Me , the wifey and Mike and Keegs took off yesterday to explore Chehalis West (Skwellipil) and Wilson Lake http://www.bcjeepclub.ca/Smileys/default/wootrock.gif

Good day wheeling with some tough spots up Wilson Lake , ALOT of big washouts . Got stopped about 1.5k from the lake at a huge WALL of rock , impassable http://www.bcjeepclub.ca/Smileys/default/taunt003.gif

Swellipil Rec site is awesome! tons of sites and wicked beach spot on Chehalis. It is a shame what the slide did to most of the beach spots though!
We then had a fire and a bbq on Statlu creek to end the night!
Thanks to Keegs and Mike for coming out!

We tried our hardest to push our rigs, but got stopped at slide with rocks the size of vans. Figured we were about 2k from the lake and nobody felt like walking
