Report and photos by Clay Graham / Selah Adventures – Selah Community & Tourism.

On Saturday morning, August 15 2015, Selah Cub Scout Pack 276 convoyed from Selah to Camp Fife to set up camp at Curtis Gilbert Boy Scout Lodge. Camp Fife is a Boy Scout camp and is located in the Cascades off of Chinook Pass near Bumping Lake in Goose Prairie, Washington.

Once camp was set up, the Cub Scouts carpooled with parents to Raven Roost. Raven Roost is over 6000 feet above sea level and has a great view of Mount Rainier. On this day the weather was cold and the mount view was lost in the clouds. We did not stay long. We headed back down the mountain to were it was warm.

It was still early enough to do another “Go see it” so we headed up the Little Naches River to the fish ladder. We stayed awhile and the Scouts had fun exploring the area.

Next it was time to head back to Camp Fife to cook dinner. The leader cooked dinner since the Scouts could not cook their own food in the campfire due to a burn band.

Sunday morning some of the Cub Scouts got up early helped set up the screen pop up so the bees would not attack the food being cooked. Once all Scouts were up, they raised the flag and did the Pledge of Allegiance. A short time later there was a pancake breakfast with bacon, hash browns, and eggs made by the Scout Leaders and parents.

After breakfast everyone helped to clean the lodge and surrounding area. Once everything was cleaned and the gear was packed up in the vehicles, the Scouts and families did a hike through Camp Fife to check everything out. The Cub Scouts got to see all the camp has to offer them as Boy Scouts.

Once back at the Curtis Gilbert Lodge we loaded up in the vehicles and convoyed to Boulder Cave. Once there we had lunch and then headed on a hike up the Boulder Cave Trail.

We have hiked this trail for many years and always had a great time. On this day we were very disappointed on what we saw. People had made many other trails off the normal path. There was a lot of people off the trail in many places. We watched other people throw their trash down as the walked.

One group was drinking beer on the Boulder Cave Trail and had left a beer bottle behind. As we came up to a group of people blocking the trail, they were swearing and drinking the brand of beer left behind. We watch one guy open a beer and throw the cap on the ground. We let them know they forgot a beer bottle and they told us it wasn’t theirs. They had a real bad attitude so we walked around them and kept going.

The Cub Scouts saw a lot of things people were doing against what the Boy Scouts are taught. This maybe our last Scout hike at Boulder Cave if the Forest Service does start enforcing the leave no trace rules.

Over all this was a very fun Cub Scout Camp Out.

We are planning our next camping trip at Camp Fife to be this coming winter.

Wagons East!
Naches Pass Trail 4×4 Run

Hosted by Eastern Washington Adventures
Report and photos by Amanda Graham / Eastern Washington Adventures.

The Historic Naches Pass Wagon Trail is one of the most poplar trails in the Northwest. We like to run this trail in the fall after the dust is gone and we do it in the opposite direction of the settlers for more of a challenge climbing the west end.

On Friday October 3rd, 2014 Eastern Washington Adventures members met up at Lost Meadow to camp for the annual “Wagons East! Naches Pass Trail 4×4 Run”.

Saturday October 4th around 10 AM we headed from our camp at Lost Meadow off of NF19 to cross over to Pyramid Pass with 8 rigs. On the West side we met up with Ron and Foxracer at the end of the Naches Pass 4×4 Trail on FS70.

We took a hike down to see the cliff where the Longmire Party lowered their wagons down in October 1853. There we saw a sign telling about how far the Longmire party had come and how much farther they were going. If you looked close enough you could see the marks in the trees that were made by the people lowering the wagons. We then hiked back up to start the 4×4 part of the run.

As we worked our way east to the beginning of the trail we stopped to see the sights. We stopped at Government Meadows on Naches Pass 4×4 Trail. There we had a lunch break, and took the short walk to see the Government Meadows Cabin and the meadow. As Everyone was getting ready the children had fun feeding the birds as they flew above. We packed up and headed out again. As we got to one of the many bridges we cross, we had to do a miniature work party on it because there were broken boards and it was not passable at the time. As the day winded down so do the trip.

