Forest Watch Liberty Run (Oct 31, 2010)
 
Yakima/Kittitas Forest Watch
Liberty Watch Run
October 31, 2010

On Sunday October 31st, 2010 we did a Forest Watch Run at the Liberty area.
On this run it was Foxracer in his Rubicon, Craigen in his XJ and Jeff in his Sami.
I (Ceg) was riding with Craigen and our Eagle Scout guest Patrick was riding with Jeff.

The General report:
The lower trails were a little muddy. A few trail marks are down.
We saw a few hunters and a few snow wheelers.
We gave a little eduction about wheel vehicles have to stay on the roads/trails even
if here is snow covering everything where no resource damage could happen.

This was a great run thanks to the people who came.

Here are some pictures of our run:

We headed up Reecer Creek Road toward the place we where meeting up with Jeff & Patrick.

This area had some climbs that were challenging due to the wet soil.
