On Saturday, October 27th, 2007, we did a short run up to Blue Lake at the Ahtanum State Forest before the Halloween Party.
We met up at the Ahtanum Sno-park and aired down. We headed up the North Fork Ahtanum Road. We didn’t see any snow until the Blue Lake Trailhead. On 4W615 (Divide Ridge West) dropping down to Blue Lake the trail was covered with snow. There wasn’t much snow at Blue Lake. The lake had a ice cap over it. We took a break and the kids played. My dog Sierra was walking on the lake. We were thankful the ice did not break.
After a short time we moved on. We drove down 4W621 (Blue Slide) for a look. We turned onto 4W622 and drove a little ways. We turned around in a rocky area. Test Dummy got hung up on a rock. Coming back onto 4W621, Test Dummy had some pulley issues so Tiny follow him out the North Fork Road.
Phantom 309, Fatboy and myself headed up 4W615 to the Blue Slide Lookout. We was a plane flying below Dome Peak.
We headed down Jackass Road. We stopped to take a look down 4W637 (Short & Dirty). I stopped at the Gray Rock trail crossing for a short break and waited for the others.
On down Jackass Road there were hunters every where. We were stopped by two Game Wardens. They were looking for loaded rifles. We did not have any so they let us drive on.
We parted ways at the pavement so people could go get ready for the Halloween Party at the Graham’s in Yakima.
This was a fun run thanks to the people that came along. It was a great Halloween Party too!
