3rd Annual “Go Play Topless” Weekend
Report and photos by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Adventures

On the weekend of September 12th-14th, 2014 Eastern Washington Adventures held the 3rd Annual Go Play Topless Weekend at their location in Selah, Washington. This year the event was sponsored by Pegasus Northwest and Selah Adventures.

Friday people came and set up camp at Eastern Washington Adventures. They gathered around the patio warming fire to visit.

Saturday morning the sun was shining bright. It was a nice day. Free coffee was severed in the EWA Club House.

Around 10 AM the group headed out for the run with four Jeeps. We convoyed over to I-82 for some supplies and then through the Yakima River Canyon. At the Ellensburg side we stopped at Helen McCabe State Park for a break. After the break we headed into Ellensburg to take Umtanum Road to the Wenas Wildlife area. At Durr Road we aired down and then continued up Wenas Pass. We turned off Wenas Pass onto Hanson Pond Road and took it up to the Manastash Ridge Observatory where we stopped for lunch.

After lunch we headed down Observatory Road, onto Mud Flat Road and out Audubon Road to North Wenas Road. We ran North Wenas Road just a little ways and turned up Ridge Road. We ran Ridge Road on up to the top of Umtanum Ridge and took a break to look back across at the Manastash Ridge Observatory. From there we ran the top of the ridge across to Bel Tel Road with one loop down Black Canyon on the way. On Bel Tel Road we headed to the bottom and out Sheep Company Road and back to the EWA Club House.

Back at the EWA Club House we had a potluck dinner and enjoyed sitting around the fire in the Biergarten.

Sunday morning there was a potluck breakfast. People then packed up and headed for home.

Thank you to all who came. Thank you to Pegasus Northwest for sponsoring this year’s “Go Play Topless” event.
