Since this was taken in 1975, is the land around the lake wilderness now?

No wilderness. One road. A big snowmobile area. We rode past it on the Overdose Ride, but no-one even slowed down.

I just got the battery in my bike and fingers are just starting to thaw. It snowed here a bit this morning. Decided to wait till tomorrow, to ride. Hope I can make it south.

Take care and keep the rubber side down!

Not Little Lost Lake, but getting closer.


Merry Christmas everyone.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h3CQp-NEXN8 This takes me to my kid days. Driving around Walla Walla looking at the lights.

And...Happy Birthday Phil (nephew, yesterday) and Tim (brother, today).

I'm cooking porkchops and corn dodger for my trip to the Salmon, tomorrow.

Not Fish Lake.

It is Crater Lake, below Crater Mountain. On the Freezeout Ridge Road (301).

It's above freezing and I'm heading toward French Creek on the Salmon. If you don't hear from me in a couple weeks send out a posse. Dump my ashes off the north side of Simmons Peak (in the Red Ives District of St Joe Forest)

I'll hand off to 650x since he's the last person to guess.

Okay, Dick, will take over but will keep the lake theme going with this picture;

Name the Lakes:

Bonus points if you can name the place I took the picture from.

I know this one but I think I am disqualified because I was probably on this ride. Someone else will get it. Merry Christmas.

This is St Joe Lake



Still a nice round lake, but less trees. This was the end of July and we still were blocked by snow in some areas. We hiked into St Joe Lake.

I could ride trail to the viewpoint of the lake in question, but the trail down that mountain was beyond my skills.
I see you broke out the ole slides and pics from the ride that "You, Tim and Mike" took.....
I will have to say....... you missed out on some good grub on Christmas..... But dont worry, I still have leftovers... lol

Ed:

I am going to pass the torch to you on this one. Rocky and I am currently in Goldfield NV with a really poor internet connection and I can't really keep track of this thread right now. Tomorrow we plan to ride around this area and then move south to southern Death Valley for the rest of the week.

Will be having to much fun riding in the warm weather to really take care of keeping up with this thread for now.

Hopefully in the evenings, I will be able to post a ride report of each days riding.

Okay I'll just add hints to your original picture. Hint #1: Central Idaho really high elevation.

Twin Lakes from the Twin Peaks lookout.

It's a guess, I'll admit. I'm planning a trip up there and would like to get in as far as Sleeping Deer Lookout. It looks right on the map.
A little smokey during the pic. Typical for central Idaho in late summer.
