On the weekend of August 24th-26th, 2018 Eastern Washington Adventures held the 7th Annual Go Play Topless Weekend at their location in Selah, Washington. This year the event was sponsored by Selah Sweets.

Friday people came and set up camp at Eastern Washington Adventures. In the evening we sat in the Biergarten making a new route plan since the area had a lot of smoke due to all the wildfires.

Saturday morning around 10 AM the group headed out for the run with five Jeeps. We convoyed through the Yakima River Canyon stopping at the Ellensburg side at Helen McCabe State Park for a break.

After the break we headed into Ellensburg to take Umtanum Road to the Wenas Wildlife area. At Durr Road we aired down and then continued up Wenas Pass. We turned off Wenas Pass onto Hanson Pond Road. At Hanson Pond we took a lunch break.

After lunch, we continued up Hanson Pond Road to the Manastash Ridge Observatory.

Next headed down Observatory Road back onto Wenas Pass. We ran down to North Wenas Road and then up Ridge Road. We ran Ridge Road on up on top of Umtanum Ridge. It started to rain a little, so we just ran the Umtanum Ridge to Durr Road stopping at the towers along the way.  We headed down Durr Road, out Sheep Company Road and back to the EWA Club House.

Back at the EWA Club House we had a potluck dinner and enjoyed sitting around the Biergarten.

Sunday morning everyone packed up and headed for home.

Thank you to all who came.

Wenas Recreation Area Camp Out & Clean Up
Hosted by Eastern Washington Adventures and the Department of Natural Resources.

Report by Clay Graham. Photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets & Flint Buchman.

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.
