AJ, you're having way too much fun on that big bike. Those Bennitt pass area pics bring back a lot of memories. My buddy worked in a warehouse back in the day so he would fill up his truck bed with wood pallets and we would drive up to Bonney Butte via bennett pass and build these big ass (non-indian style) fires. Followed by a good open flame steak and potato dinner. I can taste it now...

Road a loop last weekend up behind bagby HS on NF-7010 going up and over into the mollalla drainage and found a new washout from this season. Pretty steep down and up into the pit but borderline doable with a little bike, the alternative workaround for this one, coming from the bagby side, would be 40+ miles.

A year ago tells you nothing about a possible washout,
but it was a good gravel road with just a few bumps early last year.
the potential washout on still cr is a non-event either way. The workaround was less than a 1/4 and no pavement involved in the workaround. I would wager it's fixed by now given the location next to the hwy.
