What a fascinating article. As I was reading this I was wondering if the workers have been affected by the shutdown. I hope not.

What an experiment to restore a whole watershed. With the river now flowing freely, the legendary salmon runs — blocked for a century — have begun a tentative return to the Elwha’s 70 miles of salmon habitat, much of it in Olympic National Park. It is the dream of restorationists to bring back these extraordinary fish to the Elwha., which is full of old growth forests. Sounds amazing now!
Thank you Cal for this informative article.

Thanks for the post. Letting the river run is the right decision.
