Alpinejo.tripod.com: Backcountry Trails Guide

I had to move my site due to Tripods new policy of only providing 20 megs of
free space, my site currently uses the old maximum at nearly 49 megs. As you may
have noticed my site was also being shut down on a daily basis due to exceeding
Tripod's new bandwidth policy--but hey what could I expect for free. It was fun
while it lasted.
In the coming weeks I hope to release the new format of Alpinejo-Backcountry
Trails Guide with a new database and searching capabilities.
Thanks for visiting!

attempt: The weekend we chose was
darn-right nasty. There is
something about lacing up your
boots and strapping on the ole'
headlamp at 3am in an Olympic's
rainstorm (it rained 4+ inches
this day). My brother and I
enjoy hiking at night but this
night was pushing the limits of
enjoyment. The Hoh river had
risen up to the edge of the
trail- we sloshed our way in
knee deep water (on the trail)
out to where the Hoh River
meets the Pacific Ocean. At low
tide for the morning the Hoh/Pacific
Ocean were 5 feet from the
mainland headwall, there we
numerous slides that forced us
to walk out in the rising
current of the Hoh. So we bagged
this adventure and high-tailed
it to higher ground and headed
to Rialto Beach.
there is not a whole lot of
beach hiking it is mostly
rock/log scrambles. I would
not recommend this section of
beach hiking, there is just sooo
much rock and I really enjoy the
sand. I would recommend
the Third Beach South section.
sure to take your frisbee! And
don't forget put your gators on
before hitting the sand or you
will be sorry.
Hiking fee- $5, Overnight
backcountry fee $2 per night/per
