Found a satellite picture of the pit (center of page)

maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&ll=45.13467,-122.1821&spn=0.034331,0.069523&t=k

Google Earth, just C&P "45.13467,-122.1821" and it will find it.

About 3 miles in from the bridge on the Forest Service Rd is a 'Y'. Stay to the right.
About 6 miles in there is a road the goes to the right. Stay going straight.
The pit is 6.8 miles in fron the bridge. Take it carefull on the road. It's a one lane with turnout and MANY blind corners.

I know you guys are not into PR or logistics.

But when trying to get people to a place they have never been before it's best to post full directions to get rid of any doubt.

Esp. for the guys from WA coming!

From WA: I-205 South, take exit for Hwy 224 East to Estacada

From the south: I-205 North, take exit for Hwy 224 East to Estacada

When in doubt, Mapquest is your friend.

How about some GPS coordinates? This time of year (snow) wouldnt it be better to take Hillock Burn Rd?

Echo Chamber
Stand on the round marble stone in the center of the small amphitheater, face the steps and speak. You will be amazed at what you hear.

Yeah, us dumb Warshintoniuns couldn't find Melamoose if it bit us. Of course, I myself will be going to MEMALOOSE instead of Melamoose.

Hmm, you may be right, but the weather doesn't look much different fright now (as for forcasts that is)
I got the lat and lon as close as I could, hope this is right!






The trouble is that that area the weather changes hourly when the storms are brewing. I hunt just up from there near Ripplebrook and those canyons have their own weather at times. I am sure we will be fine, just need to watch it. I really wish this was a summer shoot as the drive for me would be a breeze. Cut accross the pass by Timothy lake and I am there.

Please bring a shovel if you plan to build a small fire.. never know if any idiot left any duds on the ground. and if you have propane heaters it would be a good idea to bring them along. I have super Thermo under wear made by BSA so it should not fail me.

I'll probably bring my Sanford and Son special camper along ( no you cannot fill it with tannerite or proponse ) It will be a dry place for a few folks to hang if it's pouring. Of course my guns get priority on staying warm and dry
