    Jim Osborn saved Bench and Snow Lakes Trail

    Beautiful fall colors and lots of opportunities for pictures. There are a lot of stair-like steps from 12-24+ inches both up and both directions. We were glad we brought our hiking poles. No bugs and light traffic in a Friday.

    We did this as a clockwise bike going to Camp Alava and beach hike to Sand Point on first day. Our route was determined to coincide with low tide and desire to camp at Sand Point. Not many folks at all but it was also pretty rainy weather.

    Petroglyphs were amazing. Also saw a large female sea lion on the beach and very large male on the rocks about 100 yards from us. A black bear was roaming the beach at Sand Point.

    We left Camp Alava about two hours after high tide and encountered several large trees to navigate under, over or around. Another hour and we could have just walked around them. It took about three hours for us to go from Camp Alava to Sand Point including some time at Wedding Rock to search for the petroglyphs.

    Water was readily available at Sand Creek and although it definitely had color to it after filtering, it actually was very acceptable for drinking even without adding anything to it.

    This was a beautiful hike in a remote area and we will definitely go back. As a side note, we found a lot of trash at several of the campsites at Sand Point. It was very disappointing to see the lack of respect some campers have for such a beautiful area. It was also a real eye-opener to see the large trash items washed up from the ocean -- mostly plastic, but also tires and even a row boat.

    In-your-face Rainier views, two crystal clear lakes, lots of wildflowers and a dry, sunny day. It was a very nice hike despite the crowd of people and the DUSTY road. We arrived about 8 am and only 20 vehicles or so. On the way down there were a lot of folks heading up and vehicles were parked a mile or so down the road. I would try to go on a week day if we do this hike again, but it was very much worth the streams of people. DEET is needed to discourage abundant bug presence.

    We took lower Elliott up and upper Elliott down. That worked out very good for us. Lots of great rushing water views on the way up and all of the waterfalls on the way down. The old forest cedar trees were amazing. Trail was in decent condition. Lots of muddy areas and small creeks so waterproof shoes were good to have. The lake was beautiful even though we had partial visibility of the peaks due to cloudy weather.
