PNW's Trail Jamboree 2008

This was my first organized weekend ( turned out to be a week) wheeling trip. Had a blast.
We spend 5 days wheeling in an area called Naches, which is in the central eastern part of Washington. This is a huge ORV park that is maintained by DNR and the USFS. Beautiful country.


Heading out 5:30 am

Cruising down 167 with Mt. Rainier in the distance

Mt Rainier heading over Chinook Pass. Nice drive.

Made it camp at 11:00 am

The first bunch of our Club to show up.

First day out on the trails. Our club is the upper row.

Yup That is my little red TJ with all the big boys. And yes I go just about everywhere they do.

Potty break for the wimins, and airing down tires before we head up the trails.

On our way to Quartz Mountain elev. 6200ft

Umm it didn't look that deep ( girl drivers )

This was day 2. We went on the Naches Trail. This trail was used by settlers in wagons. Hard to believe they drug wagons down the same trail we jeeped on.






Lunch


Approaching the summit and Government Meadows.


Hit some snow

Yeah we had a blast. Great people good weather. The White CJ was the Trail Host's rig. He drove with his arm is a sling. He had the rig pointed down hill a few days prior to the run and had to get something out of the back. Turns out the Tire swing that is on the back did not want to stay open and closed full force on his arm.

Beautiful.
When was this? Looks too warm to be recent.
I'd love to go on a big run like that.

This was last July 2008. PNW4WDA puts on their annual Trail Jam every year. This year is the 20th anniversary. As far as warm goes.... the second day was like 38 in the morning and never did get up past 50. Rest of the time was in the high 70's. Washington weather

I know the feeling, we're in Spokane.

Very cool pics, thanks for sharing.
