QUINAULT



Some twenty miles north of the Humptulips settlement lay the valley of the Quinault with its moss draped forest and its breath-taking blue lake, five miles by three, ringed about by heavily forested mountains.

In 1888, while the Humptulips Valley was being settled mostly overland from the south, Alfred Noyes came up the Quinalut River with the Indians, built himself a cabin (on what is now the Robert Locke place) and spent the winter of 1888-89 trapping. He was the first white settler.
