    Wagons East! Naches Pass Trail 4x4 Run
    Report & photos by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Adventures

    The Historic Naches Pass Wagon Trail is one of the most poplar trails in the Northwest. Some years we run this trail a few times during the time the west side is open. We really like to run this trail in the fall after the dust is gone and we do it in the opposite direction of the settlers for more of a challenge climbing the west end.

    Time to get a New Washington State Land Commissioner
    By Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Adventures

    We need to replace Washington State Lands Commissioner Democrat Peter Goldmark!

    On the last election the Sierra Club wanted Goldmark in for a reason and it worked. Under Goldmarks term we lost motorized access to some state lands. One place is Reiter Foothills Forest. Although volunteers are working hard to reopen motorized trails and some look to be reopened soon, ...
  6. Mudding is illegal most places! Don't do it!

    Memorial Day weekend is here. Remember Mudding is illegal on most public lands in Washington State. Mudding causes public land closures since it cost a lot to repair the land back up to the environmentalist standards. Please let people know it is NOT alright to damage our public lands. Educate as you recreate!

    What a weird winter not having snow in the Yakima area. There has not been snow even in the lower mountain areas where there is normally.

  13. Trail users getting shafted by Ranger

    My Reply on the "Naches Ranger District trail users at odds with district over possible closures" article:


    At a TWIG Meeting last Spring, Naches District Ranger Irene Davidson told the group, "This meeting is not for discussion, it's for your information".

    On October 4th, 2011 Davidson was kinder than she had been in the past to the volunteers since a Representative for Congressman Doc Hastings was there. Davidson talked about TWIG as a group would have to ...

    Did you ask to use you fireplace?
    By Clay Graham

    By this report "A certain something in the air over Yakima" on KIMA, some of us can get tickets for using our fire places to heat our homes. The report states, "Homes with wood stoves as their only source of heat are allowed to burn with permission, yet that smoke must meet certain guidelines." I do not have an electric furnace. I have an oil furnace which I refuse to fill at these high fuel prices. So my new certified fireplace ...

    I thought I would share this since many others have wheelin' dogs.

    Yesterday was Libby's first time out wheelin'. She seemed to have a good time. She loves run around in the snow. Here are a few pictures.
