New Year’s Day
Wenas Wildlife Area Snow Wheeling
Hosted by Eastern Washington Expeditions

Report & photos by Clay Graham / CegPics.com

Around 10:00 AM Saturday January 1st 2022 Liberty State Overland Club members convoyed from the Eastern Washington Expeditions Club House in Selah to the Sheep Company Road entrance of the Wenas Wildlife Area and aired down.

After airing down we headed up Durr Road and then over to the Umtanum Ridge towers. The view was great. Mount Rainier and the Steward Mountain Range were lite up with sunshine.

Next we head northwest on Umtanum Ridge to the end. Along the way we found a few challenging areas of deep snow. Over all it was pretty easy going. At the northwest end of the top of Umtanum Ridge we stopped for lunch.

After lunch we dropped down to McCabe Road and stopped to see the Eagles in the trees. As we were there, a herd of Elk came through.

We drove to the end of McCabe and then back tracked to head down to North Wenas Road. Once we hit the pavement we did not bother to air up since the road was covered with snow most of the way back to the Eastern Washington Expeditions Club House.

Sledding Snow Wheeling Trip
Hosted by Eastern Washington Expeditions

Report & photos by Clay Graham / CegPics.com

Around 10:00 AM Saturday December 2021 Liberty State Overland Club members convoyed from the Eastern Washington Expeditions Club House in Selah to Fred Meyer in Yakima. We had to pick up an air fryer since TJ40 forgot his at home and we needed to cook fries to go with the bratwurst lunch. Next we convoyed to FS1701 off SR410 and aired down.

After airing down we headed up FS1701. Not far up we found snow. As we past the Hog Ranch turn-off on FS1701 the snow got deeper. We drove up to 4W670 and turn off to set up a day camp for the kids to sled and to cook lunch.

We unloaded the Jeeps and set up for cooking. Lucky we bought the Air fryer. We found out we forgot to load the bratwurst into the Jeep. We just had fries and Hot Cocoa for lunch.

As the kids sled and we cooked lunch, a lot of side by sides and quad past through. It was fun watching them take many runs at the snow covered 4W670 hill climb. After we packed up, Doc tried to make it up the hill with his Dixie Jeep YJ. After not making it, he back down onto a big rock he got stuck on. Doc had to winch up and off the rock. Charlie tried the climb in his ZJ and did not make it. Charlie came back down and then got stuck. Doc used his Dixie Jeep to pull Charlie’s ZJ out.

Next we headed on up FS1701 and then up 4W694. Doc need a pull from TJ40 to get up the first climb. We ran 4W697 to 4W670 and back down to FS1701. We ran FS1701, down FS1720, and out FS1702. We aired back up near SR410 and headed back to the Eastern Washington Expeditions Club House for dinner.

Christmas Tree Snow Wheeling Trip
Hosted by Eastern Washington Expeditions

Report & photos by Clay Graham / CegPics.com

Around 9:15 AM Saturday November 27 2021 we headed to Naches to meet up with the group. We dropped down to the Town of Naches and found Doc was not following. We turned around to go find him. He was broke down on top of the ridge. We did not hear him on the CB due to his short antenna. Doc lost his YJ’s rear driveline and broke his transfer case. He was able to drive it back to the EWE Club House. We piled into the other two rigs and headed back to Naches.

We met up with Dan & Don in Naches and then headed up to Little Naches. At Little Naches we ran the snow covered FS1906 to the end. We stopped to look for Christmas Trees and have lunch. The EWE Chuckwagon cooked Bratwurst and made hot cocoa. TJ40 cooked fries in his air fryer. It was a great lunch around the propane campfire. The boys found a nice Christmas Tree and loaded it up on the Alice Jeep. Most aired down during lunch.

Next we made our way up to Raven Roost for something to do. We did not stay long due to the view was short because of the clouds.

Down near Crow Creek we stopped to air up for home.

This was a lot of fun for most of us. I am sure Doc will have his YJ going in no time.

Thanksgiving Snow Wheeling Trip
Hosted by Eastern Washington Expeditions

Called by Space Cowboy
Report & photos by Clay Graham / CegPics.com

On Friday November 26 2021 we met up at Hank’s place in Tampico around 10 AM.

We aired down and head up the South Fork Ahtanum Creek Road. The road had mixed conditions of wet, snow, and ice. We drove to the end of the South Fork and onto the Sedge Ridge 4×4 Trail. Not far past the duel climb we had to turn around because a lot of trees fell across the trail. Turning around on the side of the hill was fun. Space Cowboy’s rig slid down over a stump and we had to pull it off sideways and then Dan slid sideways into another stump getting his JK stuck.

Once we had everyone turned around we headed back down running the Sedge Ridge 4×4 Trail to Red Saddle. At Red Saddle we stopped for lunch.

After lunch we continued on across Sedge Ridge heading toward Tampico. We saw two groups of Deer on the way.
