I had a chance to drop by the Elwha River again and check up on the stumps on the exposed bottom of the no-longer Lake Aldwell. The winter storms have come and gone since they removed the dam, but things don’t look all that different from last September. The river channel has probably shifted a bit between the benches of sediment, and the stump in the photo has surely moved. The loggers didn’t cut it at that angle. I’m surprised that it still has a sediment cap despite being out in the current.
