Around 3:30 PM on Saturday July 17 2021 the Eastern Washington Expeditions group finished the Washington Backcountry Discovery Route Section 2 (viewtopic.php?f=117&t=562) in Ellensburg and fueled up for section 3.
We headed up Reeser Creek Road onto FS35 then up on Table Mountain. We turned off to FS3500-124 to set up camp for the night. Charlie cooked up some good tasting food that night. We sat around the propane campfire into the night.
Sunday morning after breakfast we aired down and drove over to Lion Rock to see the view. I have been there many times but never in the morning. What a great view.
We headed back out to the FS35 and headed north. We took a right onto FS9712 and ran it all the way to Mission Ridge Road. We did take one break and enjoyed the “Washouts” along the way.
We dropped down in Wenatchee and made our way up to Number 2 Canyon. Number 2 Canyon road was in pretty good shape. We ran it onto FS7100 and out a few miles from Cashmere. We had to drive a bit down the pavement to air up. There were a lot of towing signs.
In Cashmere we stopped at Riverside Park for lunch. You could see the start of WABDR Section 4 which was closed due to the Red Apple Fire. After lunch we headed over and topped off our fuel tank to head for home.
