Rainier and Oly twitter page is where I have always gone to see if the road up Hurricane Ridge, and road to Paradise are open (essential when trying to go up in the winter). I'm speculating, but seems like an IT problem. Lot easier for them to quickly update their twitter page than their website.

Sounds like one of the guys who attacked our country on January 6th.

A note written by Chapman delivered Sunday to a person identified in the complaint by their initials “discussed Chapman’s grievances with the White House, his difficulty purchasing ammunition, and his belief that an imminent revolution would be occurring in the next 30 days, beginning in Texas and the Olympic Peninsula,” according to the complaint.

I just got back from spending 6 days in that area.  We went in Saturday. We hadn't seen another person since Sunday, In Cameron Basin.  Today around noon we finally ran into another human near Moose Lake who had heard some vague info regarding this (he was 18 days in and in need of a food drop).  I used my inreach to ask a friend WTF!  They told me the lowdown. None of our regular daily inreach contacts said anything about it to us.  I was able to contact the ONP wic with the inreach and a ranger opened the gate at Obstruction point road to let us out today at 6pm.

When we didn't see anyone in Grand Valley we started suspecting a zombie apocalypse or some such.

Gotta say today was the weirdest day backpacking I've ever experienced.
