Our main hike on this trip was from Toleak Park to the
Hoh River in the South Wilderness Coast. Hiking down the
coast while avoiding the tides and piles of sea weed
were new experiences. Other than a few sea gulls and
a slug we didn't see any wildlife to speak of.

Several places had ladders to get over the cliffs between
sections of beach.
One issue with beach hiking and camping is that our
gear and tent got quite full of fine sand and
water. Fortunately we'd planned a break in between
hikes that we could use to clean up and dry out and
with a few modifications the hotel's HVAC system
served us well.
Our secondary hike during this trip was the Big Beaver
Trail located above the Ross Lake Dam. It was beautiful
and thankfully uneventful, but once again the only wildlife
we saw were a few fish and a couple slugs.
