Chalet in Olympic National Park to be relocatedAugust 29, 2014 @ 5:29 am
SEQUIM, Wash. (AP) -- Park officials say the Enchanted Valley Chalet in Olympic National Park is being relocated to protect the east fork of the Quinault (KWIH'-nawlt) River.
Enchanted Valley will be closed to camping for the first two weeks of September, while the move takes place.
Park officials say hikers and horse riders may continue to pass through the area if they are escorted by park staff.
The Graves Creek Stock Camp -- which is located near the Graves Creek trailhead -- will also be closed between Sept. 1 and 14 to accommodate stock animals and handlers transporting supplies and equipment during the project.
Monroe House Moving, Inc. of Sequim, Washington has been awarded the contract to move the building. Changes in weather could affect their schedule.
