On Sunday September 12th 2021 we left the Eastern Washington Expeditions Club House in Selah at 10 AM with four Jeeps. We convoyed to Little Naches. On the way home through the Cliffdell area we saw helicopters working on the Schneider Springs Fire. We turned on the Naches Pass Trail at FS1913 and stopped to air down.
We headed west on the Naches Pass Trail crossing bridges and climbing hills over rocks and roots. We took a break at the mud hole near FS684. We then moved up the trail. There was another deep mud hole near the Naches Pass sign. We stopped for lunch at the Pacific Crest Trail and took a walk to the cabin and back. The Camp Robber birds came to see us as we were leaving.
We continued west on the Naches Pass Trail. We ran it all the way down to the end of the 4×4 part of the trail. We then took Pyramid Pass back to the east end of the trail and aired up at Bear Creek.
On the way home through the Cliffdell area we saw helicopters working on the Schneider Springs Fire.
