The south coast trail, Hoh River to Third Beach

These photos show a day hike from the Hoh up the Third Beach. As is not uncommon, the day started with heavy fog (an early start was required) and gradually cleared out. It is a bit over 20 miles, long stretches of beach interspersed with trails through dense forest over rocky headlands. Many more pix of the area here.
