What about Naches or Manastash Ridge?

I'm busy for the next few weeks as well. Certification test in mid-May and behind at work. 2nd half of May sounds good though...

Naches/Manastash still might be snowy, but if you can get a report from there, it would be cool. I'm still interested in going back to Greenwater since the only time I went is when we got stopped by snow.

Is that the Gallagher lake trail outside Roslyn? Whatever trail I went on with Moe and Troy. Wouldn't mind trying to make it up there again too, beautiful area.

Well looks like the kid (I'm still trying to name him Optimus prime) may be born this weekend. If I'm a good hubby and do more than my share until the end of may I hope to come out then.

Those places sound fun!

There is no way you'll be able to get thru Manastash ridge right now. That is over 6,000'. It'll be July before anything that high will be passable. The Naches wagon train trail itself is officially closed every year until July 15.

The naches area off of 410 on the other side, is lower elevation and will be accessible sooner. You can probably get to funny rocks/moon rocks in June, maybe a little sooner.

Looks like I'll be postponing that Imnaha trip Mike; you may beat me out there...

Talked to the ranger; Highway 39 is still impassable and Lord Flat is closed. Think I may head out to Crater Lake this weekend.

That will probably have an insane amount.


I went up there in the car one year when I was in college and it spooked me out - sky was totally grey, snow all over, somewhat low visibility. Just unsettling.

Then again, I have some paranoia of being in places where I feel like I'm all alone and I'm closed in somehow, or I can see 'too far'. Very hard to explain, I get the feeling in large open fields as well. Best example that I know of is at Fort Klamath. Google street view doesn't do it justice, you just have to go there and think about what I'm saying.

I'm putting up some videos tonight, but I wanted to show this video here to give you a summed up idea of difficulty levels and what the trails will be like.

The first part is a trail called Cedar Tree, which is marked blue for medium difficulty. The hardest parts will be narrow turns, which you can see at 1:00.
At 1:30, the video shows the upper portion of Firebreak 5. Depending on condition of the trail, the difficulty varies. It's a black (hard) trail, though this portion isn't too bad. At 2:00 is the midpoint of that trail, and you get an idea of what a black trail really is.
At 5:00, we get to another blue trail called Ample & Alluring, but I'd just about rate it a green trail. It's steep as hell, but there's nothing else to it.
The night run is a separate trail and it's too dark to really give you an idea of much.
