It was about a mile or mile and a half between the two. The little washout caught me by surprise. I had not heard about it until we got there. The bigger one happened 6-8 years ago and may become permanent. There were some nice spots at the parking area for the big washout. There is also a large Forest Service campground a mile beyond that that is no longer used much because folks can't drive to it. We ran through it yesterday to check it out. There are some very nice places in there, and it is likely never close to full any more. And 5.5 miles beyond the washout, at the end of the road, is a front country National Park campground with 20 something spots, again hardly used and very nice.
