Well a group of friends and I decided to take a day trip to Boston Bar.

Airing down at the the start of the Harrison East FSR

Waterfalls at Slollicum Creek

The bridge over Hornet Creek on the Kookipi FSR

Granite Falls

Came across a campsite that's tarp had fallen into the fire and was about to burn someone's gear, don't know where they were.. :confused0006:

So we did the best to cover all their gear before carrying on :fighting0071:

We were so close to making it to the Nahatlatch River FSR, but it looks like they deactivated the road for some reason.

We found on the backroads map book another trail that looked like it would join back up to the Kookipi, but after a few creek crossings it didn't appear to.

So we turned around and headed back

With nothing else to do, it was time for some poser shots! :D

Look at the flex on that left leg! :D

The Ranger seemed to be running a little hot which didn't make me happy

We had a bit of a cooling issue that threatened to ruin the trip, as it turns out the neck on the radiator developed a crack right at the seam, but a quick trailside repair and she was back up to snuff!

some more random pics of the ride out.

I was really shocked to see the trash left behind at the campsite by the bridge right after the first Forestry camp. Some people have no respect go fuck yourself

I was really shocked to see that Cogburn beach turned into a tourist Mecca $10 a night to camp now

But there are plenty of garbage cans & porta potties there now, so hopefully it doesn't look like a dump after long weekends.

All in all it was a really great day trip. Definately will have to try it again after the road is re-opened! [cheers]

Here's a few vids of the creek crossing.
