On Saturday November 3rd, 2007 “89 yota” and I drove over Pyramid Pass. We met up with two west side members (Icesis & Barbie) and a guest (Carmen) on FS70.
This run was set up for the people that were new to wheeling to get some trail time. This was the first time for two ladies to drive their own rigs on the trail. Carmen in the blue Toyota pickup & Barbie in the TJ.
We met on FS70 and found a place to air down. We first ran Naches Pass Trail up to the Government Meadows Cabin parking area at Pacific Crest Trail and then headed back down the way we came up to be easy on the newbies. On the way down we ran into another group going up. I met a wheeler in a nice old Jeep that had seen the Tweety Jeep on the net. I believe his name was Brad.
We turning on Pyramid Pass and ran to the east side. On the east side we turned east onto Naches Pass Trail AKA 4W684. We got a few photos a long the way to FS1913. Brad’s group caught up to us so we pulled over and let them pass, then near FS1913 we passed Brad’s group taking a break.
At FS1913 we left Naches Pass and ran FS19 to FS1902, then up to Ravens Roost where we were hoping for some snow. There was no snow at Ravens Roost, it was just real cold!
We headed back down. We regrouped at Crow Creek Campground and then headed to Whistling Jacks where we parted ways.
This was a fun run thanks to the people that came. The newbies all did well on the trail. No carnage (yet). We hope to get them to wheel with us again.
