Great pix and memories

You live and ride in beautiful country. My buddy and I have made a few trips in that area, most recently Eastern Oregon and the Palouse (not so much water at the falls) and earlier the Pacific Nothwest in August where it snowed in Glacier the morning we were to cross
thanks for the great pix, good memories, and ideas for places we've not been.

I packed up my gear the Maryhill SP right after swilling down my coffee, and wolfing down the porridge. Soccer game at 3pm in Salem im outta Biggs at 830, southbound on 97 to Grass Valley. I take the 216 across to the West. The Deschutes rivver canyouis fantastic, the riding is better so no pics. Into the Tyge valley and on to Wamic and beyond the forest roads are terrific, soon i see this:


Timothy Lake:




I rode about 100 miles of this stuff:








Had a great lunch here in Detroit:


Made the game in time too!

Eastern Oregon and the Palouse... These are some of the best riding areas i have found to be sure.. I f you want to see lotsa water gushing over the falls or any of the major dams travel here in May, but the high country is pretty much a crap shoot except for July and August. If you come this way pm me id be happy to give more ideas!

Cheers

The weather conditions have been remarkable here in the Northwet for late September.. I think we have now set records for the longest dry-spell, not to mention how warm we have been. No real frost yet.

Another bluebird day, seeing as how i am already in Salem OR. I had better go to the coast, dont you think?

There are lots of twisty routes to explore in these parts. Today I am checking out hwy 18 and then the Nestucca River.. No disappointment here:




I made it to Hwy 101, rode up the hill and saw this:


this looks like a nice place to spend the day!


a nice view, but everybody else thinks so too:


The veiw you get before dropping down the hill to Cape Lookout State Park:




Walking on the beach close to my campsite:


Not bad to look at:

Sunday Sept. 30

After the amazing sunset, the night was illuminated by this:


When i got up it was not yet sunrise time, so i took a little walk down to the beach where i saw this sight:




It was now time to get motivated, its about 475 miles to home, but still a few things to see along the way.
3 big rocks for starters:




Cape Mears is a nice view:








From here i blasted hwy 6 back into Portland, then hwy 14 to Lyle, where i headed up the Klickitat. I motored thru Goldendale and Bickelton, then to Mabton, WA.. That was a great string of roads, i will do it in reverse next time! Wide open, fast, and very little traffic, too much fun to mess with photos, sorry!

Thanks for checking this out, cheers!

It looks like the riding here is coming to a seasonal close. The VFR has fresh oil, filters, coolant, and stabilizer in the tank. Saturday was a nice day so when i got the plastics buttoned up I headed down by the Lake. There is a good crop of Bald Eagles feasting on the Kokanee salmon this year.

Got a few so-so pics..



You cant really see 'em, but they are soaring everywhere... really!




Caught this one in the act:


The bike enjoys the view




That might be all for the year folks, Cheers.

Springtime in the Republik!

The sun is finally up and up strong this weekend. Finally! Last weekend i got the viffer all prepped up, but it was kind of cold out. Today the skies smiled upon all activities of the great out doors. So I'm off!

One of my favorite rides is down 97 along the East side of Lk Coeur d'Alene to Harrison:


I was soon ambling along the Palouse River, near Harvard, Idaho... so i stopped in at the boy scout camp (camp Grizzly) where i have spent time with my boys years ago:


I followed the White Pine Scenic By-way to the Palouse Scenic By-way. If i ever need something fixed along the way, i will stop in here:


It was a great day to be out!
