Mrs AJ (now Mustangshelly) and I took a good ride Saturday up to Laurance Lake above Parkdale,
and then past it (probly for the LAST time) way up to it's end at Pinnacle Ridge trailhead.

This is one of the sections that'll be part of the new "Hatfield Wildlife Preserve"
as an excuse to close this up and back forest road that gets you up so close to the base of the Hood.

No views from this road, just a gravel cruise through the forest.
It's just a fairly boring up-n-back, so it's closure does not bother me much,
and it's already adjacent to Wilderness.

It'll keep some of the Subarus and Priuses from dusting up this beautiful section of forest.
At the trailhead to Pinnacle Ridge, that's what it was.
4 Subarus, two Priuses, and a VW "Westfalia" Camper top Van. Fucking Classic.

On the other hand, if it has been logged or mined and roads already exist,,
...then that land should be open for public use" (peterman)
