    There is a lot of good access up Reecer Creek Rd and out Umptanum Rd, in the opposite direction - south of Ellensburg. Both of these roads are really just general dirt/ FS roads but if you're looking for some more technical 4x4 roads I am not too sure...Reecer would be my best bet?

    Lots of dirt out in Ellensburg, miss it. :cool:

    We did Lions rock in Early December. It was a good drive. Couldn't see anything at the top though because the fog was so thick

    Well while I was taking the 15 Minute drive to the end of salmon la sac I got a huge viberation and knew right then that my day was Over. I need to replace my driveline u joints this week. Next weekend I might go up but with this new snow I know its still going to have a long time until its open

    Bummer! I went up Elk Heights on the way back from from trip, I probably only got to 2600' or so, but no snow. It snowed like an SOB going over the pass though, so that helps w/ the snowpack, I guess

    Let me know if you want a 2nd rig up there in summer! I'm stock right now but by summer should have the thing more offroad worthy!

    Awesome pics!

    Let's all get something planned!

    I only work 8-11 days a month, lots of free time!

    I just discovered Manashtash last yr, it was awesome.

    My rig is still stock but oh well...
