 :chuckle:  but looking at how things are progressing.  This precipitation helped a whole bunch.  There is a good couple mile stretch up from bumping road that the fire burned right down to 410.

Driving is the distraction in the mts. :chuckle: coffee in 1 hand, slab of bacon in the other, knee on the wheel and head staring out the window watching for critters. What can go wrong? :chuckle:

Driving with you sounds like a party. Anyone who drives around with slabs (not slices) of bacon in their hands is bound to be good people.

The trick is to fool everyone you pass on the way to your spot so they think you're just road hunting and they won't follow you. Then you hit your spot and park and begin the hike, slay a monster and drive back all the while they think you road hunted and are lazy and dont think none the wiser. :chuckle:

Some places I've been are like that. Animals hide in plain sight and a quick hike reveals them all. Guy's drive by going deep and steep miles away, and have no clue a nice buck/bull are right there. :chuckle:

I've seen that happen before with hike not involved, spike buck hanging with does. Everyone driving by not glass there heads, us high school guys weren't fooled, we glassed and our buddy got his first buck. :chuckle:

Just pulled this off the DOT Pass website.  Sorry if it happens to be old news then just disregard.

Chinook Pass will reopen to thru-traffic at noon on Thursday, Sept. 21. Fire crews are completing operations along the highway and pending more inspections will tentatively reopen Thursday at noon. Please drive cautiously as fire crews will be monitoring areas along the SR 410 corridor.
