Ride to Ellensburg Pass, WA

More good weather this week and another chance to practice my dead lift. I planned to go by Mt.Rainier and to Naches on Hwy 410 but when I checked Cayuse and Chinook Passes are still closed. So I-90 to Ellensburg then over Ellensburg Pass to Naches and back over Durr Rd. through Umtanum Canyon. Here is a map for you know who-



A water canal near Cle Elum-



I recently saw a photo of B & B in Cle Elum that was an old railroad worker's bunkhouse. Looks like it almost burned down. I wonder if it will be rebuilt-



While looking for photo opps of Mt. Stewart I found a man's home is his castle-





Beautiful wild flowers were everywhere-





Just like last week, the 1890s were a tough time with diseases at the Thorp Cemetary-

Nice old school house south of Ellensburg-



Mt. Rainier under the clouds, near Ellensburg Pass-



S photos on Ellensburg Pass Rd in the rain, 2003-







I took three wrong roads until I found a place to rest. My nemesis, rock strewn climbs on dirt roads. Bessie got tried and took a rest. About 30 minutes before this my GPS went blank. Was it an omen. Reboot and it worked again-



Nice lunch view on Maloy Rd, FS-1713-



One of the wrong turns that led to a mud bog-

Forest Service was out setting fires-



Snack and gas then head up Naches-Wenas Rd looking for Durr Rd.-



Same spot 16 years ago on the S-



When I started up Durr Rd there was a dead end sign. As I was running late at this point I took Hwy 821 through Yakima Canyon to Ellensburg then home-



When I built this route it was 8.5 hrs including Duur and another little loop off 410. Back home the whole ride took 10 hrs.

Great photos and report grave yards always tell a story and just a world away from over here with wooden houses give us more.
