Took off with some buddies to Chehalis for a little summer camping and wheeling . Also did the wheel/hike on the old road to Statlu lake and hiked the trail up to lake and falls.

Was another wicked day in BC thats for sure. Was actually surprisingly good weather except for the Squall that came ripping thru late afternoon Saturday :whistle: Wind gust about 100km/h and rain like hail spitting sideways ...was mayhem , tents flying , tiki bar falling apart ...goood times were had [cheers] [cheers]

enjoy the pics/Movie for all you web wheelers ;)

Movie of the run to Statlu lakes, bypasses and washouts (the last sequence is in the middle of the storm!!!! - NUTTY )

Cheers guys.

From camp with wheelin to the first bridge out (bypass made now) , at a slow pace with breaks 1h 1/2. I wanted to push it but had some "out of shapers". Could be done in 1h, 25min wheel and 35-40min brisk hike.

There is also a New 6km trail from the left at the clearcut on Mystery crk, 2km from Chehalis
