This place was a tough go. The directions were good right up to the left at Eagle creek. There you have 2 choices. Stay right which is the lower road NSF152 unfortunately it comes to an abrupt end 2.1 miles from the main road. Blocked off intentionally 8 miles short. The first thing you see is a sign saying no prospecting, "Bismark Claim" which was well flagged. At this point I was unprepared. Once you leave the I-90 corridor about 10 mins after, no more smart phone help unless you download maps prior. or GPS works good for position. It was clear I needed more info, so I bailed and came home. Later I looked up this area with google earth looking for another way. I found NSF 2349, turn right here, 25 miles Or so later you come to NSF 1551 go left here and down. Signage is missing on some roads, vandalism. I took a few leaps of faith. The missing signs were either NSF 152 or NSF 1551 which is a loop rd of sorts. So NSF 1551 going down puts you on Casper creek, just below the confluence of Tributary creek. First thing I Saw there was another "no prospecting sign" But your in the area, the going is tough. You can see the old road, walking the creek bed is dangerous, I was alone, so I was super careful.

My overall opinions on this journey of discovery, are Leave nothing to chance, make sure your tires are in excellent shape, have a spare and a can of fixaflat, the farther in you go the sharper the rocks on the road are, 4x4s, fill your gas tank in Pritchard. Have alternate communication tools along with a loud side arm. "Cougars" I had 4 dogs with me so I didn't see any. Took some samples here and there, but never made it to the claim. This claim is remote is almost an understatement.

Great drive, good roads 50 minutes out of Monroe Washington. Money Creek Road takes you right to the claim although it's a steep climb down to the water, 50' - 100' almost straight down. The best way I found to the water is right at the north end. The claim's north end is very close to the 1 mile marker on Money Creek Rd. I couldn't find any Easy Money claim markers but the claims at both ends are marked.

I ran 2 buckets through my sluice box and found 4 small color and about 1/2 cup of black sand. Not a lot of gold but promising because the material I ran was just from a sand bar at the waterline.
