Now that is funny for sure. Thanks Craig. I glanced at it and it reminded me of a photo I have of Bachelor, but looking at it now with the massive Glacier it is clear. What's even funnier is that...

OBDR vs. WABDR

Yes in reply to that awesome photo, Oregon has great things to view, but I think it was the long gravely sections with no views that stuck out for me. Probably a ratio of views to miles that is...

Do you have the Butler Map? It shows all the bypasses. Each bypass is on easy dirt roads with no challenges. The northern part of the WABDR is not as difficult as Bethel Ridge, Cleman Mountain,...

Camp Spots along the WABDR

There are so many campgrounds along the route that you'll need to do some research and maybe base it more on where you wind up at the end of the day than pre-planning them (that's what we did and it...
