Took a day trip up into the Central Cascade Mtns just to see what is of interest up that way.
It’s mostly outback homes and gated logging land until you’re far enough into the mountains. Fury road to N. Fork County road to NF-5730 leads one pretty far off the beaten path. Take NF-5736 for a eagles eye view of the valley but be warned that this NF is a tad technical. I saw some mature Elk, plenty of chipmunks and a good sized black bear.
