Do you know about what time you will be there? And just a little heads up for you guys. I am not sure what the weather is like up there but it is raining down here.

Question Any planned rides on the Palouse?

Looks like a nice day here in Moscow, for now anyway. Is anyone planning on going riding today? I have some chores that will keep my busy until about 9:30 AM but not much after that. Is anyone wanting to go for a ride?

How long do you think it will last. The boss needs to know.

The weather held off long enough for us to get in a good ride. Neering Hill, East Cove, West Cove, a wave to the ancestors in Palouse Cemetery, a Palouse lunch, Rock Cr, Flannigan Cr, Estes Rd and back into Moscow just in time for a few sprinkles to hit my visor.

We did just over 100 mi within 15 mi of Moscow. Not much traffic. The roads are in good shape.

I was shocked to see my Grandfathers well maintained farm house was gone. Not just the house but the orchard and garden, the lawn with the big shade trees, all the out bldgs and the big barn where I played. Replaced by a truly ugly box of a house with no eves, porches or window trim. Very sad.

The skies were gloomy so I didn't use the camera, but the riding was good.

MrVintage: I hung out with James, Don and Bob last night. Got to hear first hand about the run to the cabin. We'll have to get out on some rides with those guys.

A couple days ago, I went in search of a covered bridge I'd seen many years ago while putting around in my truck (you might remember the bridge from the cover of the local phone book a few years ago). Here is a nice Palouse river oxbow on the way:

Finally got across the river:

Here it is. Unfortunately, it's now a private bridge on private property so this is as close as i could get.

The first commandment for every good explorer is that an expedition has two points: the point of departure and the point of arrival. If you intention is to make the second theoretical point coincide with the actual point of arrival, don't think about the means - because the journey is a virtual space that finishes when it finishes, and there are as many means as there are different ways of "finishing." That is to say, the means are endless.

Hey Guys and Gals... if you haven't made the run over to Palouse Falls this year... the falls are super this time of the year.. We drove from Clarkston through Pomeroy, Dodge Jct., Starbuck to Palouse Falls. Then return route was Wastucna, Hay, Central Ferry, back roads to Pomeroy and then on home to Clarkston... Great Day!!

the falls

I made it two weeks ago

You are right. I made a trip to Palouse Falls two weeks ago and it was awesome. Lots of Marmots running around and barking. The view was great and the ride was perfect. If anyone is planning to make a trip you should post it. I wouldn't mind going again.

Hey Wadel, great job with the ride photos. I tracked down the covered bridge a few years ago after seeing it on the phone book cover. I still haven't met you but our bikes must know each other from parking next to one another at work.

Everyone: I'm planning a trip to Joseph for lunch on May 9 (birthday ride!). It will be mostly twisty asphalt roads with the Spiral Highway, Asotin Grade, Rattesnake Grade, and perhaps a loop through Troy on the way back. Let's meet at the Sage Bakery in Uniontown at 8:30am (I'll be there early for a scone!).

Anyone from the valley interested? We could certainly meet somehwere...
