Gl.Mead./Elwah Bsn.Trip 2A

Glacier Meadows/Elwha Basin (Part 1) -2001

In mid-July, 3 hikers and myself repeated a traverse that I had done previously in ‘89 (see note below). It starts at the Hoh Ranger Station and goes to Glacier Meadows.  It crosses the Blue and Hoh glaciers to Camp Pan. It then descends the Humes glacier, crosses the source of the Queets R., and climbs through Queets Basin to Dodwell-Rixon Pass. The route descends the Elwha Snow Finger, before finding the trail that leads to the exit point on the N. Fork Quinault R.
