Nothing new to report on the Jeep "build". I got some new hardware to snap my cargo net in the back. Exciting stuff...
But we did take a camping trip! Tried a different layout in the Jeep, didn't need the cargo carrier on the hitch this time. Pics from the trip.
This area is about 2 hours from home; east on I90, then go to Roslyn and just keep going until you run out of road.
I think this is Huckleberry Mountain
On our way up, saw a Sage Grouse and about 12 babies crossing the road.
This is up a FS road 139, we were looking for some dispersed camping, found very little except beautiful views and steep cliffs
There was one great campsite up about 3400ft, but it sat right on a bluff that looked decidedly un-kid-friendly.
Mandatory Jeep Content
Came down the mountain back into the Cle Elum Valley, found a campsite on the ideally-named "Camp Creek"
Me and "The Boy"
Went hiking up FS Road 221, found some relics
And a collapsed mine adit
All in all, a good Jeep trip, just wish we had more time.
Also, the Jeep returned a dismal 12.5mpg for this trip, but that includes a lot of poking around exploring FS roads trying to find a site.
