    I take it then that the snow has all melted? It was so disappointing to get there and see thick snow covering the road making it impossible for us to get in, but then my past visits have generally been in June, July, August and great weather. I'll visit again for sure.

    I had thought the driving distance to get to the gate was 13 miles, but is it closer to 20 miles? Thought I saw a sign stating so that I didn't remember seeing on my previous trips to the area.

I have also gained access from the south using logging roads out of the Greenwater area. The river god whereever it wants to go up there. Roads are also sometimes gated, however this area is not water shed. GO AROUND the east side of Kelly Butte. By the way there is lots Mt sheep that live in the area.

    Remember when there is rain in North Bend its usually snowing in the higher elevations. Cleck with the pass reports before planning anything. Also its been a real hard winter up there. Good luck
    i lived in Lester with my family and uncles and cousins. our old tree houses are still there behind the two old houses. would love to see some old photos. our old tree houses are still there behind the standing houses we lived in
