July 18, 2017: Obstruction Point, Olympic National Park, Washington

From Obstruction Point, I went south on the Grand Pass Trail, which ascends slightly through alpine terrain before descending 1700' to Grand Lake. Then I made a loop of it by connecting with the Badger Valley Trail, which descends another few hundred feet along Grand Creek and then climbs 2000' back to the trailhead. Here's a map.
