    If you cant get out on a weekday I find you need to hit the hills early, I was on FS70 at 7:45 yesterday and did not run into anyone else until I was on Stampede pass when a couple of riders on Africa Twins went by going up.. I went down to Ellensburg and up and over to 410 and then back up Little Naches and by the time I went past that shooting pit the traffic was stopped and the forest service was out speaking to people and looked like they were taking pics of the haphazard parking? Went by a group of riders stopped on the side of the road where 7030 comes in, anyone here? I noticed a 1090 in the group... BTW whats up with Rabbits this year? I almost ran over 4-5 darting over the roads,seems like more than past years.. E.

    I can 2nd the crowds. I camped at Mazama on Friday near Winthrop, with the intention of camping near Diablo Lake but *everything* was filled by 4pm. Winthrop was poppin' but looked like just about everyone was wearing a mask, so thats great.

    Coming back along the 2, it looked like a mass exodus was headed east. If you plan on heading out for a weekend jaunt, I definitely recommend playing hooky on Friday instead of leaving on Saturday. I mean, you know, it's summer in the PNW, but now that everyone has rediscovered how awesome life is outside of a phone or bar, things are heating up.

    Planning to head out and explore the 90 to Greenwater area for the first time tomorrow. Airhead GS running Avon Gripsters. Experienced rider but relative novice off pavement. I've been combing through this thread for GPX tracks and suggestions; any good recommendations for my initial foray up there besides just up and over Stampede Pass? Thanks and maybe see some of you up there.
