Coming back from Whatum, I actually prefer the PCT route over Eagle Creek. Of course, I like drier, alpine trails and views over river trails.

Thanks for the report!

At least the bear grass almost always survives and grows back quickly. And it looks like Benson Plateau mostly escaped.

KGW has some aerial footage
Benson Plateau looks unscathed at least.

Hope that newer bridge above Triple Falls survived and gets through the slides.

So much to hope for...
