I'm playing Josh's ashiko drum at our spot in Gifford-Pinchot National Forest, Washington. It's quite a long drive compared to the short trek to Mt. Hood National Forest here in Oregon. The payoff is that you generally won't run into another living soul up here. On this occasion, Josh and I came upon a motorcycle rider touring the high country. He let us have the spot and moved on. As we looked around, we were thrilled to find a plentiful supply of split cedar left by the previous campers!
