On day 3 of the 7 Lakes loop. Saw bear, a goat and a couple of golden marmots. Used ice axes a couple of times between Hoh Lake junction and Lunch Lake. Thick fog at the summit- not much to see.
We took a three-day weekend for a hike up to the High Divide, and the views from on top of Bogachiel were amazing!
Walked up to the viewpoint on the High Divide loop.
Date approximate. Spent the night at Deer Lake on the way up from Sol Duc, then over Bogachiel and back down past Heart Lake. Extremely rewarding hike. I haven't been back to the Olympic Peninsula since this hike. Gotta get back there someday.
Physical high point of a backpacking loop trip.
Good place to sit a spell in october..just saying
8.5 hours round-trip. We went up past Heart Lake and down past Deer Lake for the loop. Saw 10 goats on the ridge.
Beautiful day...still lots of snow around
Crossed the peak on a 2-day trip with my father. We started at the trailhead in the Hoh valley and finished at Sol Duc. Met a black bear close to the peak :)
Great viewpoint of Mt Olympus
