Upper South Fork Skokomish to Camp Riley

Frog eggs
We started our hike at about 11:30, ah the long days of summer.  We were tired by the time we made it to Camp Riley so we made no attempt for the summit.  Patchy Snow started at Camp Riley.  Lots and lots of frogs eggs at Camp Riley.

Trail is in pretty good shape after winter.  All the same bridges are still out.  Fording the Skok 2 miles in was easy enough, but we did have to remove our shoes.

About 11 miles with about 1900 feet elevation gain.

These eggs are in danger just like they were last year in this same spot
