Took a drive up toward Lilloette from North Bend, still too much snow at the higher elevations so we came back down to Nahatlatch and built a fire. Roasted a few hot dogs and headed back to the Wack.

It's the old Nahatlatch Rangers cabin, it's open for public use. It's kinda run down and needs some attention but a great place to camp if you can get it before someone else does. This is the first time I've seen it empty.
It's pretty much maintained (or neglected) by those that use it.

There was about 6 headstones that I saw. They are near Keefers, an old settlement along the CP rail line east of North Bend.
If you google Keefers BC. there is lots of intresting history from that area.

Last time I was through was 2 years ago for a 3 day trip..... Camped at Nahatlatch then drove the Kookipi to Clear Cr. and stopped for a soak in the tubs....Then down Harrison East and back home..... Awsome trip and beautiful country. Mostly FSR crusing with a few mild washouts, not much wheelin. The harrison side of the Kookipi FSR is grown partially over and frequently has water flowing on it so expect some slow going here with some BC pinstriping on the paint.
