Old Naches videos
In a 1965 episode of Exploration Northwest, Don McCune chronicled the Yakima Ridge Runners trip over the Naches Trail, comparing it to the first pioneers crossing of the trail known at that time as the Meeker Trail. Linda McCune has allowed me to make a couple short clips of that episode.

Here's clip one as the jeepers prepare and reach the eastern start of the trail.

Here's clip two as the jeepers negotiate down the western steep slope of the trail.

You can learn more about the episode and other jeep related episodes of Exploration Northwest from this blog post

Finally, Linda has another jeeping episode, but she needs to assemble it. I'm not sure what the episode is about. So, I'll be checking back with her in the future to see if she's made any progress.

I have this DVD! It also features a Doe Run around the Salmon le Sac area in 1974 and a Mud Race hosted by the Yakima Ridge Runners in 1977. The Doe Run is a hoot, totally chauvinistic. Bought the DVD (along w/ a couple of others) from Mrs. McCune at a Winter Convention.
