    Access from the GW area was still closed last weekend. Looks like the FS plans to keep it that way for a bit.

    Got to right about 5000ft Sunday afternoon before I, too, turned around and slid down. I was on my DRz. Got a feeling that was about the last chance to get through this year, but who knows.

    After all this rain that is most likely snow above 3500 that is what I ran into at Chinook pass 2 weekends ago. I never made it this year but hope to in the spring.

    Heads up re:hunters...

    I rode colokum pass yesterday (lots of rocky fun) and there were at least 100 rigs up there, all hunters. And descending into Ellensburg I saw another 50+ rigs working their way up. Never seen so many.

    So I Elk season must be on this weekend, and I suspect 410 and roads leading to it will just as busy as colokum. You might want to check before heading up. I guess one can ride but watch for traffic and for hunters on quads and SxS

    Pleased to discover my post from 10/17 was wrong, and that I was able to do a nice big loop up there yesterday. No snow to speak of from GW up to the ridge from which you can drop down to FR52. Headed from there down to Little Naches, then back over FR70. Mostly dry except for a few slimy spots. Was on the V-Strom this time, with 80/20 tires. Get it while you can!
