Great read. I just stumbled upon this website while looking up Kanasket-Palmer state park.

Speaking of mountain passes, do you know if Forest Service road 54 is accessible, by car. I know it starts on the west near K-P state park, and then goes all the way to Ellensburg, It might be blocked off though.



You can not access FS road 54 from the west side. City of Tacoma watershed has it blocked. But you can get there from the east side by taking Stampede Pass. Search my blog for the ghost town Lester and you will find more information. Beautiful area.
