Chinook pass closed FYI
« on: August 17, 2017, 12:43:32 PM »
SR 410 Both Directions - SR 410 Chinook Pass is closed between milepost 84 Hell's Crossing westbound, and just east of the summit milepost 69 eastbound, due to a brush fire. This closure may possibly be over next few days as crews work to contain the fire and remove potentially hazardous trees along the highway.

Does this block access to bumping Lake?  I don't know how far down mile post 69 is.  Thanks.

Yes. I think 69 is right near the lookout by the summit.

It's closed from the east side at mm 84.  Bumping is mm 89. You can get to bumping from the east side. No problem
Just because you believe something is true doesn't mean that it is true!

Shouldn't ruin any plans unless that's the exact spot you are going to.  123 is still an option

:yeah:

Bumping is still reachable.  You have to take a detour coming from the west side, but no problem from the east.  It's just pleasant valley and the southern access to Norse Peak Wilderness that are off limits.

Reaching Bumping from the west would take an extra couple hours though with the detour on 123. 

I got to see this fire the night before they shut down the road.  It was a sight, for sure.

Thanks.  I never make it that far around but was curious.  Normally 123 to 12 and near the crest.

There is a level I evacuation alert in the bumping, goose prairie region.

Anyone have pictures ? I don't know this area and I hunt wetside in a non fire area. But forest fires fascinate me so just curious!

Only one I got.  My roadside cellphone low-light photography skills aren't the best  ;)

FWIW, I'm glad to see a fire in this area.  I've been hiking there a few times recently and it was definitely overdue.  Based on the fuel level on the forest floor, I'd be surprised if we don't lose a lot of trees, but it would have only gotten worse so I'm glad to see it.

Kinda cool to get to see a lightening-started fire in a wilderness area.  An impressively wild side of nature not many get to see.

Mom sent me a pic of both from the top of Chinook today. The fire in the William O. Is fairly active. Trail cam is probably burnt up or will be soon.
