Christmas Tree Backroads Run
Report and photos by Clay Graham (http://www.easternwashingtonadventures.com/member.php/2-Ceg) / Eastern Washington Adventures (http://easternwashingtonadventures.com/)

On December 1st, 2007 we met up in Naches for the Eastern Washington Off Road member Christmas Tree Run. We had a small turn out on this cold day.

From Naches we headed toward Rimrock Lake. Demontang was the trail boss for this run.

We drove around until Demontang decided this was a place to get a tree.

Demontang loaded up a big tree and we were off to fine more.

Demontang's wife stopped and waited with her Explorer while we took a trail that had some deeper snow on it.

This was the next stop for trees.

My dogs had fun in this deeper snow. Pepper (the little dog) had to jump like a rabbit to move though the snow.

Here is the Christmas Tree in our bar room ready for the club party.

We have a big fake tree up stairs in the living room for the family. We just thought it would be fun to do a run for a club Christmas Tree and it was. Everyone had a great time.

Merry Christmas!

Looks like good times; times to remember. We had been waiting to hear from our kids and grand kids whether they would make it up for a BDNW Christmas Tree Run and it turns out they will. That is why I cancelled out on the Dec 8th Slab Run. I hope we have as much fun on our Christmas Tree Run as you guys did.
