On Saturday October 28th, 2017 around 10 AM outdoor enthusiasts met up at the Eastern Washington Adventures Club House in Selah, Washington for the “Halloween Backroads 4×4 Adventure”. We convoyed to the Upper Wenas part of the Wenas Wildlife Area for a backroads run up Cleman Mountain.

We aired down at the Hay barn off North Wenas Road and headed up W1100. At the top of Cleman Mountain we ran the the ridge Southeast to the end of the Green Dot where we stopped for lunch.

After lunch we back tracked past where we came up and ran the top of Cleman Mountain Northwest. We continued into the Naches Ranger District onto FS1712 and ran it to FS1701 (Bald Mountain Rd.). At FS1701 we took a break and said goodby to the people in tow of the rigs that had to head back over to Western Washington for work.

We turn up FS1701, took FS1716 and then turn on Hog Ranch Road to go back toward North Wenas Road. We aired up at the parking area off Maloy Road. Most people headed back home and a few came to the Eastern Washington Adventures Club House.

This backroads run was fun. The views were great even though it was a little hazy at times in the distance.

Back at the Eastern Washington Adventures Club House we had a potluck and Halloween Party. Some of the kids played in the Haunted House. The Halloween party was a lot of fun.

Here are some photos of the Halloween Backroads 4×4 Adventure:

On Saturday October 29th, 2016 around 10 AM outdoor enthusiasts met up at the Eastern Washington Adventures Club House in Selah, Washington for the “Oktoberfest Backroads 4×4 Adventure”. We convoyed to the Upper Wenas part of the Wenas Wildlife Area for a backroads run up Cleman Mountain. It was a rainy day.

We aired down at the parking area off Maloy Road and headed up Auduban Road then went up Hog Ranch Road. As we got higher, we found some snow. We continued into the Naches Ranger District onto turn up FS1716 and then onto FS1701 (Bald Mountain Rd.). We onto FS1712 at headed across Cleman Mountain stopping for lunch along the way. After lunch we ran to the east end of the Green Dot Road on Cleman Mountain. We were hoping for a view of the Upper Valley but the clouds were to thick. We back tracked to head off the mountain. Due to the thick fog, we turned down the wrong Green Dot Road and had to go back up and hit the right one on down the ridge (W1100). We aired up at the Hay barn off North Wenas Road and headed back to the Eastern Washington Adventures Club House. This backroads run was fun. The views were not very good due to the clouds.

Back at the Eastern Washington Adventures Club House we had a Oktoberfest potluck.

This was a fun 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.
