Too clean.

I see in that first picture that they have safely blocked all access to actually getting off the road to prevent you from driving over the dirt.

I lived in Washington for a few years and found that most property was privately owned and what wasn't was blocked off to prevent/reduce people from using/abusing it. The more land that got blocked meant that those people wish to drive off road were forced into smaller and smaller areas which caused additional wear and tear on the land. One exception to the private property locked was one of the local Indian reservations where I could off-road without driving an hour away. The tribal policed didn't mind so long as we didn't create a mess.

That was Hwy 2, Spada Reservoir area. The weekend before last there was too much snow to go where those photos were taken, but last weekend it had all melted off and I was able to follow the south shore road 'til it ended - wife was gone for the weekend.

yeah, it's off Sultan Basin road.. quite a few miles in. It'd be awesome to get a group together and hit those trails! If we did Reiter, it would probably be a good idea to round up someone with a winch. If we kept it "light" we should be alright.. just not sure of the trail condition after the recent storms, and there were about 5 or so winch recoveries that last time I went.

You are probably right. Reiters pits are more likely reiters lake after that 6 inches of rain last week.

there are no bikes on the bike rack, so why keep it on there when on the trail?
Why not keep it on, it's not in the way and I mtn. bike a couple times a week-- can't see taking it off just to put it back on?

i used to keep mine on the back, until one day on the trails i had to do a 3-point in a tight trail, and the bike rack was a big hassle. first i tried to do the u-turn with it on the back, and when that didn't work i had to get out and get muddy to remove it.

it's a once-in-a-lifetime situation, but after that one time, i never left it on the back when i didn't need it.
