YK Forest Watch Manastash Run (Sep 5th, 2010)
Yakima/Kittitas Forest Watch -
Manastash Backroads Run
Sunday September 5, 2010
Our meeting place was at Wing Central's Roadhouse Grill in Ellensburg.
Ron was early we we stopped for coffee.
Nice classic car out front of the espresso place.
We headed up Manastash road and aired down when we hit the gravel.
Up at Manastash Campground we stopped to talk to the Forest Ranger and Deputy Sheriff that were patrolling the area.
Merrick seems happy at his job.
Loading up the crew.
On up FS3100 a little over 5900 ft it started snowing hard and the dust on windshield became mud.
Once up on Quartz Mountain we looked for a place out of the wind to eat lunch.
This place wasn't bad.
We found an old tree someone had cut down years ago the hard way.
Ron spotted a full size rig trying to fit down 4W306 and he let them know the truck was too big.
The guy drove back down FS3100. We headed out behind him.
We stopped at a view point on the way down FS3100.
After a bit we headed on down and turn onto FS3121.
We made our way to Cle Elem Point close to Peoh Point.
The wind was cool so we moved on down the mountain.
I shot this picture Cle Elum Lake on the way down.
