Late last fall that loop around Lost Lake Butte was open all the way through to Lost Lake Campground. I Mountain Biked it with a freind staying at LL Campground, then went back to drive it with the family. It is paved (rough, but paved) about halfway down from LL.

We were late starting today on our Lake Branch tour, and the Tacos were calling us or we would have done that loop too!

Around Lost Lake Butte? Are you talking about the semi closed Jones Cr. road?

Yes! The earth block is now gone from the gravel side that parallels Lolo Canyon (it was blocked about two miles South from LL Road), and the gate at the end of LL Campground was open that week anyway, very late fall after entry fees to LLCG were done for the year. That Jones Creek Road had been brush cut even.

I'm very curious if the gate at the top is still open/closed. I fear it must be locked now to avoid any "free" entry to LLCG.

Putting around Stevens Pass

Found the east end of this old tunnel


There is still a old growth tree out there


Had to take a little walk in tech 8s from here


But what a view of Lake Ethel


Now almost back to Lake Wenatchee

Slate Peak north of Mazama

Slate Peak Road is the highest road in Washington state. 7488ft.



It is gated just below the lookout though.


Some of these guys were watching me hike.


Some vistas to take in.

I'm having a difficult time figuring out why I like living in the PNW. Keep posting pictures I might get it figured out yet.
