Last time, we visited the Appleton Pass area of the Olympic National Park. Back when I was a kid, lo, these
many years ago, when the Olympic Hot Springs Resort and its pools still existed opposite Boulder Creek from
Boulder campground, our family used to car-camp at Boulder campground and swim in the pools. Not quite so
many years ago and after the Park management dynamited out the resort and concrete pools, I spent my
vacations roaming this area. Most of us think of August as being a dry month, but I've been rained in at Oyster
Lake for three days straight during the (calendar) month of August in two different years!
This time, we have another river for you. This time I expect not so many of you will quickly recognize the river system. When you've figured it out, please send me the names of each river, the location of the system, and any significant cultural information about the area, if any. Good luck!
