On Saturday, June 9th, 2007, Eastern Washington Off Road members in Group 1 met up at the Cowiche Mill parking lot. Around 10 AM we hit the trail. We took Cowiche Mill road to C1000 and up Cowiche Ridge. We stopped at the Strobach Mountain 4×4 Trailhead and waited for Group 2 to come up from Nasty Creek Corrals.
Group 2 was running behind because of a rig problem. Group 1 headed up the Strobach Mountain 4×4 Trail. We stopped at Strobach Mountain Vista and waited for both groups to meet up.
Once everyone was at Strobach Mountain most headed up 4W613 toward Foundation Ridge. FJ4CJ and KrazyGimp headed back to town.
4W613 was slick. I got the Tweety Jeep hooked up on a boulder going up the steep part before the Upper Meadow. We hooked up the winch which didn’t want to work right.
Once I got up on top at the Upper Meadow and few guys went down to pull Roll Over’s rig up. Up on top PullUout made lunch. Roll Over, Tiny and 89-yota headed back towards town.
After lunch we continued toward Foundation Ridge. We had to stop in the Dome Peak Fire Area because Insanityfab had a stick smash through his fuse box.
After Insanityfab rewired his rig we headed on down 4W613 to the Lower Meadow where the Grey Rock Trail meets up. At this time most of the rigs head
up the side of Foundation Ridge. Fatboy, Scuba and I turned around to back track the trail. Near the end of Cowiche Ridge we played in the rocks.
This was a great run. Thanks to all that came out.
