The Elwha River, just west of Port Angeles, is another inspiration of nature. I took this photo while standing on the Elwha River Bridge. If I were standing in the same place today, I would be standing in mid-air, because the bridge is gone. A new bridge is currently under construction.
At this location, we are just a few miles up river from where the Elwha River empties into Freshwater Bay. This stretch of the river is also good for fishing. Upriver from this location about one mile is the lower Elwha River Dam, which is slated to be removed some day.
This is a great area for biking and hiking. On the Olympic Peninsula, it’s just another day in Paradise.
