I think after a while you would not only get used to that, but you would welcome it as the only contact with another being you get all day. "Oh here's my bird friend, nice to see you again. I hope my liver is tasty today. Wait, stay! You can have my kidneys too if you stay a little longer! Please come back... I'm so very lonely..."

Was his name Icarus?

He was in a ska band. Not a big loss.

Was there a bolt of lightning just before he fell?

The better hike is from Dosewallops, through Enchanted Meadow, across Anderson glacier, and down the Queets. a four-day hike that's mostly flat and very scenic. It goes just south the Mount Olympus. It's a traditional father/son (guys only) summer outing for my family.

Was it getting Squatchy up there?

That sounds like fun. But four days? I'd need to do some preparation more than my 3 miles per day slow jogging.

Enjoy butchering your way through Greek Mythology.I know that I begin cackling like Mr. Burns after every boss fight. "He butchered him like a hog. LIKE A HOG!"

Trust me. That's not a difficult hike. You get your permit at the Hoh Visitor Center and off you go.

I think it's very pretty. The river runs milky blue due to the glacial scouring.

Did you go up above the ranger station at the treeline? Above that it's glaciers and crevasses, snow and a bit of a scramble up steep rocks to the top. It took us 3 days round trip, but we had a 6 and a 4 year-old with us. I could see how someone could fall from the last pitch up to the summit.

CSB Time: When I was in high school back in the late 80s, one of our teachers died over summer break right there. He went up Mt. Olympus, came down, and was almost immediately hit by a car and killed. The last picture taken off him, which they used in the yearbook's dedication page, was him holding a flag and standing on the mountain peak.
