Update: the washout is easily negotiable by any vehicle with at least some clearance. The road dips into the creek enough that may need care for vehicles with lower clearance. Our CR-V made it...

We went up to Tenquille on Saturday - reminded what a gorgeous area it is! Could've done without the mosquitoes though - they were awful coming in from Branch 12.

The first bridge posted by Bill has a bit of a twist to it now but it's still crossable. I think it's high enough above Cayoosh Creek to be OK.

There is one more creek crossing as you enter the...

Shame about the weather (we had similar mixed conditions a few years back) but it's such a great area isn't it? For me it's one of those areas that really does live up to the hype.
