Re: Mt Defiance/Starvation Ridge -- 09/09/21

I suspect it must be gated. I'd be surprised if us common folk are allowed to drive that road.
There was a closed gate at the Warren Lake trailhead 3-4 years ago but more recently it is no longer attached. I've never felt like testing that road vs my CR-V, it looks pretty rocky.

Re: Project Area Boundary signs on Wygant Trail

The offramp for Michell Point is completely blocked off. I don't know if you can get over there from the East side of Mitchell Point or not. I suppose if you were super determined you could hike into the area as it is connected to the Mt. Defiance trail via Warren Lake.

Re: Happy Birthday!

Just off the trail going up to Rocky Butte by the Badger Creek Wilderness. Darned thing is so old it was falling apart when I unburied it.

Re: Gate Creek mystery

It is, funny how I tend to miss the most obvious answer. :lol: In any case it was an interesting place to go wandering around. I tend to look at a lot of those little creeks around that area that run mostly year round and take it upon myself to see where they come from.

Gate Creek mystery

I like to do a lot of off the beaten path exploration but I don't often post about it. Some of the things I have found I don't really want to advertise and others... well technically I shouldn't be there. This instance doesn't really fall into either category and I am a little curious if anyone can ...

Re: Silver Star Mt Backpack

Oh, okay. I was imaging a unicycle.

Re: High Prairie stream?

The one in the middle of the meadow on the way up to the old lookout was a couple of weeks ago but things have warmed up significantly since then. I was thinking of heading up that way and maybe out to Gumjuwac Saddle this weekend so if nobody else says anything I will post an update.
