On Saturday May 8, 2021 we left the Eastern Washington Expeditions Club House around 9:30 AM with three rigs. We drove to the Oak Creek Feeding Station and aired down. As we were airing down we watched the rock climbers in the distance.
We waited a few minutes after 10:00 AM to see if anyone else was going to show up. No one did so we headed on up Bethel Ridge Tie Road. At the top of Bethel Ridge we turned west. T We stopped for a break around the bend.
After the break we across Bethel Ridge toward Forest Service land. We started to hit snow on the road right after the North Fork Oak Creek Road. Through the area where you can see Devils Table, the snow drifts were tall. There three you had to cross to stay on the trail and they were a little challenging. Steve got stuck on the third one and Charlie had to give him a tug so he could get another run at it.
We turned down 4W671 and stopped for lunch. There was a great view of the Rimrock Area and the Yakima Valley. After lunch we continued down 4W671. We were lucky that most of the snow was gone since the trail is steep. At the bottom we stopped at Bear Lake to see some friends.
After awhile we headed on down to US12. We watched the rock climbers as we aired back up.
This was a very fun trip riding with Doc.
