Default 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

Airing down before getting on the trail

The line of rigs waiting to start up the trail

This is looking down at the first section of the Naches Pass trail that is now closed

Heading to the top of Naches Pass

Top of the Pass

Going through the meadow

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

Here we stopped for lunch

Starting to go up Upper Kaner

Rob S. waiting at to come down a spot on Kaner

Waiting to go up the hill

Everyone at the top

Troy Shipman ended up having a rear U-bolt come loose so he needed to tighten it up

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

He ended up not being able to so he went around

I don't know if anyone was able to get up on the bridge. The approach was dug out pretty bad.

Then we came out at Lily Pond

Do to the time we went down from Lily Pond and went over toward 5 Finger

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

This was the sunrise on Sunday morning when we got up

There were people camped all over

Here is the fire pit and the Hunting shack at Tripod Flats

We left there and went to Funny Rocks

Looking down the hill at an old car that was left there years ago

Looking back towards Rocky Saddle

Coming in to Funny Rocks

Funny Rocks were pretty quiet on Sunday

Heading down to the Highway to get fuel for the trip back

Back on Highway 410 going to get gas

Going back up the Little Naches river to the Naches Pass trail

Back on the Naches Pass trail

The few of our rigs that were left taking a break at the Cabin

Shawn Churchill going up a steep spot

Going down the west side

Going down the last section before the end

Looking back up the last section

Back down at the pavement and airing up our tires for the drive home

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.
