Gonna try and find a little snow tomorrow, FS Rd 75 out of Greenwater. Meet at Enumclaw Safeway to depart at 9am. Anybody welcome, if we get snow and you're in a stock rig you'll likely want to turn around and head back down. No clue what current conditions are.

I'd be curious to make another run up there in a couple weeks. I'd like to try to get to Lonesome Lake. You'd need your TJ for that though I bet. :thumbsup: It's another couple miles and probably another 500 ft higher elevation then where you got to on Sunday.

A day or two of fresh snow and I'd love to go back up there, in the TJ for sure.

All the way to the top. I wanna go again as well once it gets another hit of snow.

Well, apparently I didn't make it to the top. I know of no lake. lol I thought it was a loop where FS75 went up 8 miles to Holler Pass and then back down to FS74. We went the 8 miles in to top of pass.

Yeah Lonesome lake is our destination, you might have been there & maybe didn't see it due to the snow? Suppose to get some fresh snow here soon

I had never been, so forgive my ignorance here. :roflmao: Apparently we made the top of Holler Pass, which is approx. 8 miles in, but NOT to the lake. I thought the road from where we were just dropped back down to 74 but apparently winds back in there a bunch more towards the lake. I'd love to get back up there, but I'd take the TJ.
