I hiked Washington section J during 8-13 Aug 2012, taking the Waptus River / Hyus Lake alternate route

I experienced no major problems. A few easily-crossed patches of snow the first ~15 miles north of Snoqualmie Pass. Some blowdown in places, but only a few that were somewhat difficult. Trail severely overgrown with brush in places, most notably coming down ridge before Walpus River – need to take care there not to slip off trail and down steep slope while avoiding brush.
