Chinook pass closed FYI
« on: August 17, 2017, 12:44:20 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.

From milepost 84 to milepost 69
Gathering is easy. Hunting is a challenge.

It is closed due to clearing of fuel along 410.  The Norse Peak fire is at about 2200 acres.  there are a number of fires in the area.  Here is a good link to the fire.

Just got an update on inciweb - They've closed the Pacific Crest trail from White Pass to Government Meadows.  The fire is over the Union Creek fire line they had been working on.

They've also closed the 1902 from the 19 Rd. to Ravens Roost.  I'm beginning to squirm a little bit with my muzzy tag.  Was going to head up there with my son to do some scouting Thurs-Sunday but waiting to see what the updated closures are from the Forest Service.  Might just steer clear and go scout elsewhere.

I wonder if the fire made it over the ridge. It looked to be pretty well on the south slope west of Fifes Ridge on the map.

Not looking good at all;

Until August 28th, fire growth had been moderate. A weather event called a thermal trough moved over the fire on Monday August 28th, and combined with very hot and dry conditions, the Union Creek Fire and Fire #367 merged with the Norse Peak Fire. While the American Fire had moderate growth that day, the fires north of Highway 410 nearly doubled in size that day, growing north and east in the Norse Peak Wilderness.

I feel bad for guys with tags/seasons being affected by this fire, but I would be lying if I didn't say I was happy that wilderness is getting a cleaning.

It was a deadfall hell in there.

And it could still be dead fall hell post for too. Just go walk a burn in Idaho and you will get an idea.  Super bummed about these fires.

Looks like it's going to grow by another third. Getting pretty close to crystal mountain!
My interpretation of the rules are open to interpretation.
Once I thought I was wrong but I was mistaken.

At what point do they shut the woods down. Hopefully everyone camping and recreating this weekend is smart and responsible.
