4th Annual Juniper Dunes Clean Up
Hosted by the Midnite Mudders
Report and photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets/Eastern Washington Adventures.
On Friday April 13th, 2018 we headed from Selah to Juniper Dunes near Pasco, Washington to camp for the weekend to help with the Midnite Mudders 4th Annual clean up.
We set up camp around 1 PM and waited for others in our Eastern Washington Adventures group to get there. Around dark, we headed out for a night run in the dunes for a few hours.
Saturday morning we headed to the beginning of Smith Canyon road to sign in for the Midnite Mudders Juniper Dunes Clean up. Once everyone was signed in, our group headed out with two Wranglers, to new Cherokees, and two Yamaha YXZ Side-by-sides. We worked our way out to the north end by running the wilderness fence picking up trash a long the way and back through the west side dunes to the Midnite Mudders camp.
The Midnite Mudders were starting their raffle as we pulled into their camp. There were a lot of people there that were part of the clean up.
We want to thank everyone that came out to help with the Juniper Dunes Clean Up. Thank you to the Midnite Mudders for hosting this great event.
