Was up there the other day. It sure could use a spring cleaning. It was a little better than most years but still a pig pen :x

Went up there Fathers day morning and there was a fire pit still smoldering around dry grass, must have been a party up there the night before. As soon as the wind picked up it flamed up, luckily I always take a gallon of drinking water and was able to put it out with that. I wish that they would realize that it is not the shooters that are causing the fires up there. Hate to see it closed for the season.

Edit: Friend of mine just sent me this. Looks like all DNR areas are closed to shooting. :evil:

FIRE DANGER RATING will move to "HIGH" Friday, July 7, at 12:01AM. High Temperatures already in the area will increase into the mid-90's to low 100's by this weekend with an extended trek in the 90's through next week and very low humidity readings.

This will also mean that any shooting on DNR properties will be prohibited.

Fire danger rating increases in northeast Washington

OLYMPIA – The Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) announced Monday the following changes in the fire danger rating and burn restrictions on DNR-protected lands.

Effective 12:01 a.m., Wednesday, July 5, 2017: • Fire danger will increase from moderate to high Chelan, Douglas, Kittitas, Grant, Yakima, Klickitat, Walla Walla, Columbia, Garfield, Asotin, Whitman and Adams counties.
• Industrial Fire Precaution Levels move to a Level 2 in Zone 675.
• Campfires allowed in Approved Designated Campgrounds ONLY.

Effective 12:01 a.m., Friday, July 7, 2017:
• Fire danger will increase from moderate to high in Stevens inside Fire Districts 1 & 2, Spokane, Okanogan and Lincoln counties.
• Industrial Fire Precaution Levels move to a Level 2 in Zone 684.
• Campfires allowed in Approved Designated Campgrounds ONLY.

Daily updates on burn restrictions are available at 1-800-323-BURN or on the Fire Danger and Outdoor Burning risk map at https://fortress.wa.gov/dnr/protection/firedanger/.

DNR’s wildfire mission Administered by Commissioner of Public Lands Hilary Franz, DNR is responsible for preventing and fighting wildfires on 13 million acres of private, state and tribal-owned forestlands. DNR is the state’s largest on-call fire department and participates in Washington's coordinated interagency approach to firefighting.

I've driven past the Swenson range multiple times over the last few days and I didn't see any "no shooting" signs.

Yep, closed for the season.
Looks to have been a fire started there a few days back, but no shooting signs are up.

Corkscrew highway from Spokane north to Tum Tum i believe. its about 30 minutes out of spokane. maybe a tad bit more. on the right hand side of the road.

If its open and you go please pick up a little bit of trash. Its pretty nasty up there.
