After our trip up to Mount Olympus on the Hoh River Trail last year my Dad and I were ready to head back into the Olympic National Park. The Enchanted Valley is a huge valley nearly 14 miles up the  East Fork of the Quinault River. The valley walls are covered in waterfalls and right in the middle of the valley is an old Chalet that was built in the early 1900s. The building now acts as a backcountry ranger station and emergency shelter. It’s a pretty special place regardless of what time of year one hikes there.
