If you'd come over and ride the Burn, you could crash like that all day long.




Thanks for the PO pics. I'm glad to see you are getting them while you can.

We will soon be photographing empty buildings.

PS Have a great photo of you on the superbug, but having no luck uploading.
It sure was nice seeing you again and I had fun riding with you. I hope it's not so long until you show up again. I'm sure adrenaline does lock in those experiences since what ever got that adrenaline flowing is memorable or something like that.....

I like that photo. Thanks I usually don't like photos of myself.

Allan can always be counted on for a good adventure and he's always good about looking out for me. He's a good friend but I'm sure he shakes his head at times and wonders why he hangs out with me. Lucky for me he keeps doing it.

Hi Pickle,

Isn't the burn (Tillamook Forest) where you sent Rainbow007 and I a few years ago? I did crash like that all day long.

Some of the old Post Offices are in interesting looking buildings and it seems like those are the ones that are closing. Some times it's fun just figuring out where the PO is in some of these small towns.

For the sake of history, I try to avoid the term "Tillamook Forest," but yes, that is the place.

I remember when it was a burned-out wasteland, and I have watched the forest grow up around the motorcycle trails. So, to me it will always be the Tillamook Burn.

I had forgotten that you had already done it, but rest assured, it has plenty more crashes waiting for you.

Fun stuff:

Indeed, the very first PO in my thread is up for sale, and it isn't even on the list of closures.



Thanks again for your efforts to document these places.

I'm getting bloated eating all this popcorn while waiting for your ride report. This picture is worth bumping up though.

No RR only about 3 pictures so it would be way short. Besides this one shot was worth the whole weekend.

Well on Friday I rode to Palouse Falls on Sherry's recommendation, they have a nice campground there overlooking the falls. In the morning I was up before the sun and I wandered around, I liked the look of these flowers they seemed to be waiting for the sunrise




After lunch on Saturday Sherry led me up Marble Creek, she showed me this cool old tunnel. The tunnel isn't very long and it dropped us back on the road a little ways down the hill from our bikes, we decided to walk back on the road little knowing how much ground that tunnel cut off the road. While we were walking I was able to get down on the creek for this shot.



On my trip home on Sunday it was a bluebird day and I only stopped a couple of times for photos. I did take the some very small roads, I shot this on a summer road.




This was right off the state hwy



Well that is all I have.

How is it that I take what (generously) can be called snapshots...while others can get beautiful photographs like that? Fantastic pics! Doesn't that tunnel on Marble Creek fool you? It seems like a very short distance through the tunnel, but MUCH longer walking back up the road.

Great pictures Allan, thanks for sharing. You're right those flowers do look like they are waiting for the sun to rise.

We looked at the road on the GPS where the tunnel is and it cuts off a huge amount. The road does a U there but when riding it you can't really tell and walking through the tunnel it is a very short distance - - - Walking the road is a long distance. It was fun though.

You'll need to enlighten us one day, but I'm sure that alcohol was not involved. Take care.


Kootenai hope all is well with you. Is David still in the area??

Yep... David's still around.... I think he's taking a loooong trip right now. I just saw pics from today on Facebook that he's up by Glacier NP....

Good to see you're up and about....you riding much?
