      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Darrington's Squire Creek is on fire!

Recommended Posts

On the north side of Jumbo mountain across the valley from squire creek. Ranger station knows about it and is regularly monitoring it. When I hiked out on Tuesday a ranger had put up a sign that mentioned they might close the trail for safety.

Lets hope this upcoming rainy week puts it out. It would be a shame to loose the great old growth that still grows high in that valley.

Thanks for the update. Will be interesting to see what's still smoking up there after this rainy stretch. Wonder if the FS will send a crew up there to mop things up so it doesn't kick up when the weather dries out?

Take THAT you fire you! I think we got about 5" rain yesterday or so it felt

Good for the fires, not so much for the road repair project?

Hopefully they will do "emergency repairs" to the road, which typically are good enough to be permanent.

Was there a road repair project in progress, before the fire?

 

Just the ford on the Clear Creek side (FS 2060) that Mark replaced. He was hoping get going the weekend it dumped.
