I read a comment or two about viewing the Rut in the ONP and would like some more detail on timing and location. We recently moved to Port Orchard and are retired, so we can make a one or two day trip out, mid-week. The only week we can't go is the week of Sept. 24.
Someone mentioned a river with a north and south road, would this be the Sol Duc river near LaPush? With two days one night somewhere, shall we just drive the southern route to LaPush then back home, or should we make a loop starting with the northern route through Port Angeles?
Fortunately we can plan many future trips to the area, Hurricane Ridge is a must next year, but seeing some animal activity in the next few weeks would be fun.
