Washington Wildfires

Originally, we were going to take the 2 east but then a wildfire broke out closing it from Coles Corner milepost 84.75 to Leavenworth at milepost 99.

Then we figured we’d take the North Cascades Highway 20, until a fire broke out last night closing SR 20 east of Twisp in both directions from milepost 206 at Finley Canyon to milepost 215 at the Loup Loup Pass Summit.

For now, we’re going to stay east of the Cascades until the 20 opens up.

    Oh, hate to hear that. We are planning to take 20 east in maybe two or three weeks. Hope they get those fires under control soon.

      I hope that means we’re hanging out with you guys in 2 or 3 weeks. 🙂

    Just saw on FB that our friends that own the brew co in Twisp lost their house in that fire. Tragic. 🙁

    Those wildfires are always scary. The Royal Gorge Fire in Colorado the previous year had ash dropping on our house (just before we moved). Stay safe and hope those fires are put out soon.

    The kids and I just took the tour of the North Cascades Smoke Jumper Base (very cool and the birthplace of smoke jumping btw) The guys were pointing out the fire to the East of Twisp said its coming this way. It was 102 on Wednesday there.

    I’m hanging out at North Cascades NP hoping the fires get under control. Plans were to camp near Winthrop and Twisp; but now, I don’t know if that will be possible.

      Hey Pleinguy, from what I hear it’s still not contained. We’ve decided to wait it out for a month in southern WA. Safe travels!
