Very brief OP report. Say no to the Hoh, Sol Duc didn't suck.

    Made a suicide run out to the OP yesterday, getting home after midnight. (Props to the Girlfriend, who refrained from torturing me for waking her up.) The Hoh is in pretty rough shape. Fairly high, and LOTS of snow melt, w/ very low visibility. Upper Hoh section was overrun w/ turistas. Said hello to Clark Griswold and family, and split. Ran over to the Sol Duc which was in very nice condition. Fished over by Sappho. Busted brush to get down to a section I've never been to before. Very pretty water, but could have used a machete getting out. If anyone heard a voice from the woods muttering, "I'm too old for this shit" that was me. Truth be told, it was a lot of fun.
