    Is this anywhere near the climbing walls?

      Nearby yes. Under McChellan Butte. I saw it from the freeway yesterday. If figured it was close to where people go to illegally shoot weapons.

    There’s homeless “campers” all over the place along I-90. It’s illegal, and made worse by their disregard for burn bans,waste disposal, and such. Just like Seattle being allowed to be trashed in the name of “compassion”, now our forests are getting burnt down. If you see them, report them.
