the blue glacier which was a mile and a half from glacier meadows (4300' elevation, 18.1 miles from the parking lot)
    By the end of the tirp we had hiked 42.2 miles :shock: .
    I filled up my little 256mb card in the first day :(
    anywhos, here's a few pictures from the trip..

    Those are some great shots. I'll bet that composite one would look great when blown up. It's a little dark in lower left corner though.

    My favorite is the 2nd one with the fog. I don't like the overhanging bits at the top of the frame but otherwise I think it's an excellent shot.

    Thanks guys :D
    I would highly recomend visiting the Olympic Park to anyone who likes the outdoors. Even if your not up for a large hike there is so much to see within easy walking range.
    heh, we are already planning a different hike in the same area :D

    Great photos, especially the #2 with the fog and trees. :shock:

    I have never made it up to Glacier Meadows before but have done a good bit of hiking along the river and beaches.

    Have you had a chance to dry out yet?

    hmm, are you referring to the rain, because we were actually quite lucky :D
    it only rained on day two, which lucky enough was the final leg of the climb, and without the rain im not sure I would have made it to the top :shock: . After that day of rain it was beautiful weather :D

    Have you hiked any other trails in the Olympic park? any suggestions? I heard the seven lakes trail is amazing.. or is it six lakes :wink:
