On Sunday July 8th, 2018, Eastern Washington Adventures Club members headed from Selah to Benton City and met up with other EWA members.
After a short break, we headed toward Dayton where we planned to have lunch. One of the EWA members thought he had a faster route, so we took it. As we were heading on the short cut, he then got to thinking it may have not been the right way. We stopped and looked at a map and decided to turn around and head back to I-182 and go the original way.
In Dayton, we stopped for fuel and then went to lunch. The place we picked for lunch was Chief Spring’s Fire & Irons Brew Pub. The food was great. Good beer too!
After lunch we headed up into the Blue Mountains in the Umatilla National Forest and made our way to the Kendell Skyline Road. We check out the sights along the way. We met Chadyb from Overland Bound at Table Rock Lookout. He told us about the area and then we headed on.
It was getting late, so we started looking for camp spots. We found a big area for our group to camp behind Bone Springs Warming Shelter. We set up camp and had dinner around the propane campfire.
