On Friday May 6, 2011 volunteer met up at Beverly Dunes for the annual Beverly Dunes Clean-up & Camping Trip hosted by Yakima/Kittitas Forest Watch (a division of Eastern Washington Adventures. Saturday morning other volunteers showed up to help with the clean-up. The clean-up took only about 3 hours since the dunes were pretty clean.

This was a great family trip. Volunteers got a chance to wheel the dunes Friday night through Sunday afternoon. Most packed up early on Sunday to head out to spend Mother’s Day with love ones.

Here are some pictures of our weekend.

Friday morning I met up with Foxracer at 4WheelingPlus.com to convoy to Beverly Dunes.

We stopped at Ryegrass Rest Area so Foxracer could fix his top.

We got the Base Camp set up.
