  •  The trick with this one... (1+ / 0-)

    ...is to stay high on the ridge and let the river come up to you.  The hard part is the bushwhack down the final drop toward the river.  There are some old logging roads that drop down through some re-prod, but they are actually harder going than hiking the ridge.

    My stepdad used to grow marijuana out here (he died two years ago, so he can work out the legalities with his Creator).  He used to bring my brother along and they'd fish the river, so I have a guide who knows the route.

    I'm used to doing cross-country traverses.  This is the first time I'll have the benefit of a GPS.  I'm gonna take waypoints.
