Beverly Dunes Clean-up and Camp-out

Beverly Dunes Clean-up and Camp-out
Report and photos by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Adventures

On Friday May 4th, 2012 a lot of Eastern Washington Adventures members meet up at Beverly Dunes to camp for the weekend. The members did a few runs during the day and a night run. The wind made it a little cold.

On Saturday May 5th, 2012 volunteers met up at the Beverly Dunes parking area around 10 AM for the Beverly Dunes Clean-up hosted by Yakima/Kittitas Forest Watch Association (a division of Eastern Washington Adventures) with cooperation with the Department of Natural Resources. Once everyone sign in they headed out to pick up trash across the ORV area.

The clean up only took a few hours and then everyone got to play. Some that came just for the day went out on the first group run of the day. There were a few more runs before dinner. For dinner Icesis & Barbie cooked us a great Mexican dinner in celebration of Cinco de Mayo.

On Sunday May 6th, 2012 we woke up to a great day. It was warm and the wind was not blowing. We did a few runs before most people headed for home. A few stayed another night since the weather was so nice.

Thank you to everyone that came out to help with the clean up. Thank you Icesis and Barbie for the Cinco de Mayo dinner and Jeepscum for sharing his Sunday breakfast with us.

Here are some photos and videos I took of the weekend.
