On Saturday December 22nd, 2018 after the Yakima Horse Drawn Wagon Rides, the Graham Family (AKA “The Selah Sweets Staff”) headed up to Camp Fife in Goose Prairie to spend Christmas. It started snowing as we were unloading at the Curtis Gilbert Lodge. Since the lodge does not have power, we lit the propane lights and started at fire in the wood stove. It wasn’t long before we were warm and ready to enjoy our vacation.

Over night we got a lot of snow. Sunday morning you could see how much it snowed by the amount of snow on the vehicles we drove in. It snowed off and on throughout the day.

Monday it was a grey day with just a little blue in the sky here and there. Our oldest son Hank, his wife and two sons came up in the afternoon to have Christmas Eve dinner with us and open some gifts. It was a very fun evening having all our children and grandchildren with us. Hank and he family left later that night to go back home in Yakima.

Tuesday, Christmas morning it was clear and cold but very beautiful. No one was in a rush to leave even though they new they had presents under the tree back home in Selah. We slowing packed up the rigs and headed home.

The was a very good Christmas trip.

Report & photos by Clay Graham – Selah Sweets / Eastern Washington Tourism

Around 5:30 PM Friday, November 2nd, 2018, my sons, Doc and Odo and I headed out from the Eastern Washington Adventures Club House in Selah toward Beverly Dunes to set up camp for the annual clean-up.

Once at Beverly Dunes we set up camp with TJ40. We used the trucks with campers as a wind block and put up a pop-up between them for shelter. We then had dinner around the propane campfire in the pop-up since it was breezy out.

Saturday morning more Eastern Washington Adventures Club members and volunteers from a few PNW4WDA Clubs showed up help. Stephanie from the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) showed up around 9:30 AM so people could signed in and get some tools for the clean up.

Most of the main work was in the campground cleaned out the fire pits and picked up trash.

After the clean up some headed home and the rest of us went and played in the dunes for a few hours. The ORVs left were Foxracer’s Subaru Outback, TJ40’s Yamaha YXZ, and my Jeep JKU.

Sunday morning we woke up to a blue sky. About the time we decided to pack up, the wind started blowing hard.

Around noon we headed home. Reece followed me in his truck. Crossing the Columbia River on I90 was scary. The wind was blowing so hard, it felt like my truck with camper were going to blow over. We stopped in Vantage to top off the fuel tanks since I used a lot of fuel fighting the wind.

We headed up the the Old Vantage Highway toward Ellensburg with one stop along the way. It was slow going with the hill and wind blowing against us. The wind died down some by the time we got to the Yakima River Canyon.

This was a very fun weekend thanks to all that came.
