    Taneum road #3300 is washed out and closed at Taneum Campground.
    Manastash Road #3100 is closed by the County just above Cove Road due to numerous severe washouts.
    Peoh Point Road #3350 is closed 2.5 miles up just before the big switchback due to a washout.
    THERE IS NO ACCESS TO BUCK MEADOWS, TANEUM JUNCTION, ICEWATER CAMPGROUND OR ANY OF THE TRAILS IN THESE DRAINAGES. IT IS HIGHLY UNLIKELY THAT THESE WASHOUTS WILL BE FIXED BY MEMORIAL DAY. PLAN ACCORDINGLY!
    Watch this website or call 509-852-1100 for information as it develops.

    I'm sure many other areas are in the same situation (i.e. Colockum, Chelan, Nile, etc...) :(: If the main roads are hammered, you know that the trails took a beating this year. :grim

    Anyone that is heading up the Colockum from the Wenatchee side may want to check out what's left as well.

    CCSO helo went up yesterday, deputy told me that Ingersol Rd isn't there anymore. Didn't get a chance to ask about the rest of them.
