be sure to go check out harts pass out of mazama, it's a fairly short ride but well worth it. you can drive a vehicle up there as it is just a forrest service road, but it has it's spots i may be able to meet u somewhere, it is only about 90 miles from home, an i can connect oroville to winthrop with very little pavement through conconully. you could also go up the chewack river, lots of burnt forrest and there is a nice monument for the 4 firefighters that were killed on the tripod fire a few years back. i'll see what my schedule is like as the date comes closer, should be able to get awat one day.

i can meet you in winthrop, we could go up harts pass, i haven't been there yet this year. it's a fairly short ride, depending on what time we leave might have time to run up the chewack river also. bring your coat it's cooled off a bunch here the last couple days. an bring lots of mosquito dope too! or we could head up towards freeze out pass, or baldy pass. doesn't matter to me where we go it's up to you as i've seen it all many times.

oh, i'm sure it can be missed. but winthrop is not that big, so i'm sure you'll eventually find it. might not hurt to bring the extra can, ya never know.
