On Friday September 17th, 2021, we set up the Eastern Washington Expeditions booth up at the Benton Franklin Fair Grounds for the Kennewick Giant Swap Meet that ran Saturday and Sunday. We did not sell food this year due to the Governor’s mandates.

Saturday the event ran from 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM. There was a $1 admission fee. Sunday the event ran 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM and the admission was free.

It was a great time.

Here are some photos of the 2021 Kennewick Giant Swap Meet:

On Sunday September 12th 2021 we left the Eastern Washington Expeditions Club House in Selah at 10 AM with four Jeeps. We convoyed to Little Naches. On the way home through the Cliffdell area we saw helicopters working on the Schneider Springs Fire. We turned on the Naches Pass Trail at FS1913 and stopped to air down.

We headed west on the Naches Pass Trail crossing bridges and climbing hills over rocks and roots. We took a break at the mud hole near FS684. We then moved up the trail. There was another deep mud hole near the Naches Pass sign. We stopped for lunch at the Pacific Crest Trail and took a walk to the cabin and back. The Camp Robber birds came to see us as we were leaving.

We continued west on the Naches Pass Trail. We ran it all the way down to the end of the 4×4 part of the trail. We then took Pyramid Pass back to the east end of the trail and aired up at Bear Creek.

On the way home through the Cliffdell area we saw helicopters working on the Schneider Springs Fire.

On Saturday September 11th 2021 we left the Eastern Washington Expeditions Club House in Selah at 10 AM with six Jeeps. We convoyed through the Yakima River Canyon and ran I-90 to Cle Elum. We stopped to top off our fuel at Warrior’s Quick Stop and then continued west on I-90. We took exit 62 onto FS54. We stopped near the Palouse to Cascades State Park Trail and aired down.

We continued on FS54 over Stampede Pass and then turned on FS52. We had lunch under the High Steel Bridge.

After lunch we continued on FS52 then turned up FS7036, and then FS7037. At FS7038 we took a break on the top of the ridge and then headed down to Little Naches. We aired up on FS1913 and NF19.

On Wednesday September 8th 2021 we left the Eastern Washington Expeditions Club House in Selah at 10 AM with three Jeeps. We convoyed over Wenas/Ellensburg Pass to Manastash Road and headed up. We stopped and aired just pass the private property. Then headed on up. We were able to get out of the smoke of the Schneider Springs Fire.

Since we had all smaller 4×4 rigs we decided to run 4W311. We stared at Riders Camp and came out at Shoestring Trailhead.

We then headed from FS31 up FS3120, ran FS330, and then out Taneum Road. We aired up once we got to the county road.

We drove through Ellensburg and topped off the fuel tanks. Then we ran the Yakima River Canyon back to Selah.

Manastash Backroads Trip
By Eastern Washington Expeditions

By Clay Graham / CegPics.com

On Sunday September 5th 2021 we left the Eastern Washington Expeditions Club House in Selah at 10 AM with five Jeeps. We convoyed through the Yakima River Canyon to Ellensburg and then ran Manastash Road west.

We aired down just past the private property up the gravel part of Manastash Road FS31. Then we head up and stopped at the Viewpoint.

We then headed on Quartz Mountain we had a view of the Schneider Springs Fire. As we were there a deer and her babies came walking up on us. Of course I didn’t have the camera ready.

We headed back down and took FS3120, FS3120-109, and dropped drown 4W311. We then ran FS3111 back to just past were we turned down 4W311 and turned down FS3111-115. As you inter the L.T. Murray FS3111-115 changed names to Walter Springs. We ran it all the way down to FS31.

We ran Manastash Road, Umtanum Road, and turned onto Durr Road. We ran Durr Road all the way across the Wenas Wildlife Area and came out on Sheep Company Road. We headed home from there.
