Edited VIDEO of our Green Dot Roads ride yesterday

This is one of my favorite places this time of year. The Green Dot Roads north and northwest of Vantage, along the Columbia River. I had no idea they were so much fun. I rode my XR400, so I cheated. You can ride ORV's there. But I think big or small bikes with the right knobbies would love this place. It is challenging, for sure.

Thanks for posting. Spent half my life on the Colockum. Now the kids can ride, too. Great times up there. Can't wait to camp up high to ride.

Sometimes the wind over there blows the dust out of the way.

They need to work on there sand over there, the grains are a mite big.

Nice! Your route was the reverse of the one some of us rode two weeks ago. What's your guess? Is brewton worse going down hill or up?

I don't know. I have only done it one way. But I have talked to those who say clockwise is easiest.

The setting sun has more impact on the return trip if late in the day. Having done both many times it is all the same. Good video Steve.
