I managed to get out Sat., Apr. 15th, for a short day trip on one of the few nice days that we've had in the last couple of months. None of my local guys were available to go, but my wife surprised me by saying "yes" when I asked her to come along. It's no easy task for her, as she's currently wheelchair bound by severe arthritis, but she put up with about 5 hours on the rough Chehalis Lake logging road, where we went in 35 km (about 22 mi) to the Skwellipel Creek Forest Service campsite, near the decade old rockslide that created a huge tsunami on the lake. We had a nice lakeshore lunch break before heading back out. One of the branch roads that heads west from the Chehalis main was gated with a very large and sturdy looking steel gate, so I couldn't explore up there, which I had hoped to do on this trip. We saw no interesting tracks, and zero wildlife bigger than squirrels and chipmunks, but it was a great day to be out in the woods.
