Stopped for lunch here. On top of a high rock outcrop, good veiw of Kelso. Landing was sandy, and the tent pads were OK.

The landing is very nice - sandy (thought slightly muddy sand). There is a nice view from the kitchen on top of a rock. The site is well-used.

Just stopped to start a fire for a wet partner. Very nice landing. The best pad is flat and level, but looks like it could collect water in a heavy rain. Lots of tree for the hangers. The kitchen area was quite breezy with a wind out of the south.
