10.7 miles of hiking • 2000' elevation gain • 1 night

The plan was to spend 3 nights up the Sol Duc River making base camp @ the Appleton Pass junction. From there we would day hike up to the High Divide & 7 Lakes Basin & than spend a day hiking up to Appleton Pass. Mother Nature did not cooperate as it rained steadily from the time we left the Sol Duc TH on 10/6 to the time we got back to our vehicle around 4pm the next day.
