L. T. Murray Tour (August 21st, 2009)
 
This is Green Dot Road Tour I thought I would share with you.
I know this is not a hard core wheeling area but some of these roads are loose so 4 Wheel Drive helps.
This place would be a lot of fun if there was snow on the ground.

Heading out to see if we can see the Yakima River Canyon on a Green Dot road.

Here is looking down at the Yakima River Canyon.
This was kind of strange looking. It looks like a crater or a big explosion happened.

Zoom in view of the river.

We headed out Durr Road onto Sheep Company Road and took a left on North Wenas Road to head toward Selah. Others left different ways.

This was a very fun day thanks to all who came.

I apologize for not having all the road names. I am new to this area and can not find my L. T. Murray since I moved.
