River cut near the historic Chalet - 201205LJW

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

JAM_3577 Several years ago the Quinault River cut a new channel within a few meters of the historic Enchanted Valley Chalet. The chalet was built in 1930-31 for the Olympic Recreation Company by Tom E. Criswell and his son Glenn, about 13 miles (21km) from the nearest road access. It was a popular destination for hikers and horse tours through the 1940s. The chalet was restored in 1983-84 by the Olympians Hiking Club of Hoquiam. During early 2014, the river actually undermined the west side of the building.

Larry, Thank you for the history of the chalet. It is always nice to learn about what we are looking at. Is there an old Anderson cabin too? Like #4. Best wishes, Dave and Laurie