At FS1913 we turned off the Naches Pass Trail to skip the newer tight part near the east end. We went back to camp and Ron and Foxracer headed back home to the west side. At camp we had a warm fire and a potluck. Everyone pitched in to make the day the best it could be.

On Sunday we took a drive up to Raven Roost. The view up there were great. Mount Rainier looked very close.

We headed back to camp with a stop at the Little Naches Fish Ladder. After we got back, we pack up for home.

This was a fun and exciting event. Thanks to all who came.

“Wild Winger!” Naches Pass 4×4 Run
Hosted by Eastern Washington Off Road
Report and photos by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Off Road

On Saturday July 19th, 2008, everyone met up at Lost Meadow off FS1906 for the annual summer Naches Pass 4×4 Run we call the “Wild Winger”.  Around 10:30 AM we hit the Naches Pass Trail (4W684) with three XJs, Two Toyota Trucks and a FJ40.

88sr5rollin1986 had a steering wheel problem before we got to FS1913. With the help of a few other, he got the steering wheel back on where it worked. At FS1913 88sr5rollin1986 took his rig back to camp because of the steering wheel problem. 88sr5rollin1986 and his Co-pilot got a ride in Scuba’s rig to see the rest of the trail.

We headed on crossing the trail bridges. “99” was afraid she was going to drive off them with her Tweety Jeep.

We stopped at the top of a hill climb so “Ron the Parts Guy” FJ40 could cool down. This is when 89 yota’s rig wouldn’t start. Oh what a feeling! Test Dummy helped 89 yota get his rig started and we were on our way.
We stopped at the top of the Naches Pass to get some pictures and then stopped for lunch at the Pacific crest trail crossing.

After lunch we headed on west down the Naches Pass Trail. At FS70, we took a break to hike down to see Naches Cliff, where the Pioneers had winch down their wagons.

Heading back over by NF70 to Pyramid Pass “Ron the Parts Guy” stopped to call his wife.

On FS1914 we jumped back on Naches Pass Trail to ran it back East. We went back to camp and ate dinner.

After dinner we took Scuba’s and my 99 XJ up Kaner (4W676) from the bottom. We ran it until we found a big mud hole Scuba could not make it through with both lockers on. Scuba finely gave up trying after I told him I wasn’t driving in that.

The next day Scuba headed home and we drove up to Ravens Roost. Up on top at Ravens Roost was a very nice view of Mt Rainier.

The Toyotas headed out for home. We head on down and decided to run Power Line. The part of Power Line we ran wasn’t bad. It beats running the road.

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

Father’s Day Manastash 4×4 Run & Camp Out
Hosted by Eastern Washington Off Road.
Report by Clay Graham. Photos by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Off Road

On Thursday June 14th, 2007 we headed up FS1701 to set up camp at the FS530 intersection for the Eastern Washington Off Road Father’s Day Weekend Camp-out & 4×4 Run on Manastash Ridge. Most of the All Wheelers Off Road Club came up on Friday afternoon to set up camp.

On Saturday we have more people from Eastern Washington Off Road show up to camp. We all pulled out together for the trail around 10 AM. We ran FS1701 to the end and then ran 4W694 up at Funny Rocks. At Funny Rocks some of the rigs stayed and play on the rock most of the day. The rest of us ran 4W694 and then down 4W307 to Tripod Flats for lunch.

After lunch we ran 4W307 down to Manastash Road FS3100 and then up to 4W311. We took 4W311 and it was a very tight fun trail. At the end of 4W311 (which was Riders Camp) we ran FS3100 and then back up 4W307. At the top of Manastash Ridge, we ran 4W694 back over to Funny Rocks for some to play. Then we took 4W695 to Moon Rocks and then down to FS1701 back to camp.

On Sunday most left for home. A few of us drove over the Raven Roost for the view but only found very cold clouds.

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