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

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

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

There were people camped all over

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.
