Juniper Dunes ORV Run

Report and photos by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Off Road

On Saturday November 14th, 2009 around 7:30 AM I loaded up the rig to make the 100 mile journey to Juniper Dunes near Pasco, Washington for the Eastern Washington Off Road & Peak Putters joint run.

It had gotten real cold the night before and the rig was frozen.

Along the way we stopped off for gas and food in Sunnyside.

We got to the meeting point in Smith Canyon just before 10 AM and started airing down with the others.

This XJ lost a back window on the way up. I am guessing he is stuck too.

It was time to start heading back out so we said our goodbyes to the Peak Putters and headed out by running the trails toward the east fence.

There were a few steep climbs a long the way.

Fatboy headed back to Yakima and the rest of us stopped in Richland for dinner at Kimo’s before heading home.

This was a very fun run thanks to everyone that came out.
We hope to do some more joint runs with the Peak Putters in the future.
