    RR: Annual Quilomene "Spring Opener" (WA State)

    Took our annual trip in the Quilomene/Colockum Wildlife area(s) of Wa. State a few weekends back. Started with a descent down the Quilomene Canyon itself to Quilomene Bay on the Wanapum Res. of the Columbia River. The 1st day (and night) were spent inside the fire line of last fall's "Colockum/Tarps Fire" which burned through most of the Colockum and a little of the "Q". Mother Nature Rebounded with a lush carpet of green grass (and other plants too including an impressive presence of Poison Oak) and areas on the closed (to motor vehicles-open to bikes) road in the bottom of the "Q" Canyon that had previously been clogged with brush & debris were burned clean. We rode sections of the old road bed that I'd never seen before due to overgrown brush. Camped the 1st night at Quilomene Bay and the second at Whiskey Dick Bay. Both bay's are empty/dry right now due to an emergency "draw-down" of the Wanapum Res. due to a large crack in the Wanapum Dam... so, unfortunately, no swimming in the bay's this trip.

    Vid's in the works...

    Happy Trails! Cheers!
