Ahtanum ATV Night Run

Ahtanum ATV Night Run
By Clay Graham

On Saturday August 27th, 2011 we met up at Ahtanum Meadows for the Eastern Washington Adventures Ahtanum Night Run. Test Dummy and I had our quads and Craigen had his XJ.

Craigen decided to stay at camp and eat dinner with his family. Test Dummy and I rode up to Darland Mountain to see the sunset. We got up there just in time to see the great view. It was a nice evening to see Mount Adams, Mount St. Helens and Mount Rainier.

After it got dark I got some pictures of the City of Yakima and then we headed back down the mountain.

The ride to Darland and back was great since it was not cold out. It was a little cold at higher speeds.

I camped over night next to Craigen’s family at Ahtanum Meadows.

Here are some pictures of our trip:

We stopped just before the top of Darland Mountain to get some pictures of Mount Adams and Mount St. Helens.

Sunday morning walking back to my camp from Craigen’s family’s.

One of my tent hoops broke so I had to use my quad safety flag to hold the doorway open.

This was a nice camping stop next to the creek.

This was a very fun trip thanks to all who camp up.
