Oh wow, yeah that is strange that it was stolen out there. You see any good sign near olo? I'm set up more west of it.

They just closed granite falls gate today due to "forestry activity" until further notice

Yeah I saw that, I got all my cameras out yesterday not knowing that they were going to close it. Hopefully they aren't messing with my area...

Talked to a guy yesterday that called Weyerhaeuser on Wednesday to ask questions and confirm info and he was told that there was a "near miss" with a log truck and a recreation user(dumb---) from Tuesday up there and said there probably gonna close it for awhile they are always logging and working up there just happens this way I guess they did this 3 years ago I think and didn't let u in tel first of October when they slowed down a little but we all need to email and call to try and have it open on the weekends

Yeah,  I have some cams up there. Emailed them today they said it would probably be shut down for two months. I told them I appreciated the advanced warning... (sarcasm)

Not happy with the closure as I live a few minutes away from the granite falls site and that was mostly the reason I purchased the pass. 1 week in to bear season, sorry! Closed!. Fml. I emailed them, they expect it to be closed for approx 2 months.  :bash:

Happy I didn't buy a permit this year.  Sorry for those that did.  Not sure what exactly they expected to happen when they gave out 600 permits.  I wasn't happy when they sold out last year and then sold 200 more then this year 200 more and the price went up another $50.

Anyone who bought the permit I strongly suggest calling the admin or at least emailing her and voicing an opinion. I suggested, as well as a couple of friends are going to do, to close the east side of the permit area since that is where the logging is taking place and leaving the west side open for us to use. This should not be an issue as the road splits just inside the gate. She is going to bring it up to the manager and see if there is a way to compromise and allow us to at least get a little bit out of our permit this year.   I don't see why the guys permit wasn't revoked and that be the end of it, but they do need to look out for their contractors, themselves, as well as us permit holders.

The guys that are working up there haul some arse on those roads. We are required to go 20mph with lights on and these contractors are doing 50 around blind corners in their pickups.

Or at least let us up there on the weekends, could you post a link to whoever you are emailing as I will do the same.
I agree with steeleywhopper that the worst drivers are the loggers doing 45 mph coming out of there (not the log trucks).

The response I got...

We expect the area to be closed around 2 months.  We apologize for the inconvenience, but we do the closures for safety reasons when we have heavy traffic on roads.  We state in our permit that areas may be closed due to forestry operations.  The North Cascades Chelan permit area is 94,440 acres.  There are other areas you can still go that are not affected by a closure.

This is the exact response I got. Cut and paste... They obviously are not hunters.

That was her first response to me when I called. After I had given her a couple of suggestions about possibly allowing us to use the half that they are not logging, and did more than just complain, her tone changed to where she started asking questions and became a little more open about it all. This is the primary reason I wanted to call as well instead of only emailing.

While it's not great news, it sounds like a little bit of good news could come out later this week for us vehicle permit holders

Sounds like its going in the right direction. I hope it works out as I will be hitting all you fellow permit holders up for places, honey holes, etc.
