Unfortunately I won't be able to head out this weekend, should have checked with my wife first:sweatsmile:. But keep the updates rolling, love to read what all of you are up to. Maybe we can aim to get something set up for one of the next weekends (smoke and fire allowing of course)?

It was good to bump into @parrotheadnw this last weekend on Lost Lake Road! I hope others were able to get out as well.
Looks beautiful. Which lost lake was this, I see a bunch on google maps :)
@Haris it is the one off of Stampede Pass (exit 62) near I-90. It's a popular spot as the road to get to it is easy (though it has a LOT of potholes). Going beyond the main road and the lake can get a little more interesting, though still not difficult for any decent 4x4. The FS roads I took beyond it were pretty overgrown, but still found some good views.

Awesome. I love the Lake Keechalus area. And so close to home too!

@outside.perception, it was so cool to run into you too. What were the chances? Great day to get out and emplore, but I had to cut my trip short and head home that evening becuase one of my ball joints was failing. Good news is that I caught the the problem before it became an actual problem.

And some time in June on LT Murray, the most hair raising trail I’ve been on yet - the section called “Divide” on Trails Off-road. Photos are of a 2ft rock ledge, and a narrow wooden bridge that you have to turn hard left onto and therefore can barely get your rear wheels on to for longer rigs.

Hit a few trails and planned on staying the night at the top of NF-4936 next to Kachess Lake. Pretty nice view from up there, but I was diagnosing the knocking sound and forgot to take a photo. @Harris, looks like you've had a couple fun adventures.

Hey @parrotheadnw - I'm looking around that area for my first trip out in my Element. Do you have coordinates for where you went? Looking at the map, it looks like you took a trail off the NF--4936. Would love to be able to find somewhere with nice views.
