Alger Alp hike, WA


The Alger Alp hike is all on abandoned logging road, so it is an easy walk, terrain wise.  But it is all uphill to the summit, just over 2 miles of uphill.  It is amazing to think that at one time heavily laden logging trucks came down these roads!

Unfortunately, the weather never cleared, so the expected views were severely limited.  Nevertheless, we had a nice hike, d picked up a few geocaches along the way.

Start of the hike, with the destination (top of the hill) visible

Foxgloves provide some color alongside the trail

Half way up, still a ways to go to the top

We actually beat this local resident to the top

View from the top, limited by clouds

A view on the way back

We found a cache by the side of this creek
