Back to the Elwha
I spent the day today on the Elwha River, hiking in to this spectacular gorge, which lies less than a mile upstream from one of the two lakes - and dams - slated for removal next year, restoring the river to something like its natural state. Dam removal will take three years to complete - and untold years to evolve after that. I hope I live to see the river reborn - and salmon once again moving upstream for the first time in 100 years.
In the meantime, I'm off tomorrow for the high Arctic and will likely not be able to post anything for up to three weeks. Hopefully, I'll have a few pictures to share when I get home, however...
