Originally the plan was to go to Red Top on June 13th, but the area has been closed down for the past 3 weeks due to police activity (fugitive manhunt). So now we’ll be going to Saddle Mtn which is the trip I had to cancel in April. There is no hike involved here. A high clearance vehicle is recommended. I generally take my Santa Fe SUV with no problems, but the road is a rough ride going up to the dig sites. This is BLM land, so no special pass required.
Meet at the Shell Station 9:45, 723 Government Road, Mattawa, WA 99349.
Group will leave promptly from the meeting point at 10:00 AM.
From Renton, it’s approx. a 3 hr drive (155 miles).
Petrified Wood – Bring digging and hard rock tools, buckets, sturdy shoes, lunch, and plenty of water.
