#flashbackfriday – We drove up to Tree Phones (4800′) in my 2 wheel drive GMC pickup on March 12 2005. Back before they made people buy a Discover Pass to be on State Public land. Notice there is little snow here March 2005? There were no summer closures in this year at the Ahtanum State Forest due to fire danger. Last year (2021) there was a lot more snow and the state closed all DNR Managed public lands in Eastern Washington due to a made up drought. Your $30 Discover Pass was worthless mid summer 2021 on DNR Managed Land in Eastern Washington. In 2020 these same state public lands were closed because Governor Inslee did not want to you to leave your home. Don’t believe the Leftist Fake Science lies! This is our public land, not the Governments.
