John Gerberding and Jeff Thompson organized an early summer hike with some of the crew who originally hiked the Elwah 30 year ago and 15 years ago. It was great to see the upper damn blown out – which caused the road to the trailhead to wash out about 6.5 miles downstream. We benefited from this because few people were actually hiking into the river valley, just up to the dam and back so we felt like we had the entire Elwah to ourselves (with the wildlife!). Patrick Boyer came in from Arizona and John Dossett came up from Portland. Also on the trip were Greg Latimer, Ralph Murray, John Gerberding, Jeff Thompson and myself.
