Report by Clay Graham. Photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets / Eastern Washington Tourism

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.

Here are some photos of Christmas at Camp Fife:

Halloween Camp Out at Camp Fife
Report & photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets / Eastern Washington Tourism

On Friday, October 26th, 2018, Eastern Washington Adventures Club members met up at the Curtis Gilbert Lodge at Camp Fife for the annual Halloween 4×4 Run. We built a fire in the stove and then had a potluck dinner. We enjoyed the night talking about adventures. There were many elk right outside the front door making noise all night.

Saturday morning we had a potluck breakfast and then headed out for the 4×4 run with four Jeeps, a XJ, a YJ, a TJ, and a JK. Our first stop was at the end of the pavement of Bumping River Road to air down. Next we headed up the road to Granite Lake for a break. It was very peaceful at Granite Lake.

After awhile, we headed on up the mountain to Miners Ridge. The view was great on top. Mount Rainier was clear and standing out! With binoculars you could Sunrise Visitor Center at Mount Rainier National Park. We had lunch there and enjoyed the view.

After lunch we headed back down. Two rigs headed to the Copper City 4×4 Trail and two of us headed back to Camp Fife.

Back at camp Fife it started raining. So we sit around the fire staying warm. When the others got back, we had a potluck dinner. It rained all night.

Sunday morning we had a potluck breakfast and packed up for home. We aired up our tires and took a walk over to the Camp Fife Dining Hall. Two of our members help getting it built years ago.

We head home around noon. The fall colors were great along SR410.

This we a great time thanks to all who came.

Camp Fife is a Boy Scout camp and is located in the Cascades off of Chinook Pass near Bumping Lake in Goose Prairie, Washington.

Boulder Cave Hike and Sightseeing Drive
Report & photos by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Adventures

On Saturday July 5th, 2010 we took a trip to see Boulder Cave near Cliffdell Washington.
Here are some pictures of our day.

Reading the rules.

The first view point.

Looking off.

Kids taking a break waiting for us.

Down the hill toward the cave.

Looking back at the trail down.

Talking over the rules again with the kids.

Here goes nothing.

Looking back at the light.

It was very dark in the middle. Lucky we had flashlights.

Here is coming out the other side of the cave.

Looking back.

Climbing back up.

Once back at the parking area the family loaded up in the rig as I talked with Deputy Sutliff from the Yakima County Sheriff”s Office about some Yakima/Kittitas Forest Watch Association stuff.

We headed out and decided to go check out some of the area. Our first stop was at Raven Roost. The clouds covered Mt. Rainier so the view was not as great as it could have been.

It was cold at Raven Roost so only Monster and I got out.

We headed back down the mountain and stopped to let the kids run.

After a short break we headed on down.

We swung through Long Meadow came to fine most campers were gone and some left their campfires burning.

The Forest Service was there putting them out.

Next we headed toward Little Bald Mountain. On the way was saw a lot of elk.

At the old Little Bald Mountain lookout location we could see Mt. Rainier.

We let the kids out at the cabin where it was safer.

After a short time we headed on down toward home. This was a great day.

Rimrock Sledding 4×4 Adventure
Hosted by Eastern Washington Off Road
Report by Clay Graham. Photos by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Off Road

On Sunday, November 27th, 2005, we headed up to Rimrock Area in the Naches Ranger District to go sledding and sightseeing.

We ran FS1201 up to the end stopping off looking at 4×4 trailheads. We let the kids go sledding near Long Lake until they got to cold. We then drove around Rimrock Lake Peninsula for fun.

Heading back to Yakima we stopped off at the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife Oak Creek Wildlife Area Elk Feeding Station to see the elk. There were only a few elk there at that time. The kids still thought it was cool!

This was a very fun day.
