An elk herd along Dosewallips Road before the washout

An elk herd along Dosewallips Road near Olympic National Park, WA

The valley following the Dosewallips River into the Olympic Mountains is a great area for camping, hiking, and biking.  Last November my husband and I spent one weekend yurt camping at Dosewallips State Park.  As we made our way towards the Olympic National Park Dosewallips Ranger Station, now abandoned due to a road washout in 2002, a large herd of elk crossed the road in front of our car.
