September 18th through the 20th of 2009, Region 4 of the PNW4WDA held an event called “Pick Up A Mountain” in the Nile area west of Naches in Jim Sprick Park.
Eastern Washington Off Road members meet up at 8 AM Saturday September 19th, 2009. Some members camped and others drove up for the day. Here is “Pick Up A Mountain” from our day at the event.
Everyone signing in with the Shindig Wheelers.
The Timber Wolves ran the raffle.
We aired down and headed up FS1701. Our first stop was at the SF1701/FS530 Camp to pick up trash. We ran into some people that were camp there which already did a good job picking up. They thought this was a great thing the wheelers were doing. We took some of the bigger pieces of trash that they had no room to haul off.
Up at the top of FS1701 we turned onto 4W694 at the trail head near Barber Springs Road.
On up the trail we stopped at a camp where last year we hauled off a lot of stuff. Again we found a lot to haul off that was left here over the year.
Monster found some carpet.
The guys found some plastic and a tarp.
Crawl Mama happy to be there.
Jarrod found a table.
Tiny found I think a cot frame.

At 4W670 we had some people pick up trash down to FS1701 and then back up.
We stopped at the Manastash Vista to pick up trash. It was raining pretty good.
The rain slowed down to a mist and the sun started coming out.
Ron Dunn AKA Ron the Parts Guy used the tarp we had found earlier since him and he son were getting wet.
I thought this side-by-side was going to run Jeepscum over.
Jeepscum walked a long way picking up trash.
We picked up Funny Rocks as we went through. “Phantom 309” was climbing the rocks when we got there.
We moved onto trail 4W695 and past through Moon Rocks picking up trash.

One we were regrouped we headed on down FS1701 and then up FS530.
We turned down 4W675. We found a lot of stuff in this area.
We filled up most of the rig where we couldn’t fit much more. We headed on down the 4W675 to FS1702.
We stopped down FS1702 to pick up a long smashed RV crapper hoses in the road.
My XJ’s cargo area was close to full. Any more bags would have fell on the kids in the back seat.
More of the trash we picked up.

Now back to have some Region 4 fun.

I will have to bring a full size Chevy next time for the kids. LOL
The adult Jeep Race was very fun to watch.
He needs a new navigator for sure.
This was a great time thanks to all that came. It was great getting to meet some wheelers I had never met before.
A special thank you goes out to everyone that worked to make the event happen.
