On Monday, August 17th 2020, Liberty State Overland Club members met up at Viking Village in Selah for the Blue Mountains Overland Trip. We convoyed to Dayton. In Dayton, we stopped for fuel. Foxracer stopped at Chief Spring’s Brew Pub and filled up a growler with IPA. Don went to the part store and the rest of us waited across from the Columbia County Courthouse. After everyone was ready, we headed up Kendall Skyline Road toward the Blue Mountains in the Umatilla National Forest. We took a short break along the road once we found shade.
After the break we headed on up. We found a big area to pull off and stop there for lunch. Shelby was happy to be able to get out of the Jeep after the long ride.
After lunch we continued on Kendall Skyline Road. We stopped for a break at the Kendall Skyline Road Monument.
We then head toward Table Rock Lookout. The gate was close with a sign saying the lookout area was close due to Covid-19. We moved on and stopped at Bone Springs Warming Shelter. We set up camp and had dinner around the propane campfire.
