Default Pick Up A Mountain

PNW4WDA Region 4′s
“Pick Up A Mountain“
Report and photos by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Adventures

Every year on the third weekend of September, Region 4 of the Pacific Northwest 4 Wheel Drive Association holds a big event at Jim Sprick Park to pick up trash in the surrounding mountains of the Naches Drainage.

People started setting up camp Friday afternoon and by the night the park was packed.

Saturday September 21st, 2013 the day started with a driver’s meeting at 9 AM. After the drivers meeting we took a group photo of the rigs and headed out.

Our group Eastern Washington Adventures headed up FS1701 which is across the road from Jim Sprick Park. We stopped at the intersection of FS1701 & FS530 to clean up the camps. Next we ran to the end of FS1701 and turned up 4W694. We picked up trash along the way until we ran into a closed sign due to a fire on the north slope of Manastash Ridge. We headed back down FS1701 and turned up 4W670. At the top we turned onto 4W698. We did not get to far since there was a big tree across the trail and the by-pass was too tight for the JKUs in the group. We turn around and headed back down to FS1701. We ran FS1701 and then up 4W695 to Moon Rocks. Next we headed across Bald Mountain by the way of 4W644 and FS530. We ran FS1701 back down to camp at Jim Sprick Park.

In the afternoon they had games for the Junior Jeepers and then had the Corn Shucking Contest. Steve Haverfield won the Corn Shucking Contest this year. After all the corn was shucked and cooked, they had a potluck dinner. Next was the raffle. There were many great raffle prizes. After the raffle the DJ played music and some danced.

On Sunday Region 4 had a free breakfast for the volunteers. Our group Eastern Washington Adventures cooked breakfast.


PNW4WDA Region 4 wants to thank all who helped make this event work, thank you to all the volunteers that picked up trash and thank you to all that donated.
