Dale's Run Sept. 25th and 26th 2010, Naches, WA
 
Here are some pictures from Dale's Run, this last weekend. This was my first year going on it.

On my way to Bonnie Lake to meet up with the Cascade 4X4's

On the Highway 410 headed to the Naches Pass trail

We made it all the way down to the Little Naches River and got on the road to get to the next trail. Kaner.

http://i975.photobucket.com/albums/a...A/100_1125.jpg

Troy Shipman ended up having a rear U-bolt come loose so he needed to tighten it up
http://i975.photobucket.com/albums/a...A/100_1126.jpg

Kevin Kurberg broke the shaft on his steering pump so everyone helped him get it fixed. Luckily he was carrying a spare.

Jer Simonson trying to get up on the bridge
http://i975.photobucket.com/albums/a...A/100_1130.jpg

http://i975.photobucket.com/albums/a...A/100_1131.jpg

He ended up not being able to so he went around
http://i975.photobucket.com/albums/a...A/100_1132.jpg

I don't know if anyone was able to get up on the bridge. The approach was dug out pretty bad.
http://i975.photobucket.com/albums/a...A/100_1134.jpg

http://i975.photobucket.com/albums/a...A/100_1136.jpg

Then we came out at Lily Pond
http://i975.photobucket.com/albums/a...A/100_1142.jpg

Going up to 5 Finger

This was the view we had of the sunset at the top of 5 Finger

Then we headed toward Tripod Flats
http://i975.photobucket.com/albums/a...A/100_1151.jpg

This was the sunrise on Sunday morning when we got up
http://i975.photobucket.com/albums/a...A/100_1154.jpg

There were people camped all over
http://i975.photobucket.com/albums/a...A/100_1159.jpg

http://i975.photobucket.com/albums/a...A/100_1161.jpg

Here is the fire pit and the Hunting shack at Tripod Flats
http://i975.photobucket.com/albums/a...A/100_1164.jpg

http://i975.photobucket.com/albums/a...A/100_1165.jpg

Funny Rocks were pretty quiet on Sunday
http://i975.photobucket.com/albums/a...A/100_1184.jpg

Heading down to the Highway to get fuel for the trip back
http://i975.photobucket.com/albums/a...A/100_1186.jpg

http://i975.photobucket.com/albums/a...A/100_1187.jpg

http://i975.photobucket.com/albums/a...A/100_1191.jpg

http://i975.photobucket.com/albums/a...A/100_1192.jpg

http://i975.photobucket.com/albums/a...A/100_1206.jpg

Looking back up the last section
http://i975.photobucket.com/albums/a...A/100_1210.jpg

Back down at the pavement and airing up our tires for the drive home
http://i975.photobucket.com/albums/a...A/100_1211.jpg

By the time we made it back to our trailers we had driven and wheeled over 160 miles total. This was one of the best runs I have ever been on.

Thanks to Dale and Mary Lou for a great run.

And a special thank you to the Cascade 4X4's for letting me tag along.

Back on topic:

Merrick, I am also interested to see any pics that you have from Funny Rocks...I think I saw your camera out when the Climax crew was putting on a show.


Sorry Bryan about my previous post, I see I edited and I meant to quote it.


My Bad...:BANGHEAD2:

Hey Marty.

It was one of my funner runs also. I absolutely love camping out of my jeep.
Even though I bring everything but the kitchen sink.

Oh and a spare U joint. Thanks for the loan of yours.
And thank you for the nice report.
As long as we are hijacking your thread here is a nice pic taken by Mules.

And then some more of his pics from the run linked here.
Dale and Mary Lou's Run pics taken by Mules Linky here..

He has given me permission to post his pics here in the past so I know he doesn't mind sharing them.
