On Thursday, May 4th, 2017, my son Doc and I headed up to BBQ Flats at the Wenas Recreation Area to set up camp for the weekend camp out. It was a very nice day to be in the mountains. That evening it started to sprinkle but it was warn enough to be out in t-shirts. Doc did some Pine-cone Golfing as I took photos of the cool rainbow. We sat under the pop-up with the propane campfire going into the night. Doc slept in the campervan with me since the tarp was not big enough to keep rain out of his tent. Lucky he did, because around 1 AM we had a thunder and lightening storm. It lasted around 40 minutes and then there was a heavy downpour.

On Saturday, May 6th, 2017, volunteers and Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) met up at our camp for the clean up. At 9:30 AM groups headed out. Two groups in ORVs headed out to replace Green Dot markers and pick up trash. Selah Cub Scout Pack 276 headed out to pick up trash from BBQ Flats to and through Cascade Camp.

Around 3:30 PM all the groups meet back up at BBQ Flats with the trash and tools for the DNR to take back to the Ahtanum Guard Station.

The campers had dinner and enjoyed the campfire. The wind made it a cold night.

Sunday was a very nice day. Everyone packed up and headed home.

This was a great time takes to all who came out.
