Saturday morning we headed up the trails. We did the Short and Dirty, Conner Pass, Butcher Knife and another i doo nt remeber the name of. Our trail guide Del and Shel know the area well and so we just follow thed them.
All was well, no one broke and I only got pulled up 1 hill. I figured safe than sorry. i gave the hill climb two runs and had Del pull me up the last 15 feet of the hill.
Here are some pictures of the day.

While we were airing up, Dusty noticed a crack in his frame, s Del welded it up before heading back to camp.

That welder saved me last year and we are thankful he has it with him, and that thing welds nicely.

All in all it was a great weekend of wheeling, to bad it was so short, we all wanted a few more days on the trail.

Cool pics. Thanks for sharing.

Too bad I missed you guys. I was in the Blue lake area twice on Saturday with the Tweety Jeep. Don't know but you should have passed through there running those trails.

I thought you were at the rocks for the forth :dontknow:Not me. Do the Dew quad/bike run is always around the 4th. There is a bunch of people going to the rocks next weekend and we were but we ended up have another event to do at the Ahtanum instead.
