Last Saturday I took a walk up the Dosewallips to break in the boots. For those that don't know, the road was washed out some years ago, so the walk is up the old roadbed up to the Ranger Station at, I think, was/is Camp Collins. The road is washed out about a mile below Elkhorn Campground. So, it was about 6 miles into the ranger station. It was a nice day, and I thought this old man would do it. If you are a family with kids, it would be a good hike. The old campground at Camp Collins is pictured and very nice along the river. I had been having a sciatic nerve problem for a good six months, got some therapy and excercises, and feeling great now, so I did the hike. I turn 64 next month, so it's good to know I can still get on the trail and look forward to getting in the mountains a few times this summer. Also, Dosewallips Falls is along the way as seen in the photos.
