Rain Forest Horse Rides (FB) — The Olympic National Park is requesting public comments on a plan to move the Enchanted Valley Chalet away from the Quinault River, which has undermined its’ foundation and put it at risk of falling into the river.
Citizens from all over America have joined together to provide funding and professional house-movers to save this beloved 2-½ story log structure, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.
The ONP is requesting public comment on the plan to move the chalet. Their goal is to move the chalet, but with the plan to later dismantle it at great cost to the taxpayers.
We support the plan to move the chalet, but very much OBJECT TO DISMANTLING AND DESTROYING THIS HISTORIC CHALET. Because of its’, location fifteen miles into the wilderness of the ONP, the chalet has been historically utilized for shelter from storm, storage of back country equipment and a staging area for ONP research teams, emergency first aid/evacuation and fire suppression.
Please take the time to submit your comments to save the Enchanted Valley Chalet.
