Report and photos by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Adventures

On Sunday November 2nd, 2008 we met up at the Ahtanum Sno-park.
We aired down and headed up the North Fork Ahtanum Road and onto the Blue Lake trail.

We stopped for a short break at Blue Lake.

At the 4W613 Upper Meadow we had to fix two Green Dot Markers.

The first one we just stood back up. It will need to be cut off and reburied next spring.

The next marker was broke all the way off so we put it back in the ground.

We headed out using the Strobach Mountain Trail and on down Cowiche Ridge to Cowiche Mill Road.

This was a fun run thanks to the people who came. I want to thank Waycrazy, BlindPilot, 4wheelingplus.com, PUO, Punisher, Crawl Dad, Guido and all the guest for the help.
